A Few Predictions for Tomorrow

Just some musings based on my feel for the election:

  1. Del. Nick Freitas will win the GOP nomination in a 4-5% squeaker.  I am afraid Bishop E W Jackson, who deserves better, will only garner about 8-10%
  2. I am afraid Cong. Barbara Comstock will win renomination but lose in November.
  3. Dan Ward will win the right to lose to Rep. Dave Brat because of his awful commercials.
  4. Cong. Scott Taylor will win in a walk over Supervisor Mary Jones who also deserves better.
  5. Ryan McAdams should win in the Fourth over Shion Fenty.
  6. I do not have a good feel for the Dems in the 1st or 2nd district.  Probably the hopeful with the most radical ads will win here too.
  7. The Matt Waters petition drive will probably fall short but I hope I am wrong about that, too.  Can still collect petitions for him:
Let me give you a quick update on where we stand. We have turned in 8,900 signatures to the Virginia Board of Elections. With a 77% validity rate, that equates to roughly 6,800 valid signatures.
As of right now, our campaign is hearing from every corner of the state — from Martinsville, Danville, Staunton, Williamsburg, Richmond, Charlottesville, Henrico, Roanoke, Tidewater, here in NOVA — and many others — all gearing up to help this campaign turn in 4,369 additional signatures!
If our validity rate holds, we will just cross the finish line and have a Libertarian candidate on the ballot in November. But we’re not finished yet, as folks like you are still on the ground today and tomorrow to support our campaign.
So you see, every single signature counts!  
As we close out the first phase of this campaign, my last, and biggest request to you, is this:
1. If you are able to do so, please collect signatures tomorrow at your local area polling station.
2. Bring your petitions to the Virginia Board of Elections in Richmond (1100 Bank Street, First Floor, Richmond VA) before they close. We will have two notaries there who will notarize your petitions. We must turn in all petitions by 7PM ET sharp.
And, here is a bonus: we are gathering together right after 7 at the Penny Lane Pub (421 E Franklin St Richmond, Virginia 23219) for spirited conversation and celebration.
I could not find a form petition for Waters on this email I just quoted from.  BUT you can go here and get a petition form and get signatures.
Any more questions?

    Corey Wins!

    Nick is a bitter loser……..The VCN network RINO Republicans won’t lift a finger for a GOP Victory November.

  4. Matt Oher says:

    Abigail Spanberger will defeat Dave Brat in November!

    That’s my prediction.

  5. Jason R. says:

    TBE staff calls Corey Stewart Voters Rednecks and worse: read it here and they wonder why they LOST? This is repugnant even by Albertson’s gutter ball standards.

  6. Trumpians says:

    Latino candidate #Never Trump Nick Freitas should run with his party in the future: The Libertarian Party.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
