I was on holiday in the US with my family during the elections of 2012 this time two years ago. We saw Air Force One and its accompanying presidential motorcade as we flew out of Richmond, Virginia to Savannah, Georgia.
The most amazing thing we saw that holiday was this advert from John Barrow who was a Democrat for Georgia’s 12th congressional district until last night. He was running for re-election at the same time as the presidential election.
Amazing fact: the democrats just lost their last white representative in the Deep South.

This morning I saw that he lost. Anyone who thinks that American politics is anything like ours needs to watch this!
