Yes, it's hard not to feel a little sorry for the voters of Virginia.

Virginia result ought to be mildly troubling for both parties, I think. The reasons are obvious enough for the Republicans (yet another winnable race has been pissed away due to the nomination of a fruitcake. This has become a structural problem rather than an occasional embarrassment), but the narrow margin given that and the general bad publicity for the Republicans of late should concern Democrats with regards to next year (even if a certain degree of that can be put down to McAwful being McAwful).

Well, McAuliffe is a really bad candidate as well. 

Yes. Thus only slightly ominous, rather than 'oh sh[inks]t'.

Looks like Lhota is winning Staten Island lol.

Maybe they can start up that secession movement again...

On the current trends, the Republicans will be down to 2 seats in the City Council (both from the Island, of course).

They do seem to have a chance of making it three; district 48 is very close and they were leading earlier.

District 48 is still tight, but the margin is up a tad: D 47.7, R 43.8. 21% in.

District 32 is also close: D 51.9, R 48.1 (40% in).

But that's it for contests. A couple where the leading candidate is under 60% though:

District 19 is D 56.8, R 43.2, and district 30 is D 56.1, R 43.9.

There are still 3 Republicans in the NY City Council. In addition to the two Islanders, Ulrich survived in Queens. So, only one pick-up for the Dems. Still, 48:3 is a decent performance for them Smiley

Though district 48 turned out to be not close at all in the end: D 55.1, R 39.1. You Russians are crazy.
