DC is shook….
Additionally, Republican candidate Winsome Sears has won as Lieutenant Governor becoming the first black woman to win a state-wide race; and Republican Jason Miyares appears to have won his race for Attorney General. The Virginia House of Delegates is still a toss-up, with a very good possibility to flip to Republican control.
In New Jersey, Republican candidate for Governor, Jack Ciattarelli, is also in the lead; however, we all know what can happen in a close race with the overnight ‘absentee and mail-in ballot’ counting process.
Before I start, here’s the caveat. With Fairfax County in the middle of their vote-manufacturing plan, it’s possible that they could reverse the will of the people in Virginia just as they did during the 2020 election. But enough news outlets have called Virginia that we’re confident Republicans swept the major elections in the state even if Democrats will try to steal it all overnight.
Virginians showed up in force to give Republicans the win in all three statewide races. Glenn Youngkin will be the next Governor, Winsome Sears will be the next Lt. Governor, and Jason Miyares will be the next Attorney General. Sears’ victory is historic as she becomes the first Black woman to win a statewide election in Virginia as well as the first female Lt. Governor in the state.
Meanwhile, by 9pm Eastern, none of mainstream media has called the race. It’s reminiscent of the 2020 election when close races that leaned towards Joe Biden were called early while close races for Donald Trump weren’t called until much later, giving the cheaters enough time to steal the election without anyone in mainstream media being too embarrassed.
This time, it seems like Terry McAuliffe was simply too McAwful for even the cheaters to fix it.
Much of the credit is being given to Youngkin’s stance on education, or to be more accurate, McAuliffe’s unpopular stance. In the last days ahead of the election, McAuliffe’s team tried to distance him from Critical Race Theory and school board control over education, but the damage was done by his early bearhug embrace of both.
Liz Wheeler posted, “This is what happens when the left tries to turn kids into transgender racists & tells parents to mind their own business or be called domestic terrorists. YOU LOSE, MARXISTS.’
Christopher Rufo posted, “Glenn Youngkin made critical race theory the closing argument to his campaign and dominated in blue Virginia. We are building the most sophisticated political movement in America—and we have just begun.”
On top of the education issues, McAuliffe was also thrown into scandal after scandal, including the ridiculous attempt by the Lincoln Project to paint Youngkin as a racist.
This appears to be a crystal clear referendum against both statewide and national Democrats. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris traveled to Virginia to campaign for McAuliffe to no avail. And even as mainstream media tried their best to prop him up, the radical agenda of the left continued to shine through.
Is this a bellwether for the 2022 midterm elections? Is Virginia starting the “red wave” that should be sweeping across the nation right now? We will see. In the meantime, Republicans should enjoy this victory.
After he initially made it sound like he would be riding out a painful election loss at home with his family on Tuesday night, Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s campaign suddenly announced he was en route to his campaign’s Election Night party to deliver remarks some 90 minutes after the race was called by Decision Desk and Townhall.
“We’ve still got a lot of votes to count because every single Virginian deserves to have their vote counted,” a defiant Terry McAuliffe said claiming he’s been holding seven to ten events per day for the last 328 days. Omitted from his remarks were the multiple rallies — including one in Virginia Beach — he pulled out of in the final stretch of the campaign.
McAuliffe thanked his family, campaign staff, and volunteers before saying “let’s count all these votes.” He then ticked off a list of priorities including “a woman’s right to choose” and “quality affordable healthcare” of which he promised he would continue “that fight tonight and every day going forward,” despite the race being called against him.
On Tuesday evening as Virginia election results poured in and predictions of a McAuliffe victory from the mainstream media, President Biden, and virtually every Democrat fell apart in less than 90 minutes, it became clear the Democrat contender had seen the writing on the wall already.
It was reported roughly 30 minutes after polls closed across the Commonwealth that Terry McAuliffe had sent a “note” to his supporters to let them know that he wouldn’t even appear at his own campaign’s Election Night event. According to CNN’s likely reluctant reporting, his cowardly missive to those who’d supported his candidacy said, in part:
“It’s official — this race is over. The last polls in Virginia have closed, and now we wait for all the votes to be counted…
“No matter what happens tonight, I am blown away by what this grassroots team has been able to accomplish…
“So when the results of this election come in — win or lose — we can rest assured that we did everything we can to create the future that we want.”
Seemingly unwilling to face his own supporters after running a dishonest campaign that failed to make a convincing case to Virginia’s voters, McAuliffe was at home. Not at his campaign’s event to thank his financial benefactors, volunteers, or those who put their lives aside to work on his campaign.
It’s unsurprising for McAuliffe — a Clinton lackey — that he would start off the night by taking a page out of fellow loser Hillary Clinton’s Election Night playbook. After all, in 2016, Hillary Clinton also left her supporters and the media of the world waiting at New York City’s Javits Center for hours as Donald Trump’s victory became apparent.
Then, after being in hiding for more than three hours, McAuliffe announced he would in fact speak Tuesday night in remarks slated to begin shortly after 10:00 p.m.
