The political tsunami that swept Republicans into power in places they weren’t expected to was one of the top stories last week, as RedState reported. But there was also a pleasant surprise tucked among the Democrats who won — even in New York City — as Nick Arama included in a round-up of the winners nationally in last Tuesday’s elections.
Indeed, he’s certainly different in some striking ways from De Blasio. On Friday, Adams, the Brooklyn borough president, took his fellow progressive Democrats to task for the party’s devastating losses elsewhere. He didn’t mince words about what the issues are.
He name-checked two Democrat politicians in particular, whom he shared that message with.
But don’t get me wrong. Adams is still a progressive who believes that ‘government’ is the answer for most problems; For example, his answer to Bash about how COVID vaccinations are going in NY begins by sounding like any other Dem. He isn’t planning on scrapping the mandates his predecessor put in place.
