I'm predicting a Republcan sweep of all statewide offices in 2021.  It may be the last time in my lifetime that ever happens, but the Democrats in VA have shot themselves in the foot in ways I never dreamed possible.

If the body of Democrats had accepted Northam's apology quietly and gone onward, they would not be where they are now.  Where they are now is in the status of being a collective laughingstock.  And, on top of all of that, their own behavior was catalytic in bringing up the worst allegations; the actual sexual allegations against their Lt. Governor, Justin Fairfax.  (And they all came out AFTER Democratic pols called for Northam's resignation saying things like how Justin Fairfax was "the Governor VA needs right now".

Perhaps the Democrats have learned the wisdom of not hammering people for what they did in 1984 by the standards of 2019.  Then, again, we are a nation of slow learners, so . . .

Okay. Looking forward to Dems picking up 4-5 seats in the Senate in 2019 despite being the "a collective laughingstock"

The thing that none of the Republicans who concern-troll over the blackface stuff care about is that the VAGOP is toxic and couldn't beat a Democratic party that inadvertently tied one of its behind its back. You're talking about a party that lost a 2-1 House of Delegates majority in one election, nominated a Neo Confederate to run against Tim Kaine, and thought that running on MS-13 would win them a governorship when Trump ran an anti-immigrant campaign and lost Virginia decisively.

Anybody who is paying attention to this stuff beyond what they see in a USGD thread will realize that the vast majority of Democratic voters can separate dumb stuff that Northam did from the entire rest of the state party apparatus.

I very much doubt it. The VA GOP is well on their way to irrelevancy. They would have lost the House of Delegates in 2017 under a fair map and had it not been for an unfairly counted ballot in Newport News.

It is extremely unlikely they will retain control of either chamber of the State Legislature in November and will lose them divisively.

Yeah, the whole "elect governors of opposite party" thing is more coincidence than causation – Wyoming also had a similar pattern for longer than Virginia, if I recall correctly, but Mark Gordon pretty easily waltzed into office.

How would an all female ticket do in Virginia in 2021? Maybe McClellan-Favola-Carroll Foy? Good regional, ethnic, and age diversity. Might be able to move the state and the party beyond Northam-Fairfax-Herring.

Lee Carter for Governor, Danica Roem for Lieutenant Governor, Yasmine Taeb for Attorney General. Problem solved.

NO, if MD Dems blow that seat, they just disband as a party. even David Trone would bury Boyd Rutherford, by double digits

What are the odds we'll see Richmond, VA Mayor Levar Stoney (D) running for statewide office in 2021 ?

Likely D if Trump is president, Tilt D if a Dem is president.

More like Safe D if Trump is President and Likely D if a Democrat is President.

I think its pretty likely Stoney runs for Governor in 2021, especially with Fairfax and Herring being embroiled in their scandals.

TMAC-Stoney-Perriello or TMAC-Northam-Herring will work for a successful statewide ticket. What a beautiful piece of news — this’ll excite millions of voters across the state.

If Vogel ran, would she have any chance? She ran closer then Gillespie in 2017 and she's from NVA

The VA Lieutenant Governor is elected independent separately.

If this was any other state than VA, it’d probably be close. You know they’re going to run a loon on the Republican side

Hope T-Mac runs again. He was a successful and honest governor. Maybe they can then get rid of the silly one-term limit?

Abigail Spanberger would also be a good candidate, though I'd prefer her to keep her seat or replace Mark Warner.

I do NOT see VA removing the 1-term rule anytime soon. They seem to like the status quo up there.

On Warner: I do NOT see him giving up his US Senate seat anytime soon.

Herring's damaged because of his own blackface scandal & the VA Dems do NOT want to see him as their nominee for Governor in 2021.

If I was the VA Dems, I would distance myself from Northam, Fairfax & Herring altogether & cut ties with them as well. Got to avoid all 3 of them at all costs.

where did you get the info from that Dems don't want Herring as the nominee?

I hope Stoney runs and its very likely in my view he does if he wins reelection next year. He seems very ambitious

I knew Northam and Fairfax are dealing with scandals, but what happened with Herring? I wasn't aware of anything going on with him.

His 2021 campaign account is still open so he's running for now. He did a few interviews and has been doing the same 'racial reconciliation' tour stuff that Northam is doing. I think he has an uphill path in the primary though he's probably doomed if a women runs. Primary voters will probably want a clean break from all three in 2021.
