I guess Reince Priebus can feel which way the wind blows. Rather take the metro over the Potomac to Virginia, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is going up I-95 to spend some the day in New Jersey.
Gee, way to send a subtle message about where you think the good news is going to be on Tuesday night. I am sure the Cuccinelli family appreciates the free knife you just put in their back.
You can’t really blame the guy. If I had a choice between a blow out victory party with all the Springsteen one can handle or a defeat that will turn into angry finger pointing before the night’s over, I would probably go to Jersey as well.
The reality is that a Virginia loss, especially if it’s a sweep, will outshine the GOP win in New Jersey. Christie is a personality who has crafted his own appeal. The Virginia ticket was exactly what the activist base wanted. Their getting refuted by voters say a great deal more than a unique persona beating an underfunded opponent. Hopefully, someone will call Priebus out on that point.
