Progressive organizations scrambled over the weekend to give Democrats a boost in Tuesday's New Jersey and Virginia elections by rallying against Republican candidates who used ads linking gang crimes to Democratic candidates and immigration policies.

Organizations such as CASA in Action, America's Voice, and others have been focusing on Latino voters in Virginia, knocking door to door trying to remind Hispanics to vote on Tuesday. In a press release issued by Prospero Latino, the coalition of organizations claims to have knocked on fifty thousand doors and have texted over twenty thousand voters.

"The Virginia GOP and Ed Gillespie have run one of the most vile and anti-immigrant campaigns that we have ever seen in the commonwealth," said in a statement Julio Lainez, state director for America's Voice, an organization that advocates for liberal immigration policies. "As a Virginian, I am appalled by the vitriol and dog whistles that have been used to demonize our hard-working immigrant community."

Surprising because the VAGOP and Ed Gillespie are some of the reasons we have latino voters.

My fellow conservatives in NJ better wake up and vote. This Demrat Murphy running for Governor wants this state to go full ‘tard sanctuary and raise taxes.

What the article is really saying:

“boohoo, those rotten conservatives said mean things about the people’s representatives, MS13. As a liberal I’m #triggered”

I am thinking that the RATs will take NJ, but maybe the RINO will win in VA. The problem for NJ is it’s too small, and too close to NY. Sad for NJ Conservatives.

Hmmm...I work the polls... I wonder how long I’d be wearing it before the first complaint hit the board of elections switchboard.

Our polling place is in the basement fellowship hall of a church, with a ground level entrance and a great painting of Jesus and a couple of small children outside by the door. I’m surprised that no liberals have complained about the Savior yet.

Correct. Kind'a like yelling "five-oh, five-oh" at the front door of a frat house in the 70s, and listening as all the toilets started flushing.
