It’s Election Night, 2008.
The outcome of the election came down to the former-red State of Virginia. Senator Barack Obama managed to carry NOVA by more than a 10% margin which lead him to a slim win in the state.
Virginia’s Senators are Mark Warner and Jim Webb.
Obama and Warner’s coat tails cost the election of Frank Wolf in VA-10, and Keith Fimian in VA-11.
Thelma Drake in VA-2 is in a recount and has only managed to hang on because of John McCain’s strong presence in the region.
Democrats now control the state Senate, Governor’s mansion, a majority of CD’s, both Senate Seats, and are looking for ’09 to take over the House.
I particularly like the part about Judy Feder beating Frank Wolf. Nice.
