Human Events

In 2008, for the first time since 1964, Virginia was carried by a Democratic presidential candidate. Many commentators heralded the vote for Obama as a historic shift, marking Virginia as a “blue” state.

This year, Virginia elects its governor, and most polls show Bob McDonnell, the Republican, with a clear lead. What changed?

Through Obama's first nine months, Virginians, and indeed all Americans, have had an opportunity to really see and understand the hyper-liberal Obama program. This year's election in Virginia is a referendum on that program.
