Waukesha mayoral race: the aftermath

Since the results of the mayoral election in Waukesha, Democrats have celebrated and Republicans have been puzzled.

I spent some time in Waukesha over the weekend, and had a chance to discuss the results with some family members. One of them raised a very valid point. Even though the elections in the city are technically non-partisan, the city has a long history of electing mayors who lean Democratic.

While the county of Waukesha is solidly in the Republican camp, the city is much more diverse ethnically, economically, and politically. Since I was surprised by the results myself, I thought it necessary to post these points as follow-up.
