^^What I was about to say. People are going by myths, rather than actual facts.

I think she touted herself as a fiscally conservative Democrat. Also maybe they like guns there? So like libertarian conservative?

I don't really think that or that Houston is particularly conservative though. I think I could be persuaded it's not as liberal as "first lesbian mayor of a major city" might imply, but I'm not sure.

Houston has always been fiscally conservative, and socially liberal.

Miami is actually a lot more conservative than most major cities.

It's not bad being conservative at times though. It's like if you got robbed but you shoot the person robbing you a liberal would be like "why did you have to shoot him man?". A conservative would be like "he deserved it, self defense."

You're right. Overall it evens out, but the larger cities (especially Tampa) are medium-blue liberal, if you will.
