A Defeat For Socialism At The Polls 👊
It’s not just Virginians who voted this week to give far-left politicians a shellacking.
On Tuesday, socialism was on the ballot in Buffalo, New York—in the form of an AOC-backed, self-professing socialist mayoral candidate. Voters took to the polls and said: “No thanks.” It turns out, Americans don’t want extremists who support hiking taxes and slashing police budgets leading their cities.

A Win For Safety And Common Sense 👮 🙌
Let’s keep the good news coming: When given the choice, Americans won’t let liberals undermine the brave police officers who keep them safe. On Tuesday, Minneapolis residents soundly rejected a measure to eliminate the city’s police department. It failed 57% to 44%.
Voters also ousted four city council members who tried to cripple law enforcement. Minneapolis delivered a clear answer to the liberals who decried police as rioters looted their businesses and endangered their families. Who else did Minneapolis send a message to? Squad member Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who supported the failed anti-police measure. Do you need any more proof that the far left is out of touch with what Americans want and need?
One Minneapolis resident put it best: “I live in one of the neighborhoods most impacted by crime and violence….We can have enough police to keep our children, our elderly safe…This was a win tonight.”
