It's All About the Cheddar

On, Wisconsin. On, Wisconsin. Plunge right through that line.
The Lake County election has been certified, and the numbers are clear: more people have crashed into the Long Grove bridge than voted for the Republican Party:
In Lake County, Democrats won every competitive countywide race and secured 14 of the 19 county board seats up for election.
In the suburban counties, the blue wave spread further
What up with that GOP -- the Party that once owned Lake County's political terrain? A few Party officials blame Darren Bailey. They say the voters were not ready for some farmer riding in on his turnip truck from McHenry Clay County.

But the Republican Party produced some high-quality candidates who lost as well. Like Congressional Candidate Kash Jackson Max Rice -- he reaped a mere 28% of the vote, which is not significantly better than the rounding error. And Supreme Court candidate Mark Curran who, despite being Lake County favorite son Mark Curran, couldn't top 39% in Lake County.

If anyone is to blame that would be Lake County moneybags Richard Uihlein. Whilst being from Lake County and whilst riding in on the moneybags truck, Uihlein chose to send his campaign donations elsewhere:
The Uihleins live in Illinois and have focused much of their giving in Wisconsin.
Inside the Billionaire-Backed 'Hub for Election Denial'
One knowledgeable political scientist offered a theory to explain it all: "It's nothing personal. Only business."
