I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Virginia Senate: Warner Wins Easily

This one was no surprise at all:

Democrat Mark R. Warner decisively won his Senate race in Virginia against Republican James S. Gilmore III today, giving Senate Democrats one of the crucial seats they sought in their bid to tighten their grip on Congress.

In a contest between former Virginia governors, Warner cruised to victory to take the seat being vacated by Republican Sen. John W. Warner (no relation), who is retiring.

The victory came as Congressional Democrats, banking on heavy voter turnout and the coattails of the party’s presidential ticket, looked to consolidate their control of the House and Senate today as voters cast ballots across the nation.

No word on the Presidential race in Virginia yet.
