Fox News ^ | November 5, 2013

Posted on 11/05/2013 7:05:36 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Democrat Terry McAuliffe is projected to win the Virginia gubernatorial race, defeating Republican nominee Ken Cuccinelli in a surprisingly close victory.

Fox News projected McAuliffe as the winner Tuesday night.

The closely watched raced pitted a Tea Party-backed Republican and an establishment Democrat locked in an expensive, ideological battle whose outcome is expected to set a course for the 2014 and 2016 elections -- in large part forcing the GOP to consider whether a strong conservative candidate is the party’s best pick to win a national election.

Cuccinelli, trailing late by single digits, tried unsuccessfully to use voter dissatisfaction with ObamaCare to stage a come-from-behind victory over the better-funded McAuliffe....

Pretty close in a democrat trending state.

Looking like Detroit might elect their first white mayor since the 1970s.

A real pity. Republicans turned out but a Libertarian sapped a lot of what would have been GOP votes.

Cuccinelli did extremely well. GOP elites didn’t give him any support.

Dems financed a phony third party candidate, the GOP-e refused to support the candidate, while other RINOs go full-out anti-TEA party on Cooch. I say, given the circumstances, Cooch did OK. Dirty Dems at their best (or worst).

Fixed it.

forcing the GOP to consider whether a strong conservative candidate is the party’s best pick to win a national election.

They are implying that an "establishment" GOP candidate would have fared better than the tea party candidate.

However the "establishment GOP" candidate would have been a compromiser rather than a fighter. And probably with connections to the lobbyists and the, well, establishment.

Divide and conquer.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., on Thursday urged Virginia Republicans supporting Robert C. Sarvis, the Libertarian candidate for governor, to come home to the GOP and vote for Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, the party’s nominee.

Anyone stupid enough to vote for that libertarian doesn’t deserve to have the franchise. Of course, that goes for people who vote for Democrats, too.

News flash for the dickless quislings who constitute the "leadership" of the GOP:

If you tack toward the center to appease the baying hounds of the media, academia, and the left, you are doomed. You are throwing your base under the bus. Contrary to what some talking heads say, we do have someplace else to go - someplace where we will not be patronized, marginalized and demonized.

God Save The United States Of America!

It's a sad day when all of these groups would prefer a crooked politician, who is under investigation by several grand juries to an honest man fighting for the common man.

I foresee a major scandal in Virginia in the next few years.

If you all could take a few seconds to repost that picture of McAuliffe to imgur, it might boost its popularity enough for others to see it.

http://imgur.com/

Just save the picture, go to the imgur site, select “computer” and upload it off your computer. Appreciated.
