Phew: County Commissioner In Hilarious Ad Kept His Seat

Posted: Nov 10, 2016 11:25 AM

Charlyn Daugherty got her wish: her husband Gerald was reelected as Travis County Commissioner from Precinct 3. In what was a very close election, Daugherty edged out his opponent and was elected to his fourth term.

The rather obscure election was vaulted to national prominence when an advertisement featuring an exasperated Charlyn Daughterty went viral. The ad, which was noted for being "unusually pleasant," received millions of views and could have played a real role in tipping the election to Gerald.

Congratulations, Charlyn. Peace and quiet can return to the household.
