Silver Linings from Nov. 8

Rep. Karlee Macer (D)
saw her vote percentage
grow by 9% over 2014.

Out of all the mess of last Tuesday’s election results, it’s clear that Marion County actually did pretty much what it could for Democrats in the state of Indiana and locally to deliver a blue wave.

 
Democrats swept the Marion County seats where Republicans shockingly didn’t even bother to field a Coroner candidate and Dr. Lee Sloan will take over that critical role. Debbie Jenkins won a third term as Marion County Surveyor. Claudia Fuentes won a second go-around as Marion County Treasurer.

For the first time, Democrats beat Susan Brooks in Marion County part of the 5th District. Of course, she did very well in Hamilton County. Congressman André Carson again beat the baseline of his district in defeating Cat Ping in the 7th District.
Hillary Clinton, Evan Bayh, John Gregg, Glenda Ritz, and Judge Lorenzo Arredondo took big margins out of the county with them.

In the Indiana General Assembly, Marion County held serve. Seats that were Democrat stayed Democrat with mostly larger victory margins. Seats that were Republican saw their margins mostly trimmed or had to rely on margins outside Marion County to provide the victory.

Statewide, Republicans lost a seat in the House, and Democrats lost a seat in the Senate.
