Open Thread

“It might not mean much, but it’s worth noting that of all putative ’08 presidentials, only VA Gov. Mark Warner (D) helped bring a winner home on Tuesday,” Hotline On Call observes.

“In VA, Sen. George Allen (R) campaigned for GOP gov nominee Jerry Kilgore, who lost. Ex-NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) made ads for NJ GOP Gov nominee Doug Forrester, who fell short. AZ Sen. John McCain (R) traveled to nearby CA and made ads for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s initiatives, all of which went down in defeat. NY Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) campaigned for NYC Dem mayoral candidate Freddie Ferrer, who was trounced by GOP Mayor Mike Bloomberg.”

“Warner, of course, made ads and campaigned frequently in VA with Dem gov nominee Tim Kaine, who won.”

Open thread. Thoughts, everyone?


  1. GAWire says:

    The liberal media and Dems WANT this year’s elections to be a foreshadowing of what ’06 and ’08 will be; however, there is no logical explanation why two or three off-year elections will have anything to do with national voting results in 1 or 2 years, regardless of what regions or states were in play this year.

    This story will be gone soon.

  2. GAWire says:

    One more thing: Dems are acting like these off-year elections are like the GOP sweep in ’94. Think again . . .

  3. Silence says:

    I’m in total agreement with you there, GW, they act like we did back in 2002 when we took Ga’s government back.

  4. Erick says:

    In 2001, after September 11, Dems won in VA and New Jersey and the media likewise hailed it as a defeat for Bush. But then 2002 kind of screwed up that theory.
