There’s plenty to read about the Democrats’ retaining the governorship in Virginia by electing yet another Clintonista in Virginia. I just want to make one quick point.
Many in the media are calling the holding action a referendum on Trump. Is it? Or is it yet another indication that people are moving?
One of the largest single indicators for how much a county has recovered from the recession is whether it contains a state capitol or is adjacent to Washington, DC. Just about every indication is that the DC suburbs held the governor’s chair for the Democrats.
Be careful of reading too much into it. It may not be a formula for national victory.
