Out of the money

The electoral wave can build when one side recedes from the field.
Like the Democrats in Northern Virginia's 10th district.
The sum of the DCCC’s cancellation in Virginia’s 10th District was $2.8 million, according to the source. Democrats were on the offensive in the open-seat race to replace retiring Rep. Frank R. Wolf, R-Va.

Cantor deported

It will take days to digest this result - Rep. Eric Cantor lost his primary battle.
Money can't buy happiness - or a primary victory.

The tweet wasn't sweet

Twitchy highlights a tweet send out on Senator Mark Warner's feed - which was deleted after 26 seconds.
But that wasn't fast enough.
Maybe if the Senator and his staff spent more time shoveling the walk and less with bad tweets.

End of the McDonnell disaster

NRO's Jim Geraghty bids farewell to Bob McDonnell's troubled tenure.
We’ve become blasé about governors and presidents inviting donors to stay in their mansions or the Lincoln Bedroom. But the Commonwealth of Virginia does not provide its governor a mansion so that he can help donors sell their products.

What Cuccineli did right

Bearing Drift continues to offer lessons from the past election.
If your lesson is "blame Cuccinelli," it might not help next time.
I’m sure you’re ready to ask me why, if Ken got so much right, he still lost.  My answer to that is simple:  I don’t think anybody on our side could have won this year.  Not Bolling, not McDonnell, not George Allen, not anybody else we could have nominated.   Think about it this way – the Democrats nominated their weakest gubernatorial candidate in pretty much forever and he still won.  There was something more than just campaign tactics at work here against us.

Understanding the election

Bearing Drift features a lengthy list of reasons and myths on the past election.
And leaves some fine parting words.
Be bold.  Stand up for what you believe.  Don’t worry about what the left says.  Never defend.  Always attack.  Keep control of the agenda.  Save your money for the end.
