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.
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.
