Democratic Stronghold Elects Republican Mayor for First Time Since the 1800s

via FITSNEWS on Youtube

Republican William Cogswell has been elected as the new mayor of Charleston, South Carolina, marking the first time since the late 1800s that the city has had a Republican mayor.

Cogswell’s victory was considered “stunning” as city voters have historically been solidly Democratic.

The unofficial results gave Cogswell 51.04% of the vote, compared to the incumbent Mayor John Tecklenburg’s 48.96%. (Trending: SNL Legend Unleashes On Democrats)

“There’s a competitiveness to it of course but we ran a positive race and I think people responded well to that,” Cogswell told reporters.

“I wish John all the best, it’s nothing personal,” he continued.

“It’s time for the next generation, it’s time for the next chapter in our city, and I am excited to usher that in,” declared the new Mayor.

“I ask each and every Charlestonian, everyone out there, to give him your support,” encouraged Tecklenburg.

“Because starting tonight, when Mayor Cogswell succeeds, we all succeed. And that’s something we’re all in favor of,” added the Democrat.

The election was a run-off with no other mayoral candidates on the ballot, and Cogswell won without resorting to rancor and name-calling.

He will take office in January.
