No means no.
From the White House to school boards across America, voters yelled at Democrats on Tuesday, “No!” at reckless spending, nosy bureaucrats, hugs for criminals, racial fetishism in classrooms and beyond, rising energy prices, a monthly average of 179,779 illegal aliens invading the southern “border” under the eye of President Joe Biden, and much more other.
More concisely, voters for the Democrats: Dead.
The biggest prize on Tuesday, of course, was Virginia, where first-time candidate Republican Glenn Youngkin soundly defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe, the last Commonwealth governor, by 50.9 percent to 48.4 percent. .
“Racism still works in Virginia,” yelled the former governor of Vermont. Howard Dean, a Democrat, via Twitter. Atlantic’s Jemele Hill said, “This country just loves white supremacy.”
Evidently, the same white supremists who elected Youngkin also chose Republican Winsome Sears as lieutenant governor. She is a black veteran of the Marine Corps of Jamaican descent. They also elected Republican Jason Miyares, a Hispanic, as the next attorney general. Bonus: The Virginia House of Delegates turned Democrat into Republican.
According to the exit polls, Youngkin won 13% of blacks (against 10% of Donald Trump in 2020) and 55% of Hispanics (against 36% of Trump in 2020).
In New Jersey, Republican Jack Ciattarelli led Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy with 61 stunning votes early Wednesday morning. The race stands at 50.8% of Ciattarelli against 48.5% of Murphy, with the Republican who has not conceded between cards not yet counted and reported anomalies in the county of Bergen. Whatever happens, a former member of the GOP state assembly shouldn’t have come so close to a Democratic governor of a state that Biden won by 16 points.
Democrat Steve Sweeney, chairman of the Garden State Senate since 2010, switched to Ed Durr, a Republican trucker and newcomer. Sweeney spent $ 490,726. Durr’s campaign was only $ 153. Final score: Sweeney 48.2%, Durr 51.8%.
In New York, Republicans will increase their city council from three, possibly to six. On nearby Long Island, Republicans will become Nassau County executives and Nassau and Suffolk County District Attorneys.
Across the state, liberal proposals to include illegal aliens in district reorganization, enforce same-day voter registration, and expand absentee voting without apology all went up in smoke.
In another GOP act of white nationalism, Hispanic Republican John Lujan won a Texas State House special election in a 78% Hispanic district near San Antonio that Biden scored by 14 points. The Lujan platform: border security.
In Minneapolis, the cradle of the “defund the police” movement, one of the ugliest children on the left was strangled in his crib. An electoral measure to “reimagine” the 70% Democratic city police force in a delicate Public Security Department crashed and burned – 57% “no”, 43% “yes”.
In Democratic-clogged Seattle, voters choose GOP candidate for law and order Ann Davison as the city’s attorney for the first time in 32 years.
New York-based Ryan Girdusky, founder of the 1776 Project PAC, focused on school boards, where social justice warriors traced the leftist indoctrination of American children. It raised $ 135,000 and funneled digital ads, mailers, and basic campaign materials across seven states. Among Girdusky’s 58 conservative candidates, 44 prevailed, achieving a powerful 76% win rate.
If the Democrats were smart, they would remember that HillaryCare and other left-wing excesses cost them the House in 1994. President Bill Clinton “triangulated”, drove sharply into the center, and helped House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga ., to reduce capital gains taxes and reform welfare.
Alas, too many Democrats are stupid. House spokesperson Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Appears determined to push Biden’s $ 1.75 trillion (for Penn Wharton: $3.98 trillion) Build Back Better Tax increase, welfare and bureaucracy behemoth. She and other socialists argue that the Democrats were accused on Tuesday of not being leftist enough. Will Pelosi and her party know each other or will they continue to torture the American people?
Stumping for McAuliffe in Norfolk, Vice President Kamala Harris said, “What happens in Virginia, in large part, will determine what happens in 2022, 2024 and beyond.” It would be wise for the Democrats to reimagine last week’s battle cry as a warning.
