So we all know by now that Gillespie lost the Virginia Gubernatorial race. I had very high hopes, though it seemed impossible, considering the awful hate shown toward Trump every second of every day. I figured the association of Trump hate with most Republican candidates would overcome Gillespie, but I’m not so sure now.
I believe the fact that it was SO CLOSE says a lot for our side. Very few pundits agree with me. In a Blue state, I believe a 3 point spread, while a president’s unpopular in that state, isn’t bad at all.
And yes…Trump’s blaming Gillespie for “working hard but not embracing ME and what I STAND FOR”………”Please, God…GET HIM TO STOP!
THOUGHTS? Do you think it’s a good sign that Gillespie did as well as he did? Do you think the pundits are right and this is an indication of future elections based on Trump-hate? Or, as I think, Trump hate isn’t quite as popular as what we hear and see? (Or what I see and hear, because I don’t just listen to or read Conservative news)?
THIS MORNING, the new governor, whose campaign approved the hideous ad of Gillespie’s car running down immigrant children, then ran from it when it was seen to be so offensive and untrue, is apparently doubling down on Republican dislike for diversity!
Here’s how dumb Tim Kaine is…”The president chose to be thousands of miles away from America tonight…” Ya, Tim, this whole trip was planned around the Virginia election…just in case Gillespie lost.
