I thought Texas was anti-socialist in it's policies.. oh wait, that's just to the citizenry, not big business. Geographies accepting google's terms of deployment have to co-locate fiber facilities & partially subsidize them with taxpayer dollars. Usually that's not a match for a state that doesn't try to give away taxpayer monies unless it helps them [read: Republicans] politically.
Then they should come to Columbus, OH were the same way. I'm sure our republican gov will toss some cash at them, he'll just mortgage another state property. Even if that means a Democratic Mayor gets a lil boost for it coming here, since we are the capital of the state.
And as a whole neither KCK or KCMO have voted GOP. But N/S KCMO are somewhat more moderate than central, especially North. Not sure why you brought it up as many blue cities have moderate parts of town.
