Thank You Virginia.
The MSM has been running stories that the Tea Party is dead and has jumped the shark. NBut this stunning upset would seem to contradict that opinion.
To WaPo this is a devastating loss.....isn’t that telling?
Unfortunately, Gayham wins. I hope South Carolinians are happy with their familiar crapbag. What a joke. Total letdown, especially with how well Mississippi did voting for McDaniel.
That said, Brat’s victory is huge. Shamnesty is dead, and another conservative enters the House.
To Be a Virginian
either by birth, marriage, adoption,
or even on one’s mother’s side,
is an introduction to any state in the Union,
a passport to any foreign country,
and a benediction from the Almighty God.
Thank You Virginia. Thank you, thank you, thank you...
So, who will be the new Majority Leader (or Speaker for that matter, God willing)?
The Tea Party is Dead! Time for another 50 obituaries.
Problem is, Brat doesn’t have a lot of money and you know that the GOPe isn’t going to get behind him cash-wise...
Wait, just watch the GOP try to bring him down at election time!!!!!!!!!
Well, if Boehner does not seek it, unfortunately it goes to Whiplash McCarthy in terms of seniority, BUT he’s such a weak fraud I suspect Steve King or Raul Labrador could launch a credible run for it!
Good. I saw his lawn signs while visiting there this past weekend and said I hope he loses. Didn’t know I was gonna be in his district till I saw the signs. Awesome!
AND the icing on the cake . . . they said Brat did it with less than 100,000.00 spent on the race. WOW. IF true that is amazing to defeat a 24 year Washington insider and 12 terms in the House and Majority Leader of the House.
WOW. Go Brat! More races should be WON just like this!!! Clean House!
So, Virginia voters are throwing a temper tantrum again ??
< /Jennings OFF >
I saw on another board the libs are already planning on donating to the D guy.
WOW, that is awesome news!!! One less amnesty pimp.
THANK YOU VIRGINIA!
<< Problem is, Brat doesnt have a lot of money and you know that the GOPe isnt going to get behind him cash-wise...>>
The Chairman of the RPV, Pat Mullins, likes unity and he likes to win. He will do all he can to get Brat elected.
and more importantly, thank You, God
