NBC News Highlighted Small-Town, Pro-Trump Democratic Mayor who Lost to Young Challenger

As if a small-town mayoral election is showing there is anti-Trump sentiment in Trump country (i.e. western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and West Virginia). NBC News heralded [1] the defeat of 79-year-old mayor of Monessen, Louis Mavrakis, to a 26-year-old assistant band director at a local high school named Matt Shorraw.

Monessen is located in western Pennsylvania, a region that helped Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential election.

Sorry, NBC News, but this is a non-story about Trump country into anti-Trump country.
