Make that 21 elections.
For the past 21 elections, since 1936, Carver County has voted in the majority for a Republican candidate.
On Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump continued that trend, soundly defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton 29,063 to 21,514, or 58 percent to 32 percent of the vote.
That’s not to say there weren’t surprises among Carver County cities. The biggest upset was Chanhassen, a city that hasn't voted for a Democrat since George McGovern in 1972. Chanhassen voted for Hillary Clinton, by a vote of 7,003 to 6,754.
Chaska narrowly favored Trump, 6,177 to 5,828 over Clinton.
The vote in Carver was 1,145-930 in favor of Trump; while the vote in Victoria was 2,811-1,971 for Trump.
