    This is a seriously bad omen for Democrats. They lost a swing district by about a 4% margin, not even close really.

    Voters Defeat 'Green New Deal' Advocate in Los Angeles City Council Race | Breitbart

    Republican John Lee defeated Democrat Loraine Lundquist on Tuesday in a special election for a vacant northwest San Fernando Valley seat on the Los Angeles City Council in which the Democrat backed L.A.’s version of the “Green New Deal.”
    Lundquist, an academic, supported L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti’s plan to shutter three natural gas power plants and replace them with wind and solar power, though officials said that would be insufficient for the city’s needs.


    Lee, a former City Hall staffer, attacked the Green New Deal and received support from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 18. The IBEW, which is the largest union representing Department of Public Works employees, typically backs Democrats.

    The best news would be the expunging of Donald Trump from the office of POTUS.

    Now that the doper diaper babies have their legalized pot, they will drop back out of political 'activism'. They're too self-centered and materialistic to turn into the Good Reds the Democrats and Wall Street want them to be; academia has failed it's mission of indoctrinating them thoroughly, best it could do was produce a mass of half-wits with high self-esteem, so the Democrats are left with violent racism and calling for the murders of police as it's only 'unifying' policy platform now. Get those illegal into the country and get them to the polls in 2020; it's their last gasp.

    And, don't be surprised to be seeing several in the GOP establishment help them.

    Who would you replace him with?

    Mike Pence?

    Nancy Pelosi?

    Let me guess you think Hillary still can become President?

    Mike Penis is a bogus Christian and fears women.

    Any Democrat would do much better than the First Fool Donald Trump.
