    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is poised to implement a new regulation without legislative approval to join 10 other states in a climate change agreement based on restricting carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants.But lawmakers, policy analysts, and tea party activists in Virginia who oppose what they consider costly regulations of industry are raising questions about the economic and scientific arguments underpinning the proposed rule.They say the Virginia General Assembly should have a straight up-or-down vote on Northam’s plan, in part to ensure that any revenue the governor raises from “carbon trading” is collected and dispersed in a manner consistent...

    In addition to more than a dozen departed Republicans, something else seems to have gone missing this year from the Virginia House of Delegates: conservative bills on contentious social issues like abortion and LGBT rights. More than 1,300 pieces of legislation have been filed in the House so far, but there are no bathroom bills, no bills to protect opposition to gay marriage and no bills to restrict access to abortion. The filing deadline isnt until Friday, but many of the Republican lawmakers who attached their names to headline-grabbing bills in past sessions say they wont push the legislation again...

    Virginia elected officials thought they had taken politics out of highway funding when they adopted a new way of scoring and ranking transportation projects three years ago. But maybe not in this election year. With three statewide offices and the House of Delegates up for grabs in three weeks, a regional spat over highway funding caught fire Monday, as Secretary of Transportation Aubrey L. Layne Jr. took aim at Republican political leaders in Southwest Virginia who have accused Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, of doing too little to fund critical road projects in their region. Layne told the House Appropriations...
  • Live Election Report From Virginia

    I just voted in SW Virginia. Rural area, goes usually about 58-42 for the good guys (or at least the less-evil guys). More cars than usual for off year elections but no real wait inside. This was about noon. I'd guess that it was half of 2016 (Trump), and about equal to when Cuccinelli lost a very close race without any establishment help in 2013 to McAuliffe. Although the Dems have an edge in VA now, I still think it is very winnable for Republicans. My hope is that we pull out a win in a close election. For those...

    Weve long called the GOP The Stupid Party, and it certainly deserves the nickname, but whats the right family-friendly adjective for the Democrat Party? The Moronic Party? The Mind-Bogglingly Nuts Party? What moniker best reflects a party you dare not trust with power? These people are to governing as Kevin Spacey is to babysitting.Just look at the Democrats governors race in the Commonwealth of Virginia to the extent that its a race and not one of those weird pilgrimages where the marchers flog themselves every step of the way. Not that Democrats dont deserve flogging and its only...

    Republican Ed Gillespie is now narrowly leading the Virginia gubernatorial race by 3 points, according to a new poll, just three days before Tuesday's election. The new poll of likely Virginia voters by Republican firm Optimus/Firehouse Strategies over Wednesday and Thursday shows Gillespie leading his Democratic opponent Ralph Northam by 40.4 percent to 37.4 percent. His lead is just outside the poll's margin of error. Recent polls have suggested a late-game comeback for Gillespie, who trailed Northam by a small margin for recent months of the race, with a Friday poll showing the two locked in a dead heat at...

    New York magazine contributor Andrew Sullivan has a well deserved reputation as being an unhinged liberal anti-Trumper. However, unlike most leftists, Sullivan does experience brief moments of mental clarity. Such a moment occurred today when Sullivan experienced extreme foreboding about the outcome of next weeks gubernatorial election in Virginia. He fears that the Democrat stance on immigration has a good chance of leading to the defeat of Ralph Northam in How the Democrats Are Failing the Resistance:

    New campaign finance reports reveal that Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northams campaign coordinated with the Latino Victory Fund (LVF) on the LVFs sickening ad, which even the Washington Post called vile. The Latino Victory Fund ran an ad that featured an Ed Gillespie supporter attempting to run down minority children. The Gillespie campaign decried this ad as disgusting and an attack on the people of Virginia. A report from the Washington Post suggested that the LVF allegedly created their controversial ad to spur minority support for Virginia Democrat Ralph Northam due to private polling that reveals low support for...

    National Review ^ | 10/26/17 | Alexandra Desanctis
    A shocking new poll in the Virginia gubernatorial race puts Republican candidate Ed Gillespie a full eight points ahead of his Democratic opponent, current lieutenant governor Ralph Northam. The Hampton University poll, out yesterday, surveyed 750 likely voters in the state and found that 41 percent support Gillespie while just 33 percent support Northam. Perhaps most surprisingly, the poll found that 27 percent of respondents remain undecided with Election Day less than two weeks away. That last finding alone is enough to cast doubt on the results of this poll. The huge swing in Gillespies favor is also slightly questionable,...

    In a year where coverage of President Trump has generated TV ratings, limitless controversy, and the worlds scrutiny, the November 7th Virginia governors race between former Republican National Committee Chair Ed Gillespie and Democratic Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam has been gasping for attention. That may change this week as both campaigns pull out some heavy hitters. President George W. Bush is attending two Gillespie fundraisers on Monday. President Obama is campaigning for Northam on Thursday. That, following weekend appearances by Vice President Mike Pence at a Gillespie rally and former Vice President Joe Biden at an Northam event.

Biden in Northern Virginia, and Mr. Gillespie is set to appear at an evening rally with Vice President Mike Pence in Southwest Virginia. The race is tight, according to polls, which has shown Mr. Northam, the states lieutenant governor, with a fairly consistent lead, riding strong support from voters...
