Virginia Politics- Election results
Chad directs us to a map from Redstate. The Red and the Blue. Lets look at that map long and hard. We in SWVA had a chance to get one of our own in Richmond. We only lost in Buchanan Co. We needed a greater turnout to get past the city folk supporting Kaine. Before the left brags, they need to realize that the majority of counties supported Kilgore. Even Dickenson County and the city of Norton turned out for Kilgore. Most of these counties are Democratic strongholds that knew Kilgore was the best choice for SWVA. Bristol City had a 37% turn out...Pitiful! Terry Long had a great article in the paper that in sum said: "This is not a Republican thing or a Democratic thing..this is a SWVA thing." We had the chance and we let it pass. Would a 70% turn out of helped? We will never know.
