You have no clue what happened here in Virginia. Virginia is NOT a “Blue” State.”
The Virginia House of Delegates has been in Republican Control since 2000 with elections every 2 years. Before this last election the Republicans held a 66-34 advantage. Let that sink in, 66-34 advantage.

After this election the current makeup is 49 Democrats to 48 Republicans with 3 races still too close to call. This means if even 1 of those 3 votes goes to the Democrats the Republicans will have lost A 32 SEAT ADVANTAGE!!!!!

There is no other way to “spin” that. The Republicans got their asses handed to them.
Thanks from imaginethat, skews13 and Camelot

Virginia is an increasingly Blue State. Did Trump win in Virginia, did Romney?

In 2015, the last House of Delegates election (just two years ago) the Republicans won a 32 seat advantage. The two years before that? A 67 seat Republican majority. Two years before that? 66 seat Republican majority.

In over 100 years (since 1901) there has never been a flip of this magnitude. The closest is when in 1999 when Republicans won a 52 seat majority and then 2 years later extended that to a 64 seat majority.

But NEVER has a majority flipped this big in one election.
Thanks from imaginethat, RNG and Camelot

You and the asshole who thanked you for the stupid ass obvious lie you posted TWICE can fuck yourselves. I know there are people here you can bait by doing stupid shit like that. I'm not interested.


That is not very nice.

I still think you just need that nice weekend on an island.

A state where Republicans have controlled the state House of Representatives for the last 16 years?

And, again, IF the Democrats take control of the House it will be the single largest change of party control in at least the last 100 years!
