How would these cities be different had they both been controlled by Republicans the past 50 years?

About the same. Republicans are too busy looking for handouts.

But I'm sure the rich would love them.

Looking or giving handouts ? Show us the democrat politician that can match Ken Langone !!!
Just one of the republicans democrats want to demonize and punish for success !!!

Home Depot’s Ken Langone to Bernie Sanders: How much have you given to charity?

Langone donated $100 million in August 2018 to New York University to support free tuition for medical students.

Perhaps they would resemble San Diego - what an improvement!

Republicans run most of the rural crap holes around the country. They would be worse off.

It's really an impossible scenario. It would require that these cities be populated with conservative, God-fearing people. That never happened! It's like asking how would Miami and Santa Barbara be different had they both been controlled by anti-boating types. Organically impossible.
Constituents reflect their leaders good or bad.

If they were smart enough to vote for people who expected them to take care of themselves instead of depending on the government, maybe they’d be smart enough to take care of themselves instead of depending on the government.

Not a lick different. In fact, Republicans ran a lot of places......big cities like Philadelphia just when they were turning bad (not due to much except white flight).....

1884-1948 ALL Republican mayors in Philly.

La Guardia in NYC for a dozen years.......

No difference. Not a lick. In MA. we have a GOP Gov. - we also had Romney, yet we are the most liberal state in the USA.

It doesn't make a bit of difference. We like the checks and balances...so we often elect reasonable (they would definitely be called lefists or RINOs today) Republicans. But that type of Republican is more rare these days (the New England Republican).

All you have to do is see how NYC improved under Rudy.

Now, it's slowly returning to pre-Rudy days.

But the election of that resume padder to Congress tells us anybody can get elected.

All he had going for him was where he lived. Mayor of Heath, Texas is not a big deal. It's a golf course community that is a suburb of Dallas. I lived 10 miles from Heath, population 7000. When I lived there the whole county had 8500 people.

Padding his being a lawyer for the government got him nominated to be in charge of the security of the country. Scary.
