Republicans experienced some big gains and big losses in Tuesday night’s election, including the complete and total loss of Virginia where the GOP has maintained control for two decades.

However, the Republican Party did manage to keep total control over Mississippi.

Here’s more on the election night results from The Daily Wire:

“The Democratic Party won control of the Virginia General Assembly on Tuesday, giving the party total control of the Old Dominion’s state government for the first time since 1994,” The Hill reports. “Democratic candidates outpaced Republican incumbents and nominees in the three most populous regions of the state, picking up seats in Hampton Roads, Richmond and the surrounding suburbs, and the fast-growing Washington suburbs.”

In the Virginia Senate, Democrats have won at least 21 out of the 40 seats, wresting control of the chamber from the Republicans. The same story played out in the House of Delegates, where the Democrats now control at least 53 of the 100 seats, likewise flipping the chamber.

With a Democrat, embattled though he may be, in the Executive Mansion, the Democrats now have complete control of the state.

“Democrats had a significant fund-raising advantage in Tuesday’s races, while Republicans had hoped to hold on to suburban seats that have sent its lawmakers to Richmond for decades,” The New York Times reports. In a follow-up analysis, the Times notes that Virginia “is the only Southern state the president lost in 2016, and Republicans faced a series of difficult races in metropolitan districts.”

Republican Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves took Democratic Attorney General Jim Hood to the woodshed in the contest over who would replace outgoing Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant. The GOP now has the governor’s mansion, the house, and the senate in the state.

President Trump took to Twitter Tuesday evening to congratulate Reeves on his victory saying, “Congratulations to [Tate Reeves] on winning Governor of the Great State of Mississippi. Our big Rally on Friday night moved the numbers from a tie to a big WIN. Great reaction under pressure Tate!”

Sanders Takes Big Double-Digit Lead In Brand New National Poll, While Biden Falls Apart And Bloomberg Rises

Published

on

Bernie Sanders is enjoying a massive boost in the polls thanks to a solid showing at the Iowa caucuses and his victory in New Hampshire, but what’s good news for the Vermont senator is not so hot for original favored candidate former Vice President Joe Biden who continues to crumble. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, however, is also enjoying a major surge in the polls. This just goes to show you that politics are totally unpredictable, as everyone sort of assumed the nominee would, without a doubt, be Joe Biden. The landscape continues to shift. Here’s more from Fox News: Sanders garnered 32 percent support in the ABC News/Washington Post poll, followed by Biden at 17 percent and Bloomberg at 14 percent. Sanders has been boosted by a win in the Vermont primary and at least a top-two finish in the yet-to-be-called Iowa caucuses, while Biden is still counting on his South Carolina firewall to hold after middling finishes in both states. The trio is trailed by Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren at 11 percent, the only other candidate reaching double-digits in the poll. https://twitter.com/ABCPolitics/status/1230089763090259969 The ABC News/Washington Post poll follows another national poll released Tuesday by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist which had Bloomberg in second place behind Sanders and Biden in third. That poll put Bloomberg over the top of the Democratic National Committee’s threshold to participate in Wednesday’s debate in Las Vegas ahead of the Nevada caucuses. Bloomberg, whose 14 percent total in Wednesday’s poll is up from 8 percent in January, has seemed to poach moderate Democrats from Biden’s camp with his huge advertising budget, spending upwards of $400 million so far. He is not competing in any of the first four primary states — campaigning instead in delegate-rich Super Tuesday states while the other candidates toiled away…

Bloomberg News Ex-Reporter’s Wife Claims Bloomberg’s Lawyers Threatened Family Over China Reporting

More and more evidence comes out about Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg every day that proves this man might not be a very good fit for the highest office in the land. There have been numerous racist and sexist comments that have come out about Bloomberg, not to mention his statements about how elderly cancer patients should be denied treatment and left to die so those resources go to younger patients. Apparently, according to the wife of a former Bloomberg News reporter, Michael Bloomberg threatened to “ruin” her family financially if she ever spoke out about how the publication killed a story that was critical of Chinese leadership in the Communist Party. Here’s more from Fox News: Leta Hong Fincher, whose husband, Michael Forsythe, now writes for the New York Times, wrote that the former New York City mayor threatened to “devastate” her family if she jeopardized his financial ties to China. “My story shows the lengths that the Bloomberg machine will go to in order to avoid offending Beijing,” Fincher began an editorial for The Intercept. Fincher first explained that her husband wrote a Bloomberg News article connecting the dots between Chinese President Xi Jinping’s family’s vast and sudden accumulation of wealth and him assuming office. Immediately, her husband began to receive death threats by a woman who told him she represented a relative of Xi. The woman specifically conveyed threats to Forsythe’s entire family, consisting of his wife, a 6-year-old and an 8-year-old at the time. Bloomberg News urged the family not to say anything. Back in October of 2012, Fincher posted a tweet about the death threats she got after the story on Xi went live. A few hours later, a manager for Bloomberg phoned her husband said, “Get your wife to delete her tweets.” Fincher refused…
