Local Republicans elected because voters are unhappy

The Republicans on Election Night did not win because of Democratic disunity. They won big in Erie County because of what’s happening in Washington, D.C. The Harry Reid government shutdown (yes, Reid); Obamacare; President Obama lying.

Albany had a hand in the big Democratic defeat, too, with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s NY SAFE Act. Erie County is two-to-one Democrat, yet Republican candidates won big. It proves people, especially registered Democrats, are catching on and they don’t like what they see. They see our freedoms being stripped away. Maybe we are finally waking up from our long slumber. Here’s hoping!
