Unless something drastically changed since I went to bed, we lost the executive branch & house in Virginia yesterday.
We still have the state Senate for 2 years, so the best we can hope for is gridlock on the legislative side and challenging any dumbass executive orders in court.
McAuliffe ran a shit campaign, combined with the fact that apparently some folks can’t separate national & state politics, here we are. (This is not a slam on all the volunteers out there – this is on McAuliffe himself.)
Honestly, he didn’t deserve to win on his lousy campaign, but I sure as hell wish it hadn’t been a loss to a damn clone of 45.
Democrats need to get their shit together and stop expecting folks to just organize their way out of fascism.
