UPDATED 3/2 with a new Virginia map, given the moves by Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Mayor Pete Buttigieg to leave the race and endorse Joe Biden.
Congratulations to up-and-coming political analyst – and frequent contributor at Blue Virginia the past year or so – Chaz (or as he’s going by now, Charles) Nuttycombe, who earlier today launched CNalysis. As Nuttycombe tweeted:
“A few weeks ago I decided to take on a gamble of an endeavor: starting up a small business. I am going professionally independent in my political analysis coverage of elections in state politics, starting up an LLC. Introducing: CNalysis.“
Nuttycombe’s site is already chock full of great information, including his initial state legislative forecast – “5,048 ratings for single-member state legislative districts across the country.” Honestly, it hurts my brain to even *imagine* doing 5,048 ratings, but I’m glad someone else enjoys it and is good at it – impressive! Also, with Virginia’s presidential primary just over 30 hours away, Nuttycombe gives us his predictions: a likely Joe Biden win, with a ceiling of 10 points. Nuttycombe adds that Biden is likely to win much of Northern Virginia, Hampton Roads, the Richmond area, Southside and the Eastern Shore; with Sanders strong in western and southwestern Virginia.
