Thread for discussion of tonight's VA Gov Elecitons Result. Is this too early?
Dickenson 7% Highland 7% Westmoreland 15% Sussex 17% Alleghany 9% Bristol 14% Northampton 19%
These days , ya never know,, anything from global warming to public indifference may sway the voters.. Some say, Virginny has changed,,It’s like the DC Fed crowd has swollen it’s masses and Lordy only knows how many illegal votes will be cast.. Hopefully, enough of the sane ones will show up and respect their fellow citizens and do the Right thing. Anything else stinks.. Once a clintinoid, yada yada.
The problem is Cuccinelli is not only running against the dimoKKKRATS but also the GOPE. I am afraid it is going to be this way for some time to come.
There’s the public library on Wayne Ave. and Westminister Presbyterian church at the top of the hill on the west side. What are the other two?
But the stakes are high today for VA, and particularly the Tea Party.
Christie wins a blowout in NJ. If Cuccinelli goes down, the GOP-e will be all over it claiming the Tea Party cost them the election with the shutdown, etc, etc, and the state GOP in VA will rewrite the rules to ensure an EW Jackson never happens again.
They will point to today’s results as proof of “centralizing” and “appealing to moderates” as essential.
Cucinelli stepped in it when he dissed Cruz at a time he should have associated himself with him, but that’s what you get for listening to consultants. The problem, though, is that isn’t the narrative that’s going to be reported, it’s going to be how the “Tea Part hijacked the Lt Gov race in VA, caused the shutdown, and led to defeat of the VA Gov race, while the RINO in NJ wins in a landslide”. The stories are already on the printing press.
(1) Christie being pro-life
(2) Christie defunding Planned Parenthood
(3) Christie against gay marriage.
These are solid Tea Party positions. (P) In his first won, first thing Christie did was make an unannounced visit to a Christian conservative group---to thank them for their support.
Back then, his running mate was lacerated----b/c as a county sheriff she had hammered latino lawbreakers.
These are hardly RINO positions.
So, basically, the Libertarian faction is going to screw the pooch once again - and take what’s left of the country down the crapper with them ... I am really beginning to loathe the obstinate refusal to live in reality, rather to pursue their “impossible dream” - the one that invariably turns victory into defeat, and brings Americans ever deeper into the communist nightmare. If VA puts McAuliffe into the Governor’s mansion, then you might as well kiss this country goodbye - because I think this contest a very good bellwether for what the 2014 midterms will produce - much to the surprise of many ... Some just refuse to see how far gone we are.
Obama Campaign Bundler Helping Fund Libertarian in Tight Election
A major Democratic Party benefactor and Obama campaign bundler helped pay for professional petition circulators responsible for getting Virginia Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Robert C. Sarvis on the ballot a move that could split conservative votes in a tight race.
Campaign finance records show the Libertarian Booster PAC has made the largest independent contribution to Sarvis campaign, helping to pay for professional petition circulators who collected signatures necessary to get Sarvis name on Tuesdays statewide ballot.
Austin, Texas, software billionaire Joe Liemandt is the Libertarian Booster PACs major benefactor. Hes also a top bundler for President Barack Obama. This revelation comes as Virginia voters head to the polls Tuesday in an election where some observers say the third-party gubernatorial candidate could be a spoiler for Republican Ken Cuccinelli.
According to Virginia election filings posted by the Virginia Public Access Project, Liemandt contributed $150,000 of the Texas-based Libertarian Booster PACs $229,000 revenue. The Libertarian Booster PAC reported providing $11,454 to pay for signature collection, yard signs and campaign materials for Sarvis and another $4,690 for four Libertarian candidates running for the Virginia state legislature.
It’s like when Ross Perot helped Bill Clinton get a second term.
I’m also in central Virginia. It’s cloudy but dry here. Wish it was raining to keep down the Rats.
My husband voted at lunchtime; he said there were only a few people there. I’ll go later this afternoon.
COME ON, VA CONSERVATIVES-——GET YOUR BUTT UP AND VOTE!
Not defending the Libertarian faction, but we need to call Sarvis for what he is: a Democrat sponsored and funded stalking horse spoiler candidate who is billing himself as a Libertarian in order to provide a platform and siphon votes away from Cuccinelli.
If he’d actually run on Libertarian Party policies (legalize drugs, man. And pass the Scooby Snacks while you’re at it ...) he’d get less than 1% of the vote.
“am really beginning to loathe the obstinate refusal to live in reality, rather to pursue their impossible dream - the one that invariably turns victory into defeat, and brings Americans ever deeper into the communist nightmare”
I don’t mind them when you have two Democrats running -— e.g., Obama/McCain or Obama/Romney.
Here, when there is an actual conservative Republican? It’s a problem.
It’s also a lesson that conservatives need to be small-government conservatives, or they will lose elections.
Wow. Wish this had come a couple of months ago.
ashamed of my state.......but the media has convinced people ken c. is a crook in waiting and will make women scrub pots all day long.....the once great commonwealth is officially a blue state and a commie waste land....convinced our nation too stupid to prosper at this point
They can shovel BS with the best to them.
We’ll see who the real losers are soon enough..
I think I’ll pass on your conclusions!!! If KC loses tonight, it will be for a few reasons...but none of yours. KC never received support from the Republican establishment and his turnout was low becasue too many folks like some on this posting were defeated before the race even began. I am old short track and drag racer. I never once in my entire life got behind the wheel before the race began, and considered myself beaten before I even cranked up the engine!!!
I’m not big on naysayers and, I told you so, folks!!! Actually...I think this site should be remeoved. If KC loses tonight....and he well could...it will not kill the “Tea Party”. I am tempted to say your ploy is designed to tweek KC folks thinking all is lost. I read your bio carefully and it is full of holes, if one knows how to read it between the lines. I have spent a career reading contract language, and actually yours is garbage can material, no pun intended!!!
I’ll prefer to wait for the results tonight and depend on other posters for my moving and current inputs!!! You have enough gullible folks following you!!!
I think I’m in the only place in the country that doesn’t have something to vote on today.
Yeah but the numbers are worse for the Dems and the GOP is in the toilet. It would matter if people hated ODimwit and liked anyone else. Obama is just hated a but less than the other two is all.
