Tomorrow on 360° Gary Tuchman ventures deep into Texas for a look-see in the most anti-Obama corner of the country. We’re not exaggerating, honest.
King County, in the Texas panhandle, is a virtual vacuum when it comes to support for Democrats. Of the 3,140 counties in the United States, King County gave up the least for Barack Obama on Election Day – he won just eight votes. Eight. John McCain pulled in 93 percent of the vote – his biggest percentage win in the country on Election Day.
We were curious about the mood in King County, now that President Obama is in office. Are residents willing to give him a chance? You might be surprised by what Gary found. The county clerk gave him an earful. You can catch Gary’s full report tomorrow at 10 p.m. ET.
We’ll also have the latest on Governor Rod Blagojevich’s impeachment trial in the Illinois Senate. After skipping the first three days of hearings, Blagojevich is now pressing to deliver a closing argument before deliberations begin. The Senate is scheduled to vote tomorrow morning on whether to let him speak. Things should get really interesting if he gets the green light.
In the meantime, we’ll leave you with a pop quiz question: The ten most anti-Obama counties are in two states. We’ve already told you Texas is one of them. Which is the other?
