Douglas County, Kansas (Lawrence) - Home of the University of Kansas, it never voted for a Democrat from statehood until 1964, yet today it's arguably the most liberal county in the state (excluding Wyandotte).

Teton County, Wyoming was a very republican county until about 10-20 years ago. If I recall, its also the wealthiest county in the state.

Dallas, Harris, Bexar and Travis counties in Texas.  They all voted for Bush in 2000/2004 except Travis county, then Obama won them all in his first term. Coconino and Pima counties in Arizona started to trend Democrat after the '88 election won by Bush I.
