Even a Dead Democrat Beats a Green Candidate

This sums up my disgust with two-party politics in the United States.

In yesterday’s election, Anthony “Tony” DeLuca was on the ballot in my hometown county of Allegheny, Pennsylvania. A long-time Democratic representative, he was seeking re-election to the state’s 32nd legislative district.

DeLuca won easily, with over 85% of the vote. However, he was not able to celebrate his victory, as he had died of lymphoma on October 9. He was 85 years old.
