I was shocked to read this thread this morning.
He apparently received a decent percentage of the black vote in the district. Evidently, district residents had finally tired of “Cold Cash” Jefferson.
I was shocked ...
I was too! Kinda restores my faith in my fellow voters....just a little!
Unfortunately, check the precinct stats. IN more than 100 precincts, Jefferson got over 91%, mostly 95+, so Cao got very little black vote. Cao was elected by an overwhelming white vote (40 precincts with 90+%!), and a very low black turnout. There were 150K votes in the Dem “primary” on Nov 4, and now Jefferson gets only 33K.
