All I can say from my door knocking in central Virginia is that I’m seeing increased enthusiasm from Red Virginia. They aren’t equivocating. Most of the voters I’m contacting are voting straight GOP. I’ve worked on campaigns that were not doing well and one of those was Jim Gilmores senate campaign in 2008 and the one feature I kept running into was Republicans who were voting for Warner. It was bad. That was one reason I was absolutely shocked by the Ras poll which thankfully was an outlier. This race is about turnout and if conservatives don’t turn out for our GOP ticket this year then they deserve to lose Virginia.
Fair enough, even in worst case scenario that Ken does not win, turnout from actual Virginians should be enough to ensure that the VA legislature is still dominated by actual Virginians who would sooner die that let Terry turn in into a carbon copy of Maryland.
