Opinion | The Left Takes a Hit in Seattle

There’s some good news in American politics, believe it or not, and in Seattle of all places. While votes are still being tallied, it’s clear that voters delivered a rebuke to the anti-police City Council.

Four seats held by progressives were won by candidates running on an anti-crime platform. Two others are still up for grabs, with another vacancy to be filled next year by the next City Council. Including Councillor-at-large Sara Nelson, who wasn’t up for a vote this year, moderates will now hold at least five of nine seats on what was arguably the most progressive City Council in America before this vote.
