The 2013 Elections
Let’s start with the easiest. New York City Former Deputy Mayor and Republican Joe Lhota is running for New York City mayor and is losing by a landslide by recent polls. Hopefully this will convince the Leftists to stay home and allow Republicans, Independents, and reasonable Democrats to get out their vote and be heard. Unfortunately it still may not be enough for Rudy’s heir | Read More »
Actually, The RNC Invested Heavily In Cuccinelli’s Campaign
The conservative and moderate wings of the Republican Party seemed poised for all-out war, but in Virginia; the RNC has actually tried to help Republican Ken Cuccinelli defeat sleaze bag Terry McAuliffe in the gubernatorial race. Virginia has been something of a working laboratory for the RNC in testing new models to win elections. If Cuccinelli loses tomorrow, it’s because he ran a soporific, if not abysmal, | Read More »

Ken Cuccinelli helpfully reminds Virginia that Barack Obama & Terry McAuliffe are allies. #obamacare.
This is, of course, a parody of Barack Obama’s actual remarks about Terry McAuliffe. You can tell because surely Barack Obama would not be stupid enough to praise Obamacare – and McAuliffe’s intention to actually drag the state further into its clutches – two days before the Virginia gubernatorial election. There are limits to idiocy. There have to be. Anyway, a taste:
Why Unions Are Pouring Money Into Virginia & Why You Should Care
Union bosses and other out-of-state liberals–from Hollywood to New York–are pouring millions into the Virginia governor’s race.
They are, without a doubt, hell-bent on defeating Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and putting long-time Democratic party boss and fund-raiser Terry McAuliffe into the governor’s seat.
More than that, however, the Left may be using the governor’s race to put the final nail in the coffin for Republicans in a state that has swung from reliably red to almost blue.

Charles C.W. Cooke eviscerates phony libertarian Virginia governor candidate Robert Sarvis.
Come, I will conceal nothing from you: while I am friendly to a lot of libertarian ideas, I am not hard-shelled about it. I am no Lsyander Spooner or Benjamin Tucker. But I do know enough about the subject to know that, say, I was name-dropping some of the old-time thinkers there that the modern anarcho-capitalists like. In other words: I at least know what | Read More »
Cuccinelli Closing In on McAuliffe
I’ve been struggling to find good news in the Virginia Governor’s race and there is finally a bit. Cuccinelli has closed the gap with McAuliffe and is only 4 points behind now, even with the third party candidate at 9%. Hallelujah. Ken is a good friend and I’ve been both dearly worried about him and deeply disappointed in a bunch of Republicans who’ve decided to | Read More »
Facing Reality: Terry McAuliffe Will Be Virginia’s Next Governor
For conservatives, Republicans, and fellow defenders of freedom, it’s time to face reality; Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, will be our next governor. No, I’m not referring to the Rasmussen poll, which had McAuliffe up by an absurd seventeen points; Rasmussen hasn’t been the most accurate gauge in VA politics, but the Quinnipiac poll has Terry with a strong seven point lead. In fact, most polls show McAuliffe leading | Read More »

Much Ado About Nothing: Christie vs. Cuccinelli
As Election Day 2013 approaches, there are only two races of interest to the political pundit class- the gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia (with all apologies to the New York City mayoral race). The outcomes, despite the winners, will be analyzed and pulled apart and parsed because they are the only two games in town this year. Already, articles are appearing in the | Read More »
Final Virginia Gubernatorial Debate tonight at 7 PM Eastern.
You can watch it here. While you’re waiting, check out this campaign ad from Fight For Tomorrow: Two weeks, folks. And Ken Cuccinelli could use your help. Moe Lane (crosspost)
Cuccinelli: Unions Will Expect Payback from McAuliffe Administration
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to discuss his race for Governor, what a Democrat controlled Virginia might look like and the need for an Obamacare delay.

The State of the race in Virginia
Normally at Unlikely Voter I’ll look at individual polls, synthesize them into the trend, and go from there. But I’ve been behind, so we’re just going to recap all the recent polling in Virginia and go from there.
Long story short, Terry McAuliffe is ahead, and looks to be the beneficiary of trends entirely out of control of either himself or of Ken Cuccinelli.

Did Terry McAuliffe allow GreenTech to keep on fundraising, using his name?
Man, the Washington Post is really setting itself up for some severe criticism when they finally end up endorsing Terry McAuliffe. It’s like they’re providing us with all the information we need to discredit said endorsement ahead of time: …Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe (D), is listed in a recent confidential memorandum to prospective investors as GreenTech Automotive’s “chairman emeritus.” The 70-page document includes photographs | Read More »
The Washington Post has a real problem with… Terry McAuliffe’s performance at the NVTC.
This is a remarkably vicious article from the Washington Post… which is to say, it only attacked the Republican candidate for Virginia governor once and even then waited until about the sixteenth paragraph to do it. Apparently, the Post did not like Terry McAuliffe’s performance at the Northern Virginia Technology Council, particularly when compared to Ken Cuccinelli’s; and that disapproval seems to have slopped over | Read More »
Quinnipac predicts unprecedented Libertarian surge in Virginia governor’s race!
Well, that would have to be the alternative explanation to what’s apparently happening, which is that the governor’s race is tightening in Virginia again. Cuccinelli/McAuliffe went from 42/48 in August’s Q-Poll to 41/44 now. The poll indicates McAuliffe, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, at 44% among likely commonwealth voters, with Cuccinelli at 41%. The three point margin for McAuliffe, who lost a | Read More »
