Just think, in 29 Virginia the governor’s race will start becoming a memory. It is looking like at least temporarily the shutdown is helping McAuliffe’s campaign. Will it hold? Depends if the Democrats can keep Cuccinelli linked to Cruz and company.
Biggest surprise has to be how E.W. Jackson (yes, the Planned Parenthood has hurt black more than the KKK) is still competitive in his race for Lt. Governor. For someone everyone (including your’s truly) wrote off the guy is still polling well. In fact in some polls he is either tied or slightly in the lead. Considering how controversial he is, I can’t believe it is not a blowout for the Democrats.
We’ll keep an eye to see which of the 2016 GOP candidates are coming to the Old Dominion to campaign for Cuccinelli and the GOP.
