Race and Politics in Beaver County, PA

This is a follow-up to a story the New York Times ran in August:

Naturally, they found someone that would actually use the word “colored” in public and was sure to quote her.  But on balance its a solid story, and this up against the August article seems to highlight something I figured would probably happen.  It might in some cases be reluctant, but most Democrats would wind up voting for Obama.  That seems to be happening here, but there are exceptions.  Of course, its usually for a less obvious reason but there usually are exceptions.
