The Red Wave that hit Virginia yesterday was a YUGE loss for Dems. The last time a Republican won any statewide election was 2009! And to add insult to injury, the Dems’ heaviest hitters – Obama, Biden, Harris, Abrams – all went to Virginia to campaign for McAuliffe.
Also, Dems would like the Republican win to be about Trump. But Trump himself stayed out of it and Youngkin didn’t talk about him, sticking instead to specific issues facing everyday Virginians. And he won a huge victory against the establishment Democrat who was considered a shoe-in.

(It’s not clear to me if that is anywhere in the U.S. or just in Virginia.) She and her hubby are both Marine veterans. 🙂
Democrats, as per usual, tried to make the white guy running against the white guy all about race. It really wasn’t, but they keep trying even when it means being offensively racist themselves.
Click the first Real Clear Politics link below to watch her tell FOX News host Martha MacCallum, “I am destroying all of the narratives about race. Look at me! Look at me! I wish Joy Reid would invite me on her show. Let’s see if she is woman enough to do that.”
Click the second Real Clear Politics link below to hear Hannity interview Youngkin late Monday evening. “I’m not going to be lectured by a guy on race who embraces someone who wore blackface.”
The projected winner (I haven’t seen it confirmed yet) of the attorney general race, Republican Jason Miyares, will likely become the first Latino to hold that office, again not clear if it’s anywhere or just in Virginia.
They’re also saying Republicans won big in Virginia’s down ballot races, but I haven’t seen a list.
Meanwhile, Democrats are busy, busy, busy pointing fingers at each other over who is at fault for Tuesday’s Red Wave. Breitbart reports, “The moderates claim radical policies are responsible for the drubbing, while the far-left claims the thrashing was Biden’s fault for not passing his radical reconciliation agenda through Congress quickly enough.”
The other “Not Our Fault” positions echo Biden’s pre-election day statement that, win or lose, the Virginia gubernatorial race had nothing to do with him and his party’s performance at the federal level. “It was about local issues”, not anything “Democrats or anything we did here in Washington.” – Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX)
When a reporter asked Speaker Pelosi if the brutal Democrat losses in Virginia would change the agenda for the House, she said, “No. No.”
But that’s not what VFAUXTUS said when she went to Virginia to campaign for McAuliffe! LOLCLICK https://rumble.com/vomz19-vp-harris-what-happens-in-virginia…-will-determine-2022-2024-and-on.html [:12] to hear what we can all hope is a prophetic statement!
