Gillespie Defeated in Virginia as Huge Democrat Turnout Devastates GOP

Ed Gillespie got more votes (1.18 million) yesterday than any Republican gubernatorial candidate in Virginia history, but Democrats produced a “tsunami” turnout that elected Ralph Northam and wiped out GOP candidates in down-ticket races.

#Charlottesville: The Left Unexpectedly Falls in Love With the Word ‘Terrorism’

Did a cartoon frog inspire a terrorist attack? When Micah Johnson assassinated five police officers in Dallas last year, the Left was eager to evade the most obvious explanation: This was a terrorist act inspired by a hate movement called Black Lives Matter.

Terry McAuliffe’s Pyrrhack Victory

Virginia Shocker: Cantor Canned

by Smitty Virginia is for lovers of elections and political gymnastics. Since its 2009 inception, the Tea Party had run an insurgency to force conventions for state-wide elections, which resulted in (what I thought) was a dynamite slate for last November’s elections: Cuccinelli/Jackson/Obenshain. Alas, the GOP elite didn’t seem to care much about this off-year […]
