Red, but not Trump's America: Greetings from Carver County, Minnesota, where the GOP experienced some shrinkage in 2016

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.
