Past Scott County Elections

How have republican and democratic candidates done in Shakopee and Scott County in the past?

In the last couple elections—2008 and 2010—Scott County has typically voted majority Republican. Shakopee precincts tended to vote majority Republican as well. With redistricting changes, Shakopee is now in Minnesota Legislative District 55. Previously the city was in District 35. 

2008 Republican Presidential candidate John McCain led Scott County by a margin of 11.2 percent. However, President Obama did lead in a few Shakopee precincts.

This year U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar is up for re-election. In a slight change from the general trend, Klobuchar led the county in 2006 with less than 2.5 percentage points over the republican candidate.

U.S. Republican Senator John Kline has typically done well in Scott County and Shakopee.  In the 2008 Presidential election Kline led in most Shakopee precincts by small to large margins, except precinct 2. That changed in 2010 when he led all Shakopee precincts. This year Kline is running for re-election against Mike Obermueller (DFL).

Similarly, State House Representative Mike Beard (R), who is running for re-election against Chuck Berg (DFL), led every Shakopee precinct in 2008 except for precincts four and 12. In 2010 he led in all the Shakopee precincts.

State Senator Claire Robling, chose not to run for re-election. In 2010, she won the district by over 38 percent. Candidates Eric Pratt (R) and Kathy Busch (DFL) are the candidates for state senate district 55.

The headlines should be screaming "Millions of Americans duped again". Axelrod and the Chicago gang ran one of the sleaziest campaigns ever defining Romney as something he was not. What is the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Sadly, we will get more of the same from a president who was in over his head from day one. The Obamabots swallowed their lies, hook, line and sinker.
