Happy Days Are Here Again...

At least they are in Virginia. In case you have not already heard, the governor's race has been called for the Republican candidate, Bob McDonnell. Actually the GOP slate did great down the ballot in Virginia. Still waiting on New Jersey, which was too close to call when I last checked.

I looked at the liberal blogs to see how they are spinning the results. I found this at Firedoglake:

...The Virginia race really looks like a case of a depressed base. Conservatives turned out at basically the same numbers as they did in 2008. The Democrats didn't turn out.
If conservatives turned out in the same numbers as 2008, isn't that actually pretty amazing considering 2008 was a historic presidential election with high turnout?

Update 8:45 p.m.: Unbelievable. The President says he is not watching the election results. Way to stand by those candidates, huh? Of course, he claimed to not know anything about the tax day tea parties either.

President Obama is not planning to watch Tuesday nights election returns, Obama aides Robert Gibbs and David Axelrod tell CNN.

Obama is more likely to watch Tuesday night's Chicago Bulls game than any political coverage, according to Axelrod.

The president's senior staff have also decided not to hold a watch party to keep an eye on election returns as they come in.

Update 9:20: The liberal take on this seems to be that the Dems were not liberal enough. Please, please, please keep thinking that. More from Firedoglake:

Even tradmed [sic] bellweather Howard Fineman is agreeing that Deeds' Blue Dog agenda hurt him badly, and that Democrats need to not go to the center to win elections; they need to fight for people. "This is as much an expression of a tepid response to the Democratic base." He's on Olbermann, so watch what he says to Andrea Mitchell tomorrow. But that's the right analysis.

Update 9:30: With 44% reporting, Christie leads Corzine 49 - 44.

Update 9:40: From earlier tonight, another "our Dems are not liberal enough" quote. This one from Kos:

2010 will be a base election. The party best able to turn out its core voters has the best chance of winning. If Democrats want to see a repeat of Virginia at the national level next year, then they should cave to Blue Dogs and the media nabobs and water down reform efforts (whether in energy, health care, financial services, or immigration).

Update 9:45: 58% reporting has Christie up 50-44 in NJ.

Update 10:15: Christie is declared the winner. (Via Tom Elia.)

Update 10:45: Been trying to post for the past 30 minutes, but the system must be overloaded. Hoffman is behind in NY-23 with the majority of the vote in, but things are closing a bit so I guess it is still possible he could pull it out. Updates here. Groan. From Watertown Daily Times: "Four precincts in St. Lawrence County are having mechanical problems and total results for the county won't be available tonight."

Update 11:15: Looks like Hoffman is not going to win in NY-23, but I don't think the final count will be in for a while due to a problem with voting machines in one precinct. The margin has been around 3 percent and doesn't appear likely to change much from that.

Christie is now coming out to Springsteen's Born To Run to make victory speech. (I don't think Springsteen will be happy about that.)

Update 8:30 am: I agree with Michelle Malkin's take on the NY-23 race.

Conservatives owe NY-23 candidate Doug Hoffman immeasurable gratitude. He overcame impossible odds (single digits just a month ago) to come within two points of defeating Democrat Bill Owens. Hoffman had zero name recognition. National Republican Party officials dumped nearly $1 million into the race on behalf of radical leftist GOP candidate Dede Scozzafava, who then turned around, endorsed Owens and siphoned off 5 percent of the vote with her name still on the ballot after she dropped out.

Fred Barnes has a good piece at Weekly Standard too.

By electing governors of Virginia and New Jersey, Republicans have demonstrated that two trends suggested in recent opinion polls are for real. The first is that Republicans have pulled off a remarkable comeback after disastrous election defeats in 2006 and 2008. The second is that they now have a realistic shot at capturing the House and gaining Senate seats in the 2010 midterm election.

The stunning success in Virginia and New Jersey was strikingly similar to Republican victories for governor in those states in 1993. Indeed, the margins of victory -- an 18-point landslide in Virginia, a narrow win in New Jersey -- were almost identical to the margins in 1993.

Those victories 16 years ago were the first clue that Republicans were on the rise after losing the White House in 1992. In 1994, Republicans won 52 seats in the House and a dozen in the Senate and took control of both bodies.

JustRuss IT1(SW) USN [reitred]:

Just so you know, i looked at voter registration data for Fulton County and it is Republican 2 to 1. They cannot even look at the paper ballots until they get all the absentee's ready so time to go to bed.

But hope is not lost,especially if any of those absentee's are military. The numbers also show us that a good 5% of "our" republican voters are idiots who didn't know Scuzzy had dropped from the race and voted for her anyway. That is a rather small number, unfotunately it would have pushed Hoffman past owens.

Great job NY republicans who picked that imposter and set up the slightest of failures. Still, that Hoffman has done so incredibly even if he lost should still send a needed message to conservative leadership to stop putting moderate or liberal candidates up!

If it turns out to be owens, congratulations to the Democrats on picking up a seat. Now lets see you "ram through" that legislation since you can no longer blame Olympe for changing her mind.

JustRuss IT1(SW) USN [reitred]:

ps Vic: Palin didn't lose and Newt was still wrong. The incredible turnout and forcing Scuzzy to drop out are the proof. The fact that those who voted for scuzzy anyway would have put Hoffman over the top is lost on you but it doesn't matter.

Democrats still wont be able to pass a bill even though they have an extra seat. Palin was proved right by the clear number of people who DID vote for owens. Newt was an idiot for backing that RINO when there was a clearly conservative candidate. He should have investigated her before rubber stamping her with his approval just because she was "hand picked" by local republican leadership (note there wasn't a primary so you can't blame the local electorate like Newt and Steele tried to do.)

The Big O!:

Well, NY-23 certainly does prove that a Democrat can still win an election as long as the Republican drops out of the race.

So I guess the Democratic strategy for 2010 will be to hope that all of the Republicans withdraw... because otherwise, the midterms are going to be an electoral bloodbath like it was tonight in NJ and VA.

Hilarious. Palin isn't president. She is not pushing a legislative agenda. This is a big deal because all those moderate Dems Obama needs to pass his legislation are going to look at Virginia and New Jersey's double digit vote swings and be scared spitless to vote for his plan. Or they will vote for it and give us additional ammo for next year.

He is the president and took time out of his schedule to campaign with great fanfare for these guys and they lost big. Anyone who doesn't see that is denying reality, but if that's what Dems want to do then great. That will just ensure greater GOP victories in 2010.

Lorie Byrd:

"Look, Palin rallied the full force of her resources into this. It's a stunning referendum against social conservatism."

What???? A conservative Republican wins top statewide office in New Jersey. A whole slate of Republicans win statewide in Virginia. In one district in NY, after the Republican candidate endorses the Democrat candidate at the last moment, the conservative only loses by 3 points. If that is a stunning referendum against social conservatism then give me more of the same every year. I'll gladly take more election nights like tonight.

I did not realize Palin had rallied the full force of her resources. You make it sound like she sold all her worldly goods and donated them to the Hoffman campaign and spent every minute of the past two weeks campaigning for Hoffman in NY .

Prior to October 22, Hoffman was at 22 percent. On October 22, Palin endorsed Hoffman and he began building support and gaining in the polls and it looks like he lost by only 3 or 4 points. I predict he starts his campaign for 2010 tomorrow and wins the seat next year. So we have one district in NY blue for the next 12 months. VA and NJ on the other hand are gonna be red for the next four years. Yeah, stunning loss for conservatives tonight.

James Cloninger:

It's kinda funny Vic et al are focusing so much on the NY23 race...yeah, Hoffman lost, not a big surprise--more suprising he was able to gain so much ground in so short of time. But Dede endorsed Owens, and that threw her supporters (mostly liberal) towards him. Plus she got her home district, which is very Democrat/Liberal heavy.

Okay, it's cool...Owens won it fair and square, and I congratulate him.

But it wasn't a blowout for the liberals there, though. And the bigger news of the day turned out to be the huge upsets with NJ and VA.

You are gloating about "a big loss for Palin"...well, I would say it's an even bigger loss for Teh One. Two very blue states going right in the gov race. Can't be a good sign for 2010.

Oh, and jp2...that whole Gay-Marriage thing in Maine...um, you realise that Teh One is also AGAINST Gay-marriage. Just thought I'd remind you of the conveniently forgotten fact. So, it's a big victory (is ours) for him.

So, Vic et al, do enjoy your small gain re: NY23. I'm sure it will comfort you somewhat against the crushing Corzine defeat.

Oh, and as Bloomberg winning NY...big surprise, liberal republican in a very liberal town winning. Colour me shocked.

as I pointed out yesterday,... (Below threshold)

as I pointed out yesterday, you cannot read anything national into NY23. You cannot go by party enrollment in upstate anymore, these areas are breaking Democrat time and again, people just aren't bothering to change their enrollment and/or the lists aren't being scrubbed of people leaving the state. this general area, all "heavily Republican" if you look at the past or the rolls, elected liberal Kirsten Gillibrand twice, elected an unknown party-line liberal Murphy over a decent conservative with excellent name recognition to replace her, voted for Obama, and now voted for Owens. it's hard to argue that an area is 'heavily Republican' when they keep voting for Democrats, isn't it? keep trying though, it's so illogical it makes me laugh. as some have noted, the only noteworthy issue in that race is that conservatives backed a conservative instead of the party-picked liberal.

read the comments yesterday, when Hoffman was reported as leading in the polls the trolls were downplaying the significance of the race - suddenly it's all key and more telling than a smackdown in the Prez' backyard and NJ actually electing a Republican who isn't just a Democrat running as a Republican. Nice consistency, guys.

Zelsdorf Ragshaft IIIz:

AB you keep the focus on NY23 as long as you can. We will see if Owens can keep that seat in the next election. However I would like to direct you limited attention to the election results in Virginia (complete sweep of the top three state offices) and New Jersey, a democratic srong hold for years. Notice anything about the results you would care to comment on. I particularly like New Jersey. Strong unionized state with plenty of acorns infesting the grounds. Must have been some squirrels about. Speaking of squirrels, how are you dealing with the rejection of your parties ability to retain govenorships in Blue states?

Dee:

The key to winning back the House and Senate in 2010 is to run good candidates who will focus on what people care about right now. McDonnell was positive and ran on fiscal issues -- people are worried about Jobs, Deficits and major structural changes to the economy with the health care bill and cap and trade. Not to say candidates should not bring up social issues like abortion but no one is really worried about Roe v. Wade right now.

People are scared and want a real plan to pull us out of the hole that started with Bush and his big entitlement programs & spending and now Obama and his huge entitlement plans. Focus on those things and we kick the hell out of the Democrats in 2010. Will make 1994 look like a minor revolt.

I think people have rejected the compassionate conservative meme along with liberal expansion of government. I say good riddance to both!

JustRuss IT1(SW) USN [reitred]:

I was reminded in an article just now of something we all need to think about. Owens is by far a better conservative candidate that Scuzzy was so the NY23 race was Win-Win for us.

Also I tend to agree that part of Hoffmans problem is that he made social issues too big a part of his campaign. Social Conservatism is a good thing but it should not be part of a campaign except in passing. Fiscal Conservatism is much more important.

That said... I still say Scuzzy's betrayal and the idiots (yes republican idiots) who still voted for her after she withdrew are the real reason Hoffman lost. The margin between them was less than what Scuzzy got in the end. There are also still all those absentee and paper ballots to be counted.

Hoffman already conceded, and no matter if the votes tip in his favor he should not force the issue now. He should instead focus on 2010.

And despite VIC and Adrien I am still proud of what Conservatism accomplished in NY despite the RINO Betrayal and the democrats coming out of the woodwork when they saw that he had a shot. Conservatism won that election even if the candidate lost.

Lorie Byrd:

I agree about the money flushed on Scozzafaza, but not with the money spent on Hoffman. He came from no where to rise in the polls enough to convince Scozzafava to drop out and in a short period of time was able to come within 4 points of winning. If he starts his campaign for 2010 today and wins the seat next year that money will have been very well spent. No flush whatsoever on the money that went to Hoffman.

How much cash did ACORN or their affiliates funnel to scuzzzi what's her name?

Better question, I saw a post election video of Bill Owens receiving a congratulatory hug from a SEIU thug wearing the traditional purple SEIU jacket, how much cash did they pour into his campaign?

And they say ACORN/WFP and SEIU don't effect elections.... pffftt.
