democrats sweep dallas county

Dallas County Democrats are ecstatic this afternoon as they realize just how well they did in yesterday's elections. According to The Dallas Morning News, "Big D Means Democrat Again."
Riding a trend that began four years ago, Democrats have turned the tide in Dallas County, rejecting a high-profile GOP candidate for district attorney, kicking incumbent county judge Margaret Keliher to the curb and choosing dozens of Democrats for judicial posts.
Fox 4 Dallas reports that nearly 124,000 Dallas voters chose a straight Democratic ticket.

Dallas voters cut off two decades of Republican control in the county, sending a diverse group of Democrats to 42 judicial posts and six countywide offices, including the first black district attorney Craig Watkins. Watkins upset favored Republican Toby Shook.
