Mielke wins!

Tonite, the Clark County Elections Office officially certified Tom Mielke as the winner in the Clark County Commissioner's Election for seat 1!

It was a fascinating race, by any measure. Tom was obviously underfunded, the democrats were clueless at the county level and completely stuck on stupid over the casino (where Barnett paid good money for a friendly majority) the idiotic I-5 Bridge replacement and light rail.

That and all of the other tax/fee increasers local dems love to foist on us so they can pay off their union buddies killed the deal... and for the first time in 30 years, the Clark County Commission is under Republican control.

Is this the shape of things to come in 2010, when people have had 2 years to soak in the disaster that is democrat control of government?

Stay tuned!
