Virginia Governor's Race and US Election 2017 - America Fights Back?

That a career party flack like McAuliffe turned out to be a good governor is one of the bigger surprises of recent years for me.

Looks like he’s on the verge of tears.

Meanwhile in Texas

For you, @rrmorton:

Harry Enten 9:41 PM

One of my key races to watch was the county executive contest in New York’s Westchester County, where Republican incumbent Astorino is trying to hold on. In very early returns, he’s down 14 points.

My guy…

#211

Wow.


#212

So what dirty tricks will R’s pull out to keep the HoD in R hands?


#213

Danica Roem’s metal band, as mentioned above. I now am officially in love with this candidate:

#215

I mean, it really might be this simple.


#216

On some level, how could it not be?
He the head of the party. The nation hates him.

BTW, seriously, Tom Freaking Periello. Lost the VAGov primary to Northam, and didn’t go into a sulk or start talking about making a new party.

Instead, he worked his goddamn ass off, canvassing around the state relentlessly for months.

I think it’s obvious that Northam had this thing won on his own. But that statewide delegation? Have to think some of that is due to Periello’s tireless work.

When/if he decides to run again for statewide election, he has my enthusiastic support.

Jennifer Rubin is happy.

Just watched Justin Fairfax’s accpetance speech. Wow.

Future of the party. 38 years old. African American. Came up from poverty. Former federal prosecutor.
