Was it because Dave Brat spent too much time in DC? Was Abigail Spangberger everyone’s “every mom”? Was Elaine Luria a great candidate or did Scott Taylor not establish his base? Did Barbara Comstock not “embrace” President Donald Trump?
Republicans lost Virginia big-time (see the map). From six more years of U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine to losing three congressional seats, there’s no sugarcoating that this election represented a shellacking of the current Virginia GOP mindset.
But is Virginia actually turning blue? Is there an opportunity for Republicans to regain a foothold?
Well, you’ll just have to listen!
