    This header – “2018 VA GOP U.S. Senate candidate E.W. Jackson” is situated above McAuliffe’s tweets. . .

    I LOVED watching Steve Kornacki’s “board of rage” last night as Jones’ vote count grew and took the lead! Happy 25th Anniversary to the Jones’ and Kudos to Alabamians for doing the right thing. Sweet Home Alabama!!!

    A candidate with such a horrifically terrible history as a judge, misogynist, racist, homophobe, militarist, theocratist, and alleged sexual predator was overwhelmingly favored by WHITE voters in AL because he is WHITE…despite all those flagrant disqualifiers !!??!? Unbelievable.
    “No racism to see here, folks, just keep moving”

    My countrymen/women disgust me far too frequently.

  • Or he could just stay in Alabama. LOL

    Roughly 30 point swing from 2016 presidential to 2017 special election. I estimate 20 points from national anti-Trump/anti-Republican mood. Plus 10 points due to horrible candidate Roy Moore. I expect 20 point swings across the country in mid-terms.
