Couldn’t have happened to nicer tyrants, either.

VCDL-PAC endorsed Republican Senator Dick Black beat anti-gun Democrat Jill McCabe by 5%. Bloomberg poured a million dollars into that race to defeat Senator Black because of Senator Black’s strong pro-gun voting record.

Republican Senate-canididate Glen Sturtevant Jr. beat anti-gun Daniel Gecker by 3%. The Gecker campaign received over a million dollars from Bloomberg and ran anti-gun ads day after day. Sturtevant’s refusal to fill out the VCDL survey hurt his campaign with grassroots gun owners. What saved him was that all the anti-gun Gecker ads backfired, alarming many grassroots gun owners enough to vote for Sturtevant just to keep Gecker out of power.

Bloomberg’s only win was in the Parrish and McPike race, where Parrish lost by 8%. Neither Parrish nor McPike returned the VCDL survey.


GOVERNOR MCAULIFFE LOSES THE SENATE HE WANTED SOOOOO BADLY

The anti-gun Democrat Senate leadership stays out of power as the Republicans managed to retain their bare 21 to 19 majority. Two Democrats out of the nineteen will probably vote with us from time-to-time, which will help in getting the majority needed to pass some pro-gun bills.

The failure to take control of the Senate puts a major kink in Bloomberg and McAuliffe’s anti-gun plans for Virginia.

In the House, the Republicans have a bare SUPER-majority - 66 to 34. A few of the House Democrats might vote with us occasionally on pro-gun bills.

The VCDL-PAC had 27 wins, 17 losses, for a 61% success rate this election cycle.


POSSIBLE RECOUNTS

There will possibly be one or two recounts because of some super-tight races in the House. From VCDL’s point of view, the results will not be significant, regardless of how they go.

A wave of change is all over the planet.
Today in my home country the corrupt prime minister finally resigned, under pressure of tens of thousands of people on the street. And 90% of those are young people.
Looks like elites are losing. Keep up the pressure!

Yes.
The prime minister was accused of corruptions and made weekly visits to what is called here district attorney, for inquiries. He will most likely will be sent to trial and hopefully jail. Yet he refused to resign, until today. Cockroaches are cockroaches everywhere.
But I see the young generation awakening (I did not put a lot of faith in it until recently). And that is a good sign.

Virginia's only hope not to stay pretty much permanently blue in the Governor's mansion would be a drastic reduction in the federal workforce in DC resulting in a mass exodus of bureaucrats from NOVA.
