Watch the Va race tues

I think it will give an indication of how things will go in 16. There are 2 districts in the outer Richmond suburbs that may tilt the state senate to a tie and take control from the GOP. Chesterfield and western henrico have been GOP strong holds but the area has become less rural and demographics are changing. There's a growing asian and mid eastern culture that is majority dem. Also dems in Virginia are running on gun reform for the 1st time since I can remember.
I have no doubt dems can win if they can turnout the minority vote. Let's see what happens. Terry McAuliffe also a close Clinton ally is our governor. He won inspite of the meme that everyone hates Clinton and he is unapologetic about being a dem. Call him 3rd way if you want. But sincerely with all due respect, get over it. Under mcaullife he has used executive order to reverse the prior gop governors attack on state health dept regs to further limt abortion care and he is a strong supporter of gun reform.
We elected McAuliffe so lets see if dems can hold together.
The election is Tuesday Virginia turn out the vote.
