    RICHMOND - The intoxicating rush from campaigning returned to Jerry Kilgore's veins at a shopping mall, two weeks after he lost the gubernatorial election. The weekend excursion for Kilgore and his family was interrupted by dozens of people who kept stopping the recovering candidate to compliment his campaign and assure Kilgore they had voted for him.

    February 10, 2006 How I Won By Tim Kaine I am honored to be serving as the 70th governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. How I got to the governor's mansion is a story that may be of interest to other Democrats, especially given the daunting challenges my campaign faced. For starters, I ran in a state that President Bush had won by 8 percentage points in 2004. In addition, I began with a 21-point name identification deficit and lagged behind in every poll -- sometimes by double digits -- until September 2005, only two months before the election. Finally,...

    Republican Bob McDonnell once again declared victory in the Virginia attorney general’s race on Monday after the state Board of Elections certified the results of the Nov. 8 election. But Democrat Creigh Deeds immediately announced plans for a recount in the closest statewide election in modern Virginia history. McDonnell edged Democrat Creigh Deeds by a mere 323 votes – a margin of less than 0.01 percentage points. More than 1.94 million votes cast ballots in the contest. The elections board also certified the results in the races for governor, lieutenant governor and the House of Delegates. Democrat Tim Kaine was...

    Republicans nationally should draw a number of lessons from the party's unsuccessful effort to take back the Virginia governor's mansion this month. One of the more obvious ones is that the anti-tax party has to lead with an anti-tax candidate. Republican Jerry Kilgore, in his effort to win the backing of the Northern Virginia business community, played down his historical anti-tax leanings. He got the business support but lost the election.

    Former Virginia Gov. James S. Gilmore III yesterday said he will be a candidate for public office again because Republicans are losing elections by giving inconsistent messages on taxes. Mr. Gilmore, the last Republican to hold the state's top job, said Republican gubernatorial nominee Jerry W. Kilgore was not critical enough of the $1.38 billion tax increase championed by Gov. Mark Warner last year. "I'm frankly concerned," Mr. Gilmore told The Washington Times. "My intention is to speak out on these issues and help provide leadership any way I can and speak up on what direction I think the state...

    If last week's governors elections and the exuberant Democratic claims after sounded familiar, that's because it was, in the immortal words of Yogi Berra, "deja vu all over again." Four years ago, Democrats also won the governorships of Virginia and New Jersey in the only two statewide contests in that 2001 off-year election. The next day Democrats and political news analysts said the results proved Republicans were in trouble and would suffer serious losses in 2002's elections. But it didn't turn out that way. The Republicans, with some nonstop campaigning by President Bush, made sizable gains in the House and...

    VIRGINIA ISSUES: Kilgore Learns the High Cost of Compromise 2005 Virginia Election Analysis By Joe Glover “You can’t make friends of your enemies by making enemies of your friends.” The pundits are spinning the demise of Jerry Kilgore as a defeat for conservatism and a victory for the “moderate” middle of the road. Such conclusions are based on the idea that successful campaigns appeal to so-called “swing voters” who support “reasonable” candidates from either party on a given day. The poll numbers from Tuesday’s election tell us something entirely different, since two unapologetically pro-life, anti-tax conservative candidates fared much better...

    Weekly Standard ^ | 11/12/5 | Fred Barnes
    In 2004, the new hotbed of Republican voters was the outer suburbs, the so-called exurbs on the distant outskirts of a central city, packed with tract housing, strip malls, chain stores, a megachurch or two, and thousands and thousands of middle class and lower middle class families. President Bush romped in the exurbs. He won 97 of the 100 fastest-growing counties in America--most of them exurbs--and piled up a 1.72 million vote advantage over John Kerry. From the governor's election in Virginia last week, there's a bit of evidence that the Republican grip on the exurbs may be loosening. Jerry...

    To paraphrase the late conservative intellectual Richard Weaver, election results have consequences. The consequences of the off-year 2001 elections will not be limited to the manner in which the victors govern; they will have a national impact as future pretenders to public office ponder their meaning and plan campaigns accordingly. Republicans are likely to draw all the wrong lessons from November 6 and do so at their peril. To review, the GOP lost the governorship in both Virginia and New Jersey while retaining the mayor's office in New York City (the Houston mayoral race will be decided in a runoff)....

    Rise of the Center Voters Are Choosing Performance Over Rhetoric By David Ignatius With Tuesday's elections, you could sense a small shift in the polarities that have been tugging Republicans and Democrats toward their bases. All of a sudden the center doesn't look quite so lonely or inhospitable. In fact, it may be regaining its status as the commanding heights of American politics. That's the message I take from the victories of moderate Democrat Timothy Kaine in red-state Virginia and moderate Republican Michael Bloomberg in blue-state New York City. These are isolated events and can be explained in part by...

    SOME writers and thinkers on the Right are casting the results of Tuesday's election in very dark terms indeed — as worrisome for Republicans, if not more so, than even some gleeful Lefties have sought to claim. On this page yesterday, Robert Novak said of Democrat Tim Kaine's victory in the Virginia governor's race, "For a liberal Virginian to win a Southern red state signaled that cherished Republican majorities in both House and Senate, plus all the perquisites they entail, could be lost in 2006.

    RICHMOND -- President Bush's sinking popularity helped seal Democrat Timothy M. Kaine's victory in Virginia's gubernatorial election Tuesday, politicians and pollsters said yesterday. "We know that George Bush is just killing us," said Delegate David B. Albo, a Republican who narrowly defeated his Democratic challenger in Fairfax County. "His popularity just brought the ticket down. There's no other way to explain it."Mr. Kaine, the current lieutenant governor, defeated Republican Jerry W. Kilgore by six percentage points in a contest that had been a statistical dead heat in the days before the election.

    About the best thing Republicans can say after Tuesday's election debacle is that at least it happened in an off-off year. This was a Democratic rout any way you look at it, from the gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey to the ballot initiatives in California. If the GOP learns the wrong lessons, it'll happen again next year, when a lot more will be at stake. The press corps and Democrats will play up President Bush's drag on the party, and his low approval rating certainly didn't help. On the other hand, the one notable Republican who did win,...

    Gov.-elect Timothy M.

As he began the process of assembling a cabinet, Kaine said he plans to tour the state, stopping first in Manassas next week. As a candidate, he called traffic congestion on the state's roads a "crisis" and vowed to convene meetings with average people and transportation experts to discuss solutions.

    Democrats Win Elections in NJ, Va., Calif. Democrats cleaned up big in off-year elections from New Jersey to California, sinking the candidate who embraced President Bush in the final days of the Virginia governor's campaign. They also turned back GOP Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's efforts to limit the power of California's Democratic leaders. Democratic Sen. Jon Corzine easily won the New Jersey governor's seat after an expensive, mudslinging campaign, trouncing Republican Doug Forrester by 10 percentage points. Polls in the last week had forecast a much closer race. Democratic Lt. Gov. Tim Kaine won a solid victory in GOP-leaning Virginia, beating...

    There's a ritual, a kind of kabuki dance, to interpreting the results of the two gubernatorial elections, in Virginia and New Jersey, that are held the year after the presidential election. If one party wins both elections, its spin doctors claim that they are a verdict on the national administration—up if the national party's candidates win, down if (as in such elections going back now to 1989) the national party's candidates lose. The spin doctors of the other party quote Tip O'Neill's adage that "all politics is local" and say that the results were due to state and local issues...

    Democrats hoping to retake control of the US government glimpsed the beginnings of a possible comeback overnight, after major defeats for Republicans in election contests across the United States. California's action-hero-turned-Republican-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger suffered a stinging repudiation at the polls on Tuesday, failing to win approval for any of four referendum measures he proposed. With national balloting looming next year and a presidential election in 2008, Tuesday's setbacks are viewed as a bad omen for President George W. Bush's floundering party, and consequently are a hopeful sign for opposition Democrats eager to reclaim the White House and US Congress. "With...

    RUSH: Have you noticed when the liberals lose elections, the elections were stolen? I toyed with the idea today of trying to start this big movement that all these elections were flawed yesterday and that the voting machines were tampered with and that people tried to vote and weren't allowed to vote and there was discrimination against conservatives, and I wanted to lead the charge, saying these elections are illegitimate because they were stolen. But then I stopped, and then I realized, no, that's not the way to go about it. Because, as losers in these elections, those that we...

    Last night, after the Associated Press called the race for governor in Virginia for Tim Kaine, Mark Warner gave a speech. During the speech, Warner said something along the lines of "a big victory for democrats in Virginia." A big victory? Is Kaine winning alone a big victory, especially after he won by a much smaller margin than Warner is 2001? What about the republicans winning the Lt. Governor spot? What about the republicans winning the attorney general? Maybe not. After hearing more of Warner's speech, I heard him talk about "big pick-ups for democrats in the house of delegates."...

    The 2001 elections http://www.michaelbarone.com ^ | 11/7/01 | michael barone The 2001 elections, Democrats have been spinning for weeks, are a harbinger of what will come in 2002 and 2004. Anticipating the victories they have now won in the races for governor in New Jersey and Virginia, Democrats suggested that 2001 would show a weakening of the Republican Party and an inability by George W. Bush to translate his 85 percent-plus job approval rating into victories for Republican candidates. Now that we have the results, how valid are these claims? Odd-year elections are a harbinger of off-year and presidential-year elections...

    With early reports showing Republican Jerry Kilgore leading Democrat Tim Kaine in the Virginia governor's race, Democrats were all set to cry foul. Reports claiming that there were problems with Virginia's touch-screen voting machines had conspiracy theorists running wild at lefty web sites like Democratic Underground and the Daily Kos. In what sounded like the 2005 version of Palm Beach County's butterfly ballot, the computerized machines were said to be registering votes for Kilgore that were intended for Kaine.

    Virginians go to the polls today (open from 6 A.M. to 7 P.M.) to vote for governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, and candidates for the house of delegates. The big fight everyone’s focused on is the gubernatorial race where Governor Mark Warner’s Democratic successor, Tim Kaine, is running against Republican Attorney General and George Allen Protégé Jerry Kilgore. To make matters more interesting, a third-party candidate, Russ Potts, has decided to waste his (and our) time tilting at electoral windmills and scrambling political calculations. Potts is a Republican in Name Only from Winchester. What will happen when the polls close...

    Polls closed in Virginia and vote-counting began in elections for governor and other state posts -- races that are being closely watched for their potential national impact. Both the Republican and Democratic parties said turnout was the key to victory in an off-year election, and both sides worked feverishly all day to get their supporters among Virginia's 4.4 million registered voters to the state's 2,230 precincts to cast their ballots. Polls opened at 6 a.m. and closed at 7 p.m. An Arlington Co. resident recieves voting permit at the Wilson School Polling station in Arlington Va. An Arlington Co. resident...

    RICHMOND -- President Bush last night implored Virginians to choose Republican Jerry W. Kilgore for governor at the polls today while Gov. Mark Warner told voters that Timothy M. Kaine was the best choice in the too-close-to-call race. The last-minute presidential rally, held at the Dominion Hangar at the Richmond International Airport, attracted several thousand supporters who cheered as Air Force One touched down. "I know a man with character and integrity and he's standing right next to me, and that's Jerry Kilgore," said Mr. Bush, who, according to polls, has a record-low approval rating of 37 percent. "Put him...

    U.S. Sen. Jon Corzine (news, bio, voting record) acknowledged a little nervousness as he voted Tuesday in his race for governor of New Jersey, one of several contests being closely monitored for evidence of how the GOP's recent struggles are influencing voters. ADVERTISEMENT Tuesday's voting in New Jersey concluded a campaign that featured more personal attacks than actual talk about the issues. The races there and in Virginia — together the biggest contests in this off-year election season — broke spending records in both states, got progressively nasty and yet remained close. Several New Jersey voters said Tuesday they were...

    A vote for Kilgore TODAY'S EDITORIAL When Virginians go to the polls today to select the commonwealth's next governor, they will cast one of their most important votes in recent memory -- one that could determine the direction of their state for many years to come. The race between Republican Jerry Kilgore, a former attorney general and public safety secretary, and Democratic Lt. Gov. Tim Kaine gives voters a clear choice between a liberal and a conservative -- although one would hardly know it from Mr. Kaine's remarkably successful efforts to blur the differences between the candidates. Mr. Kilgore is...
