    I had a feeling the election was going to be a lot closer than some of those polls.  There had been over two weeks of extremely bad press about Obamacare, and the lead was quickly eroding.  McAuliffe had a lot of ad money, but you know what - with video streaming a lot of people don't see any of those ads.  I didn't.  Another thing is that we have had a number of very close statewide elections in Virginia over the last 20 years or so.  We have seen the Republican base turn out, and they have seen the Democratic base turn out, in election after election.  We know them and they know us.
