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.

Wow

I did not expect the night to go like this.
Walter Stosch and Emmett Hanger won their races, but by much closer margins than I expected.
Trisha Stall defeated Marty Williams, which wasn't 100% unexpected, but still wasn't predicted by very many.

The biggest upset of the night goes to Ralph Smith. I don't know of anyone who predicted that he would win, especially since turnout was reasonable. His staff and campaign should be commended on their unbelievable job.

Now we must all circle the wagons and take on the dems in November. The Senate is gonna be very tough to defend.
