I have heard that refrain many times. Good luck, you'll need it.
FYI: It is LEGAL IMMIGRATION that has played a major role in turning VA blue. Except for Dave Brat and to a lesser extent Corey Stewart, Reps in VA are afraid to touch the subject. If we don't reduce legal immigration from the current 1.1 million legal permanent immigrants annually, the Dems will be the permanent majority party within a decade.
It’s certainly a factor, but the real impact came from tens of millions in outside money and the prepackaged New York style machine politics that came with it.
GOP in VA does business like it’s 1975. No chance against real statewide organization. Even the odds organizationally and we’ll find the GOP is still a firm majority in the state.
