Well, Virginians did not take the bait of negative campaigning – they rejected Republican Kilgore and elected Kaine (52% to 46%). Yea! I can breath a bit easier. Hopefully that will make future politicians think twice about negative campaigning. Unfortunately the democrat Leslie Byrne did not have as good luck with her bid for Lt Governer (lost 51% to 49%). And the jury is still out for Attorney General (50% to 50%).
So none of the wins were a huge victory…let’s hope that they get the message that we need to find a common middle ground…(but I will say I am glad that it is a Dem in the top position!)
So now I just need to find out why Virginia has a one consecutive term limit for our governor…I would have loved to have kept Warner for another 4 years.
