Republicans and Democrats in Bloomington

Think about this for a minute. David Sabbagh got 3,826 votes in 2007. Mark Kruzan got 3,936 in 2011.

5,860 voters turned out in 2011.

10,364 voters turned out in 2007.

With the total number of votes cast only 56.5% of what it was 4 years ago, Kruzan’s 2011 total is still higher than Sabbagh’s 2007 total.

That’s amazing.
