    This is a Republican-Republican race. It's one race in an off-off year. Half of it was disgust with Jindal.

    Even so.

    The headlines about this November were all about a Republican Governor being RE-elected in a blue state.

    The tendency -- and this is an off-off year with damn few elections -- was somewhat blue. Okay, NYC was only a restoration of the status quo. Bloomberg was the exception. but several small cities went from Republican to Democratic, and the first Virginia Governor to win in the same party as the sitting president in 40 years came in in a Democratic apparent sweep in Virginia.

    We are definitely not home safe yet, but we are looking like we're ahead.
