Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

The loss tonight was a big one, even though many of us predicted it. Even so, none of us expected a slaughtering like this.
The one thing that is commical is this comment section at NLS. The dems are already in majority recapture mode. I would warn GOPs that we will need to do everything in our power to defend our seats, but it still a major stretch to find 4 GOP Senators that can be beaten without a scandal or otherwise bad situation.
Either way, some things need to change in the Republican Party.

    Dear GOP Hokie, We have a tragic flaw in the Republican Party that I can't figure out. We seem to prefer nominating always the most conservative candidates even when they are the most likely to lose. In the 33rd Special up in Loudoun, we had two conservatives running, Minchew and Stanton, but the voters in that low-turnout event chose the more conservative of the two instead of the more-electable one.
