Wake County Republican Party Chairwoman Susan Bryant is putting the best face forward on election results that cost the GOP control of the school board.
In the Elephant Express on Friday, Bryant writes that "Election Night was not the wholesale sweep for the Democrats you may be reading about in the N & O." She writes that "the municipal candidates we endorsed did very well," adding that "we have won 12 out of 20 races for sure, and are leading in the only undecided race in Morrisville."
Whether those wins in the smaller towns are enough to counterbalance the results for school board and municipal races in Cary and Raleigh is something that Republicans will be considering.
Also in the newsletter, Bryant urges people to cancel their N&O subscriptions. Bryant and school board candidate Heather Losurdo have opted to take a blame the N&O approach to account for the electoral results.
