Local voters ‘thought different’ from most March 8

Scott Sullivan
Locally, Ohio Governor Kasich, viewed by many as the most-moderate GOP option, and Gernant ran well ahead of where they did elsewhere. In Douglas, where 493 of 1,097 registered voters (45 percent) went to the polls, Kasich tallied 70 votes. Statewide winner Donald Trump finished second with 64. Gernant walloped Republican Mary Whiteford, the districtwide winner by a large margin, in the state House race 290 to 170.

John Kasich won the Republican presidential primary and Democrat David Gernant is the area’s new state representative, if Saugatuck-Douglas results March 8 are to be believed.

Saugatuck Township voters joined peers in both “thinking different,” to paraphrase an old ad campaign, than the general electorate in the recent Michigan election.
