Selle: ‘Blue tsunami’ should be wake up call for county GOP

There’s certain things one didn’t expect in a lifetime. The fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Warsaw Pact/communism as we knew it were two.

Another was the shellacking Lake County Republicans took at the ballot box Nov. 6. The hits kept on coming last week when, like Florida, the last of the provisional and absentee ballots were tallied.

It was then that Sheriff Mark Curran, a Democrat turned Republican, learned he had been beaten by Democrat political newcomer John Idleberg. The margin was 137 votes, which once again should prove to doubters that every vote, indeed, counts.

Once all the votes were counted, Democrat candidates prevailed in races in normally Republican Lake County Board districts and two state House races. Indeed, it was a shocking, historic election for county Democrats. Who knew a lake could make that big a wave?
