    We need to remember that.

    I was watching CNN though and the narrative was that it was a good night for the Repubs.

    I need to remember to trust my gut on these elections though. Deep down, I had a sinking feeling this would be within a few thousand votes. I thought it would be more like 30,000.

      .....that the Democratic vote in Virginia always comes in in a final flourish.  Doesn't surprise me at all that CNN got it wrong in the early and mid-evening based on the numbers we were seeing.  When I saw Chesapeake was going for T-Mac, I knew McAuliffe still had to be holding strong for a decisive statewide victory.  Three points is still closer than I expected though.

        I always know that the dem vote in VA always comes in late, especially at the very end (usually from Fairfax and Norfolk.)

        Once I saw Chesapeake go Dem though, I knew McAuliffe won.
