    We were never going to have the Obama factor in the state races and the fact that the media said that it was in the bag for MacAuliffe probably made more Republicans hold their nose and vote for Cuccinelli.

    That we won the governorship in a historically red state and with a (crappy) candidate says volumes. Go Virginia.

    •  Actually I don't think he was a bad candidate... (2+ / 0-)

      He ran a very smart, disciplined campaign...didn't let Cooch draw him into peripheral arguments...and in Virginia where there are no limits on campaign contributions and where Repubs usually outspend us...McAuliffe's undeniable talent as a fundraiser may have put  him over the top...

      I'm not sure anyone else could have pulled it off frankly!
