When the Republican House Majority Leader's former Chief-of-Staff endorses a Democrat, you know good times are happening in our sister Confederate state, the Commonwealth of Virginia where a Democrat Governor will most likely take the helm in short order.

"Republican Heads Explode as GOP Strategist Endorses Democrat Terry McAuliffe" by Sarah Jones, 9/20/13

"Imagine a Republican who has advised Virginia Republicans for over 30 years saying,“Terry is the clear choice for mainstream conservatives.” Those words came from Boyd Marcus in a statement released Tuesday. Cue the Republican heads exploding.

Boyd Marcus, who is a prominent Republican strategist currently serving as an adviser to Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) of Virginia, endorsed Democrat Terry McAuliffe for the Virginia gubernatorial election over scandal-adjacent extremist andnational joke state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R).

Mr. Marcus will be advising McAuliffe for the remainder of the election. In a statement released by the McAuliffe campaign, Boyd Marcus said:

“I’ve never before supported any Democrat, but this election Terry is the clear choice for mainstream conservatives. I am excited to work with him to grow the already-long list of prominent Republican leaders who are supporting his campaign. Virginia is facing tremendous economic headwinds and we need a governor who is going to work with both parties.”

The Richmond Times Dispatch noted that Boyd is not alone. Other Republicans backing the Democrat, Terry McAuliffe,“include former Northern Virginia legislators John Chichester, Vincent F. Callahan, Jim Dillard and Russ Potts.”

Boyd has a long record of serving Republicans, including serving as Eric Cantor’s Chief-of-Staff.

When Southern Republicans have to go the Democrat for a “mainstream” fiscal conservative, you know there’s trouble in the GOP. Cuccinelli was warned by Republican donors to put a sock in the extremism, but he was too busy accusing Planned Parenthood of being racists to listen. He also insisted on sharing his fear of oral sex with the world. The business community called him out on his failure to be mainstream, as Republican women fled his ticket. Now this."

Hopefully Georgia won't be too far behind Virginia in returning to its senses too.

Good story. Virginia's a great state. It'll be better when Democrats are fully in charge. There is a similar type story from out west somewhere. But no question, the more you learn about Republican policies, the less likely you'll ever vote for them. I'll post it if I see it again.

My daughter resides in Virginia. She acknowledged when I asked her about Republican Ken Cuccinelli that he was indeed a true nutcase, anti-women and everything else. Good riddance her and I say, bring on the Democrats.

My daughter in Richmond sent me this today --

"Democrat Terry McAuliffe has a 48-42 percent lead over Republican State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli in the race to become Virginia's next governor, according to today's Quinnipiac University poll, the first survey in this race among voters likely to vote in the November election."

Thanks,

Real Americans don't cozy up to crazy. And that's what Republican Cuccinelli is and is known for.

Ken wants to make oral sex between consenting adults illegal and a felony which is good. So see, he can think outside the box.

You know, just a minute ago I just posted on another Topix link that once you understand what the Republican Party stands for and what they intend to do to America, well there's really not much to like.

This would be a good example of a Republican idea. To a Republican. And a nutcase. But not to the overwhelming majority of Americans. But Republicans don't care. They put and try to put these extreme laws in place all over America. And don't they then stand up and spout off about "too damn much government interference" in our lives? Hypocrites. All of them. Dangerous too. Don't ever give them your vote. We've all had enough.

And the democrats have done such a super job...!!
Lemme see;
Millions of lost jobs.
Millions more of welfare.
Deficit had tripled.
Americans butchered in Benghazi and the democrats only concern is covering it up.
Constant lying..
A health care law that the majority of the public doesn't want.
Come on....try to think whats best for the nation NOt party poltics.
You people are so narrow minded its unreal..

Actually it's got nothing to do with demographics. Republican Attorney General Cuccinelli II plans and policies are just too extreme for most everybody in the state no matter the party. He is by all accounts a nutcase of epic proportions who would not be reelected to his current job. There are less than 2 months until the election so I guess anything could still happen in this important Southern state race. Stay tuned as the say!
