Message to McConnell, Ryan and Sessions.
I have little confidence that the Virginia GOP will fight to the last ditch like the Rats do routinely.

... governs best...governs least

Entire VA Senate up in 2018
Sorry , meant 2019

21R 19D with elections in 2019
Looking at the way VA is going, they are going to be in the minority very very soon anyways
Nope... the left is motivated by Trump Hatred... Blame the GOPe for putting a dud at the top of the ticket who could not bring the enthusiam needed to counter it.
