Washington Post’s Harold Meyerson points out that just 20 years ago, half of America’s dozen largest cities had Republican mayors. Today, that number is just one.
Just 4 of the nation’s top 30 cities have Republican mayors.
Of the top 50 cities, just 9 are Republican, according to CityMayors.com. Two are registered independents, including our own Mayor Carolyn Goodman of Las Vegas.
There is also one mayor registered as a “Democratic Farm Labor” member in Minneapolis. Meyerson also notes that there have been a growing number of progressive mayors who have beaten out more establishment Democrat mayors in recent years.
