When some are speculating that the Republican Party will go the way of the Whigs, who disappeared in the 1850s, the Whig Party is reborn:

Robert Bucholz, who Rhawnhurst voters chose as Judge of Election for the 5th Division in the 56th Ward, became the first Whig elected in Philadelphia in 157 years. He beat out Democratic candidate Loretta Probasco, who received 24 votes to Bucholz’s 36.

“As neither a Republican nor Democrat, in a city with a reputation for electoral dishonesty, I am an honest broker in administering elections,” Bucholz said Wednesday in an email.

By the way, those who think the Republicans will follow the path of the Whigs are quite wrong.

They have already chosen to follow the path of the Know-Nothings.
