Election night open thread - Democratic blowout!
I was relatively confident coming into tonight. I've reached a place of equanimity, with occasional side-trips to despair. I thought we'd retain the Virginia governorship.
What I wasn't expecting was the complete whupping Democrats handed Republicans. Not only is Governor-elect Ralph Northam looking to outperform President Obama's +8 in 2008, but Democrats are on the verge of retaking the Virginia House of Delegates. Turnout is massive, breaking any gerrymandering attempts. This is the kind of turnout we need on the federal level in 2018.
Savor this night. Relish it. Then get back to work. We have a world to save.
And deplorables: We're coming for you.
Like what you read? Chip in, keep us going.
