Challenger Eddie Deloach will be the next mayor of Savannah, GA., a majority Black and Democratic city along the coast. This fact alone merits national attention, given racial and partisan divides overcome. Crime and a crying need for leadership to address it wove together a most unlikely coalition.
After the honeymoon period ends will come a marriage of policy and probable protest which will test the strength of this unlikely coalition. Conservatives should study the Eddie Deloach victory because it shows how common concerns and shared values can create unity where none existed. Savannah will survive her season of crime and decline, but only if she unapologetically stands united.
