You may very well be correct. Coverage of that race was spotty at best and short on detail.

Our governor is a dem.


And your state legislature is republican controlled. There's no blue trifecta in Virginia, that's why it's sort of a big deal.


Virginia is a blue state and he will have to answer to them.


Outside of NoVa, Richmond, and Tidewater, no it is definitely not a blue state. The only reason it's gone from predictably red to purple or, at most, light blue is because of what amounts to about ten counties out of the entire state.



Awful lot of red in there for such a blue state

Reminds me of when Clinton won 6 out of 6 coin tosses against Sanders for the Iowa Caucus.

Coin toss broke 6 Clinton-Sanders deadlocks in Iowa — and Hillary won each time

The Science Of Hillary Clinton's Coin Toss Victories

What are the odds!?

Agree with you. I have a lot of family in VA and everyone of them lean right and certainly feel outnumbered in NoVa. It used to not be that way and I believe the mast exodus from longstanding liberal controlled states like NY, PA, NJ, and MA have turned VA and my state of NC to purple. Damn our good weather!
Except here lately, I believe those folks brought the winter air with them too!

Which has been the ultimate goal of the American far right the whole time. Destroy the federal government by undermining its legitimacy and making it as inefficient as possible.

That's not going to sit well with a lot of people.


That doesn't differ much from democracy in general.

LOL! So you're blaming Republicans for their oppositional supporters' lack of graciousness upon losing? That's an interesting game of Twister right there. People need to take personal responsibility for their own reactions to losing, period.

Hard to believe a tie with the number of voters.
