Parties go through cycles of ascendency and then recede to ascend again. In Delaware, it is clear that the Democrats went through a period of dominance just like the Republicans did. The state has these cycles. Now the Republicans are in a position to regain their footing. Democrats are a super-majority in both houses, they hold 8 of 9 statewide offices. They rule two of the three county governments. They have 47% of the registered voters and rising. Predicting a coming Republican majority is interesting to say the least, but truthfully, the Democrats peaked in 2008 and we see evidence of the majority being spent. In 2012 Republicans survived reapportionment and actually gained a net seat in the senate and held the seats in the house and senate that were designed to remove GOP incumbents. The Governor and Lt. Governor will be open in 2016. The office of insurance commissioner was an easy take except the GOP sabotaged itself by not funding a candidate who proved to be strong enough to take 20% of the vote in Wilmington. The office will likely be open or subject to bitter primary. In 2014, the Republicans will pick up a senate seat and could well be in position to take the senate with a serious effort. Kent County could well have a Republican majority in 3 years. If the GOP can hold the auditor, and gain seats that the Democrats seem to be wanting to give them with their radical agenda of late, by 2020 we will be wondering what people were talking about when they discussed a permanent Democrat majority, just like when they were talking about a permanent Republican one 20 years ago. The only question is will Republicans get the infighting out of their system and decide to fight the other side?
