The supermajority of the Chautauqua County Legislature will be Republican as of Jan. 1, while four Democrat incumbents are on their way out.

Vince Horrigan and Larry Barmore celebrate their election wins.
"We'll be able to do things we weren't able to do before," Hendrickson said, referring to the economy of the county and "expansion of what we have."

The trend continues. Republicans continue to lose at the national level (with a few exceptions) while gaining ground at the local level.
Not that big of change. The County Executive and the County Clerk were already Republican. Nice to have the super majority in the legislature though.

None of it matters. The communist state of NY will overrule everything they attempt with new regulations.
The Republicans lose on the national level because they never challenge the Democrat voter fraud that takes place in every national election. They should become suspicious when a polling place is located in a cemetery...and 110% there vote Democrat.
Always helps to include the State where your article is happening.
Republicans lose because they campaign on a slogan of “We Suck Less.”
The Rats always act as though Republicans appear in office by magic when in fact they are sent there by voters.
