  • I wonder if this means anything: A district that the Democrats won by a big margin in 2013 voted big for a Republican in a special local election on Monday.

    The Democrat in this district loudly ran in support of Obamacare. He not only lost bad, the Republican came with a hair of winning the most liberal urban areas in Norfolk City.

      I must resist getting hopeful about November. Like Charlie Brown hoping that Lucy will hold the football this one time, I’m tired of being disappointed. The Republicans just seem to have a knack for consistently screwing up a sure win.

        I think you are assuming that the Republican leadership, and thus the controllers of party campaign funds, are Republicans. The party may have been hijacked by miscreants, and the “screw-ups” could be more intentional than they seem.

        As someone said, “with Republicans like these, who needs Democrats?”
