My take hasn’t changed. The GOPe made little effort to GOTV of their country club GOPer set. That’s why KC lost. KC wasn’t their guy and they didn’t have much desire to carrying him over the finish line.
What I find interesting is that the VA gov race was much more important to the Dems than the GOP. That’s why they won.
The GOP basically admits they’d rather have a Democrat win than a Tea Partier.
