While in an email discussion with the publisher of an influential Sacramento daily political newsletter I was informed that the 2012 Presidential and Senate election results by California congressional, assembly, and state senate districts aren't available anywhere. Apparently he was waiting for a political consultant to provide them. Since they aren't available elsewhere I figure that any reader from RRH should have them at their fingertips to give them a leg up should they need them.
Elections have consequences -- from the race for President to the race for one seat on a city council. The political economist Max Weber wrote that the state possesses a monopoly on the legitimate use of force. But in the United States, the state is divided into myriad federal, state, and local entities. And the elections to fill those entities are the products of the fascinating interactions between campaigns, party affiliations, voter turnout, and the media spotlight. Red Racing Horses analyzes those elections -- from a Republican-leaning perspective -- to keep a close eye on the process of electing officials, and to offer our perspective on the election-related issues of the day. Thank you for visiting, and we hope you'll enjoy the blog.
