McAuliffe - Cuccinelli - Virginia Governors Race

Democrat – Terry McAuliffe and Conservative Republican Ken Cuccinelli

Sixteen months ago, mustering support from tea party activists and Christian conservatives, the attorney general of Virginia, Ken Cuccinelli’s,  backers forced a convention, instead of a primary.   This worked around the establishment control and wrestled the nomination away from establishment favorite Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling.

Bolling was the chosen “next-in-line” favorite guy of every Republican party insider.  Upon losing the nomination, Bolling did what all establishment Republicans do when they are defeated, Bolling refused to endorse Cuccinelli.   Joining him were numerous establishment Republican mayors and numerous former Republican legislators.

The GOP establishment machine decided to do what they do best, burn down the house rather than give up the keys upon ideological eviction.

TruthinAdvertising_Rinos

According to a Washington Post review of finance records, about two-thirds of former Republican Gov. Robert F. McDonnell’s top donors in 2009 have given Cuccinelli no support; this was not coincidental.

Again, according to the Washington Post review:  Four years ago, McDonnell’s largest single donor other than Republican Party organizations was the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which spent $973,000 on his campaign. This year, the chamber gave Cuccinelli nothing.  

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is entrenched with the GOP Establishment.  They are fully vested in traditional Republican candidates; and a symbiotic relationship exists between K-Street Chamber Lobby and the Insider Republican machine.

This Establishment Republican decision led to a massive disparity in spending as Democrat candidate McAuliffe raised over $35 million, and Cuccinelli less than $18 million.    McAuliffe has taken full advantage of this difference by running an aggressively negative campaign outspending Cuccinelli 10 to 1 on TV advertising alone.

Almost all of it negative.

Yet even with the drags on Cuccinelli’s campaign by a current Republican Governor mired in a scandal, and despite the blistering spending disparity and the establishment sitting on the sidelines waiting for a “see, you need us better” collapse, the polls are showing Democrat candidate McAuliffe’s lead smaller by the day;  so today’s outcome is by no means certain.

But make no mistake about it, if Cucinelli does lose – the Decepticons, the Republican Establishment, will use his defeat throughout the entire 2014 election as ammunition to claim their grip on power is the only option to stop liberal advancement.

    I would love to see Cuccinelli win to send message to DC but also to shake the world of MSM. I would love to listen to them explaining how that happened. I want to see “a whole lot of shaking going on”. I do believe this is more than an election for a governor .. it’s also the first step in the war for the America’s political future. (I believe there is some spiritual warfare going on too).

  4. The MSM is touting this election as “How goes Virginia, so goes the country…” but I’m not convinced of that. Virginia has a large area that is a “bedroom community” for D.C. and has had a serious influx of liberals in recent years including immigrants and Hispanics. I certainly hope that Cuccinelli wins today but I will not be disheartened if he doesn’t. Virginia has always been a conservative state and yet it titled for Obama in the last 2 elections.

    I find the acts and behavior of our establishment Republicans abhorrent. It’s bad enough we have to battle the liberals with their media control and Hollywood elite backing, but now we have infighting between our own base. It is definitely time for a viable 3rd party to emerge.

    BEWARE of Wolves in Sheep’s clothing telling you things about the Virginia governor race that are not necessarily true!

    Since it is likely that Terry “What investments?” McAuliffe will win, the Democrats and the State-Controlled Media have offered this as a “referendum on ObamaCare”.

    I ask, how can this be any sort of referendum? A huge number of government bureaucrats living in Virginia will be voting and are protected from the ravages of ObamaCare, because they have exempt, gold-plated healthcare plans. They are voting as their unions tell them, which will be for MacAuliffe. They essentially don’t have a dog in the ObamaCare fight, except as it extends to creating more and more well-paid co-workers, on which they will all have seniority.

    Referendum on ObamaCare my a**. It’s a referendum on D.C. largesse versus the rest of Virginia.

      “I am new here, but I have an extensive history on Discus if anyone wonders. I live in Kentucky which is a small state so we know each other. I know many of you do not have the same advantage in assessing the KY Senate race in 2014. From what I hear, real constitutional conservatives in Kentucky are all struggling on this race — we really need an entirely new candidate. Bevin is in because Bevin has a personal fortune. That’s it. http://mycn2.com/politics/matt-bevin-s-challenge-to-mcconnell-game-changer-or-exhibition-game

      There is no choice at this point in the election cycle: Mitch McConnell is miserable, the ditzy Dem is the daughter of a former state Dem chair convicted of a felony who catered the 2012 Obama inauguration, and Bevin is most likely a shill. He is not a natural born conservative and has trouble speaking the language if caught off guard. He’s saying all the right things, but so did Scott Brown, Marco Rubio, Kelly Ayotte, etc. I very much wanted an alternative to the disaster that is Mitch but then there’s this: Constitution Day (remember that, I said CONSTITUTION Day) debate at the University of Kentucky just 2 weeks ago. Jesse Benton, married to Ron Paul’s granddaughter and previous campaign manager for Rand Paul, is standing in for McConnell who is in DC. Jesse asks Bevin a quiz question on a section of the Constitution Mark Levin has thrust into the news in The Liberty Amendments.

    • I certainly hope so, Susan. It’s past time that a viable 3rd Party emerges to replace what USED to be the Republican Party. The Republican Party is nothing more than a more moderate offshoot of the Democratic Party these days. The establishment Republicans are MUCH more concerned with their cushy D.C. jobs (or state level) than with preserving our Constitution and defending our rights to freedom. The Dems/Progs/Libs etc. have succeeded in “cowing” them and convincing them that they cannot win on a platform of morality and constitutional conservatism. Morality is NOT dead in this country…yet. But it is dying a slow death and unless we get some men with the fortitude to fight against the evil that is pervasive in our society we will be lost. GOD blessed this country and guided our founders in making it what it was and, with God’s Grace, we can rise again from the ruins of sin and corruption. It will take bravery, perseverance and moral fortitude. It will take hard work, sweat and boots on the ground. Somehow the conservative base in the country MUST have a voice and find a way to form a cohesive bond that will empower us and our candidates.

      Now we are having the fight establishment Republican D.C. politicians who are willing to sell their souls for another term in office. They are willing to blackmail, blacklist, smear denigrate and lay ruin to anyone who DARES stand up to them. Sound familiar?

  22. With 31.5% of votes counted Cuccinelli is leading by almost 10% points. PRAYING this trend continues. The only northern county reporting so far is Alexandria and it went heavily for the Dem. We know that the northern counties will swing for McAuliffe so let’s pray that the rest of the state votes heavily for Cuccinelli. It must be extremely frustrating to live in VA as a conservative these days and watch a few bedroom counties, full of D.C. insiders, swing your state from Red to Blue.

    • Interestingly, with approx. 15% of the votes in Alexandria, McAuliffe is winning handily, but in Loudoun and Prince George counties they are neck in neck. These are Blue/D.C. counties.

      From the VA Board of Election, with 45% of precincts reporting, Cuccinelli is winning by 7.5% pts. McAuliffe is closing the gap but Cuccinelli is holding strong. I’m very anxious about this race. If McAuliffe wins the Dems are going to use this to further corrode the morale of the conservative base. All of the MSM is touting this as a referendum on how the elections will swing in the upcoming mid-terms. They will use a McAuliffe win to dishearten conservatives. We cannot afford to have a single one “give up” the fight.

    .4 % or 6,700 is not enough of a clear vote. In circumstances like this, the third party which got the least amount should be removed, and then a re-casting of ballots occur, for truer representation of what the people want. Technically and in scientific probability, McAul cannot consider this a win. There should be no celebration much like there should have been no celebration for Lame Obama in Senator (Illinois) winning when he eliminated candidates by counting petitions.

    Before Obamacare kicked in, McAuliffe had a 20 point lead. After Obamacare, it shrank to 1.5

    Early voting may have played a role: early voting took place before insurance cancellation notices were sent out due to Obamacare and early voting took place during the Shutdown with MSM blaming GOP.

      Good point. 1.5% is practically insignificant in key weather vane state Virginia. Tea Party is the not the old establishment. It is learning. It has energy. It has leaders like Ted Cruz, Cuccinelli, Mike Lee and growing, just like Tex Mom’s video above. We really should send that around to everyone to feel inspired and stronger in circumstances brief defeat.

    This is why I so much want to move back out of New Jersey (I left once, only to move back due to family concerns and a homesick ex-wife), and to a freer, more independent state like Indiana (or, at a minimum, south-central or northern Pennsylvania). No “feel sorry for me” in either place, a private-property line is still countenanced by the kids growing up in the area, and daddy’s place for talking (and living) his politics is in the home or the town hall, and not the bar.

    Cuccinelli would probably have won were it not for the Libertarian candidate (backed by Democrat money). McAuliffe won with less than 50% of the vote, I believe.

        Yup, he won 55% to 45%. I am praying for his wisdom, and cooperation among the various parties – the Emergency Manager (Kevyn Orr), the Governor (Rick Snyder), and the new City Council members. I haven’t seen the results of the City Council election, but I believe this is the first election governed by the new city charter, which requires all but two of the members to live in the district they represent. The other two are “at large”.

          Glad to hear Detroit has a new mayor, a former medical center chief. He actually has management skills and experience! Prayers for Duggan and Detroit. Sometimes it takes learning the hard way for people to finally get it. Even then, it is with reluctance. No one in the Obama fiasco will be celebrating that they were wrong but we know, that they know, that we know, and God will be the final equalizer on the Democrat (and RINO) machinery and purposefully foolhardy voters.
