    Did Ted Shutdown Cruz Overreach And Cost The Republicans An Easy Win In The Virginia’s Governor’s Race? I think we are seeing the chickens come home to roost in Virginia. Republicans working for the federal government haven’t seen a raise since 2011. They’ve been furloughed and abused by the national GOP and the TEA party. Seems like these loyal Republicans either 1) didn’t vote or 2) voted for the Democrat.

    Is this an ill omen for Republicans, as Midterms are less than 12 short months ahead? Ted Cruz wants another shutdown in January or Februrary. The TEA Party wants one too.

    Is the TEA Party darling, Cruz, willing to sink the national GOP to further his ambitions at the expense of the Republican party?

    We shall see. Indeed.

      Although I agree that voters have been turned off by the shenanigans of the Tea party Republicans, especially their leader, Ted shutdown Cruz, I don’t think Democrats can rest on their laurels for one minute through the midterm elections. The governor’s race was not an easy win….McAuliiffe won by a narrow margin and after spending a significant amount more on his campaign than Cucinelli. Democrat voters need to remain alert and active.

      I think Ted Cruz will continue to do what he thinks is best for Ted Cruz.

    Will The News Of Terry McAuliffe’s Surprise Defeat In Virginia Mean Hillary Clinton Turned Voters Off? Will McAuliffe now losing Virginia’s governor’s race despite being favored will it hurt Hillary Clinton’s chances in 2016?

    Why Is The Elections In New Jersey And Virginia Getting Coverage In Great Britain? I was on-line and saw BBC Coverage on http://www.bbc.com about the off-year elections. Why is that news in Great Britain? I can see if it was a presidential election but for two Governor’s races why would that be news in UK? Do we have full coverage on our news sites of province elections in UK? No. So why is it important? Just curious.

    I live in the USA (Florida) and even I don’t know much about the two races except that in NJ Chris Christie is popular and I see now won the race.

    Who Will Win The All Important Virginia Governor’s Race; The Tea Party Guy Or The Distinguished Democratic? Statesman? WE’ll know before midnight. Close?

  • Why Is Terry McAuliffe Beating Tea PArty Ken Cuccinelli In Virginia’s Gubernatorial Election? “”“Even now, in the final days of the race, the McAuliffe camp and its outside-group backers are working hand in glove on a sophisticated field program: each participating group feeds its voter contact information into the same database every day, along with the campaign, and a daily report goes out documenting everything that’s been accomplished in the field.
    Throughout the year, McAuliffe’s campaign has given monthly briefings to its independent allies featuring extensive and unvarnished data presentations from campaign pollster Geoff Garin. Those meetings have all of the groups within the McAuliffe umbrella, including NARAL, the AFL-CIO, AFSCME, the National Education Association, the International Association of Firefighters, the Laborers International Union of North America and the Steelworkers union.

    Ken Cuccinelli is virtually fighting this war on his own versus the Democratic Party, the McAuliffe campaign and what seems to be an endless number of well-funded liberal groups,” said one Republican strategist. “Their side has come to the table with money. Ours has not. At a certain point, you can have endless conversations but unless somebody’s writing a check, what’s the point?”

      GOP Virginia basically bypassed the Primary process and decided on a more State appointed process by the right-wing GOP. They chose more of a Tea Party candidate. It’s backfired since the candidate is too extreme.

      It’s a good lesson learned and hopefully the GOP across the Country will come back to its senses…
