All Republican challengers to council lost, including a stealth write-in campaign against Molly Leight in the South ward. Blue NC member Dan Besse (SW), successful Democratic primary challengers Derwin Montgomery (E) and James Taylor (SE), unopposed Democratic Mayor Allen Joines, and the other Democratic nominees for council in NE, N, NW, and S wards won. West ward is still held by a Republican who ran unopposed.
The incumbents were weighed down by screwups in the financing of the baseball stadium, the incentive package to recently departed Dell, and a bunch of pissed-off new residents in annexed areas. Despite this perfect storm of local reactionary fervor combined with the national teabagger craze, conservatives made exactly zero gains in W-S.
To make it worse for them, all those teabaggers' heads are currently exploding over NY-23. Though I'd trade that for Maine Q1 anyday.
