TBH, I've always liked Guadagno for some reason, but the Democrats need more Governorships.

By the way, does anyone have the Presidential results broken down by VA state districts? I would love to compare them to tonight's results, especially the 82nd district of the State House.

Trump won HD85 by 213 votes.

Trump - 17,813 (46.7%)
HRC - 17,600 (46.1%)
Other - 2,733 (7.2%)

Exactly the way I am. Pro-life from the womb to the grave.

How many Democrats here are actual social conservatives? I consider myself to be a moderate social conservative, and the only Democrat I can think of who is to the right of me on social issues is Famous Mortimer. Yes, there are a number of pro-life Democrats here, but there are plenty of pro-life Democrats and pro-choice Republicans in the real world who are not activists and not very ideological.

(raises hand)

I'm a pro-life Democrat who owns guns.

Sharon Weston Broome came to talk to one of my classes a few years ago, and I liked her. I'm glad she was elected Baton Rouge mayor.

I think HRC's margin in Iowa sort of vindicates Braley - maybe we need to reconsider if he was uniquely bad.

BUMP

Wanted to come back to this thread briefly. Jeremy Alford (well-known analyst) and Tyler Bridges (veteran state journalist) teamed up to write this really great book called Long Shot, which chronicles this race.

I've recommended it to a few others on here. They do a good job of capturing the dynamics of state politics and getting behind the major events in the campaign. I think anyone who followed this race, or likes state politics in general, would really enjoy it!

There was a similar book written about the Edwards/Duke race written by John Maginnis years ago, called Cross To Bear. Long Shot is a great follow-up.

Of course.

Again, while I like Perriello, it's just not his time and not his race.

+1

I've always liked Perriello, but I'll be volunteering for Northam.

Interestingly, he still lost Ouachita Parish in the primary (though it was very close).
21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 1998 Illinois gubernatorial election on: January 02, 2017, 09:18:28 pm
Poshard, very easily. Even though he lost, its one of my favorite Gubernatorial maps:



Its funny that Poshard got 47.47% and in the Senate race that year, Moseley-Braun got an almost identical 47.44%, but with this map:
