Update: 8PM Eastern Time Nov 3rd, 2009.
The election results are slowly starting to come in.
According to polls at Real Clear Politics, Virginia had the Republican candidate ahead by 10-15 points. Now Virginia board of elections has just released their unofficial results with the Republican candidate 21 points ahead. Lets see how well my prediction holds.
Within important races in NJ and Virginia conservative candidates did extremely well - better than the polls predicted.
Obviously NY23 was disappointing, but Hoffman should be credited with his tremendous effort to take on corrupt party bosses and disingenuous political candidates. Just by running to oppose Scozzafava, he gained us a victory on many levels:
1. The eventual winner of this race is more conservative than Scozzafava.
2. We have been saved from another disgrace like Snow.
3. The conservative movement has been validated as a formidable power in this country.
I will post more of my thoughts on this race later.
