    Does expanding the lead in the house matter? Not really - they have a virtual lock in the house and have enough on board to get anything that they really want to get passed done. The governorship was more important but also much harder to hold onto.

    Republicans still have twice as many Governors as the Democrats. This is not a big deal. Well, I guess it is if you're a Democrat sycophant desperately looking for a bright spot to cheer you up. :lol:

    Not in VA anymore. With dem socialism expanding federal government, the DC area has grown exponentially over the past several decades and that means the NOVA region of DC dominates that state's population and democrats have taken over the statewide elections. A small region filled with large numbers of white lefties and highspanics dictating to an enormous state. This is why the electoral college is important. Maybe VA should create their own county-based electoral college.

    The way the Dems are behaving having won in a predominately blue state filled with government workers, you'd think they won the House, Senate and the Presidency last night. :lmao:

    They persist in lying to themselves in order to feel good about the Identity Politics system that now controls the party.

    The Northrum ad against Gillespie that labels all his supporters as racists who want to mow down minority children with a truck is just way over the top and has been denounced all over the country.



    But not for blue dog Virginian Democrats.

    Democrats needed some justification for all their lies, corruption and demagoguery over the past year, and they found it by winning in a solid blue state? Ya gotta love it.

    In other news, I'm feeling very sorry for New Yorkers. They actually held their noses and voted for that nutjob De Blasio. Sad but true.

    How is it over the top when you Nazis ran over people in Charlottesville?

    Take your Confederate participation trophies and piss off.
