Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

We have a new poll for the Virginia Republican primary race for Governor from The Washington Post and George Mason University Schar School that has Ed Gillespie still doubling his nearest opponent.

Election Night Thread – Georgia CD 06

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

So apparently the leading Democratic candidate in this Special Election doesn’t even live in this district that he is hoping to represent, a fact he is not ashamed for people to know.

The two questions to be answered tonight is whether Jon Ossoff can get to 50% and if not, who will be the Republican facing off against him in a runoff election. Will Republicans have answered Donald Trump’s call?

The results from the Associated Press can be found here. Polls close at 7pm EDT.
