State Elections Aren’t All about Trump

Alexandra DeSanctis, National Review

The GOP fared poorly in some contests last night, but that doesn’t mean red states are shifting blue. While it’s fair to assume that Virginia, at least, will be out of reach for the GOP in 2020, former swing states Ohio and Florida seem likely to go to Trump once again, and Rust Belt states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania remain in reach for Republicans. It would be foolish to deny that Trump’s polarizing presence has had no ill effect on the fate of Republican candidates in a handful of states trending blue. But it would be more foolish still to ignore the electoral gains that the GOP has made in spite of — and in some cases because of — his presidency.

It’s Conservatives Against Soros And Hollywood In Today’s Virginia Election

Virginia is only 4 seats away from becoming the next New York. We urge every CHQ reader who is eligible to vote in Virginia to go to their polling place and vote today, Tuesday, November 5th. As Morton Blackwell said, everything is on the line for those of us who are conservative in Virginia.

Yesli Vega: This Conservative Hispanic Candidate is Poised to Make a Difference

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
We conservatives have a very attractive candidate as unique as a “purple cow” running for district supervisor in Prince William County, Virginia and she needs your help.  Yesli Vega is the conservative Republican nominee running for Supervisor in the Coles District, and she is a staunch movement conservative that we can all be proud of and get behind.

For Virginia Conservatives It’s All On The Line Tomorrow

Everything is on the line in the Nov. 5th election for those of us who are conservative in Virginia. If the Left gets control of the House of Delegates and the state Senate, they're going to make fundamental changes that are intended to turn Virginia into California.  And the Right to Life and the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment are at the top of their plans to Californicate the Old Dominion.

Fairfax County, Virginia Presents Dire Warning to America

Fletch Daniels, American Thinker

My home county of Fairfax, Virginia was once a safe suburban area with some of the best performing public schools in the nation. It's now a blinking warning sign to America as it hangs on the edge of complete disaster thanks to unchecked immigration and Democrat takeover of the government. Fairfax is our country in a microcosm. What happened here is happening all over America. If we don't reverse the trends, both at the local and national level, the long-term prognosis on America is not promising. While the battle will rage on at the local level, Virginia is lost to the Democrats at the national and soon state level. Other states aren't far behind.

Why is Hollywood so interested in Virginia’s November 5th elections?

All these Far Left Hollywood liberals know what every pro-lifer knows as well. Virginia is only 4 seats away from becoming the next New York. Flipping two seats in the House of Delegates and two seats in the Senate will give total control of the General Assembly to radical pro-abortion extremists who have made no secret they are determined to strip away all of Virginia’s pro-life laws!

Scott Taylor: The Terrorist Congressman

When Rep. Scott Tayor (VA-2) screamed obscenities and threatened to "blow up" NumbersUSA he clearly brought discredit upon the House of Representatives and may have violated a number of state and federal statutes. It is time the House of Representatives investigated him for those threats.

Pro-Amnesty Virginia GOP Congressman Scott Taylor Flips Out

Virginia Congressman Scott Taylor is a classic RINO, telling his conservative constituents one thing about illegal immigration during the campaign and then voting the liberal line once he got to Washington. Getting caught by NumbersUSA caused him to totally flip-out and threaten to blow-up their headquarters.

Make Two Phone Calls To Stop Amnesty

We urge every CHQ reader to call two Congressmen – their own Representative and Virginia Congressman Scott Taylor (VA-2). The Toll-Free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044. Tell them them you oppose amnesty for any class of illegal alien and that you will oppose any Member of Congress who votes for an amnesty bill.

2016 Is Looking Like the New Normal

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

The past quarter-century, except for 2006-08, has been an era of polarized partisan parity, with one election result resembling another and more straight party ticket voting than any time since the 1950s. That's produced divided government, as Democrats have won 4 of 7 presidential elections since 1992 while Republicans have won a House majority in 10 of 12 congressional elections since 1994.

Democrats should be terrified by Virginia governor’s race

Salena Zito, New York Post

Democrat Ralph Northam should have a comfortable lead right now. But Northam’s numbers are not up — in fact, the last three public polls show next month’s race within the margin of error. That includes a Monmouth University poll released Tuesday, which gives Gillespie the edge over Northam among likely voters by 48 to 47 percent.

Why the Adams–Herring Attorney General Race in Virginia Matters

Ramesh Ponnuru, National Review

Adams’s fortunes are linked to those of Ed Gillespie, the Republican running for governor in Virginia. But in three of the last four Virginia elections, Republicans have done better in the race for attorney general than in the contest for governor. Adams might be able to win even if Gillespie does not, so long as the top of his ticket stays competitive. Gillespie is competitive, so Adams has a shot, and conservatives have a stake.

Democrats lose big in Virginia, too

Laura Vozzella and Jenna Portnoy, Washington Post

Republicans held onto the Virginia Senate in fiercely contested elections Tuesday, leaving Gov. Terry McAuliffe without legislative leverage or political momentum as he works to deliver Virginia for his friend and ally Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016.
