A red wave is coming
Vice President Kamala Harris finally got something half right when she recently said on the campaign trail in Norfolk that “what happens in Virginia will in large part determine what happens in 2022, 2024, and on.” Indeed, Ms. Harris was spot on in her assessment about the importance of the elections in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the outcome was crystal clear. Republicans won the races for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General while also picking up seven seats in the House of Delegates on their way to capturing a 52 – 48 seat majority.
The brutal reality for Democrats today is that the ultimate takeaway from the 2021 elections is that throughout many regions of the country, in constituencies of all shapes, sizes and demographics, Republicans carried the day with common sense, America first, anti-critical race theory, pro-law and order, low tax, pro-competency message. Amid the Biden-caused crises and socialist insanity swirling around us, it’s no surprise that it worked like a charm.
In addition to the cataclysmic event for Democrats in Virginia, cable news banners stating that the governor’s race in deep-blue New Jersey is still “too close to call” – days after the fact – is inflicting damage that will be long felt on the left. Even if incumbent Democrat Governor Phil Murphy narrowly escapes a humiliating defeat by a few thousand votes, this overarching narrative will have already taken hold: People are disgusted with what President Joe Biden and the Democrats have done over the past ten months, and these election results make clear that President Donald J. Trump was right when he declared, “America will never be a socialist country.”
