What's practically unbelievable is that San Francisco still had one Republican (on the board of transit) as late as 2014. Apparently, to defeat him, his opponent used the brilliant strategy of reminding everyone that he was Republican. This article bragging about it is kind of funny. A trained monkey could win in San Francisco if they won the Democratic primary.
