Skip to comments.In a Northern Va. swing district, will Trump be enough for Democrats to unseat Rep. Comstock?

In a Northern Virginia swing district that is one of the most watched in this midterm election, one-quarter of the electorate cant really say what they think of state Sen. Jennifer Wexton. But in most polls, the Democrat is comfortably ahead of Rep. Barbara Comstock, the two-term Republican who is ubiquitous.
That phenomenon says plenty about this particular moment in this particular suburban district across the river from Washington, heavy with college-educated, affluent voters and growing immigrant communities. Voters in Virginias 10th Congressional District say they want to vote for a Democrat any Democrat as a check on President Trump.

POS. Pieces. Plural
Wexton makes everything a Trump issue.
The VA GOP lost it’s way.
That is the entire bottom line.
The VA GOP could have kept suburban bastions.
They could have campaigned with Trump.
“Voters in Virginias 10th Congressional District say they want to vote for a Democrat any Democrat as a check on President Trump.”
You can’t fix stupid.
Northern VA is very blue. The entire state is red except for the tidewater and the VA suburbs of DC. the state has been trending purple for years and now may be blue.
trouble is that that government workers vote about 95% blue. the feds are the major employer in northern va.
Comstock is a Bush League Republican.
No great loss.
Dont get Wexton’d vs. Barbara Trumpstock.
Virginia is gone. Federal government largesse built under Clinton, Bush, and Obama has flooded the DC area with government employees who vote to protect their personal interests at the expense of the country.
She voted with Trump 188% of the time.
Comstock the GOP candidate has a track record of being soft on immigration for example.
Not just the VA GOP, but the state itself. Its getting bluer by the day, and hatred of Trump rules the day in the dominant northern counties.
Northern VA thru out a State Republican incumbent (in the same district) in 2017 and instead sent a Tranny to the VA House; they are B@+$h!t crazy right now and will probably throw out Comstock.
As if a guy trying to stick with the U. S. Constitution would be someone that would be cause to unseat a politician who supported him.
The whole premise is flawed.
It should be: Will Support for a Conservative Nationalist be Enough to Save Rep Comstock?
Nationalist IS NOT a dirty word. I’m proud to be one.
I love my nation and the many excellent aspects of it.
This is almost laughable. They hate Trump so they assume that EVERYBODY hates Trump.
Whatever shortcomings Comstock had will be magnified by Wexton and every other dem.
Every loss hurts!
No loss, except overall House, if Comstock loses. She sucks.
