Disorganized Virginia Republicans scramble to capitalize on Democratic scandals
by David M. Drucker
 | February 09, 2019 12:05 AM



Top Virginia Republicans are scrambling to capitalize on Democratic disarray in Richmond, eyeing fresh opportunities for President Trump in 2020 but hamstrung by a rudderless state party plagued by turmoil.

Scandal is threatening to fell the top three Democrats in Virginia’s capital, Gov. Ralph Northam, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, and Attorney General Mark Herring. The tumult could cost Democrats seats in the legislature this November in the off-year elections Virginia holds, while boosting Trump’s prospects across the commonwealth. Virginia has been trending blue for more than a decade, and Republicans had presumed it off the table for 2020.

The Republican Party isn’t immediately positioned to profit from its unexpected good fortune. The GOP’s state affiliate is in shambles, and the Trump campaign, although it has time to ramp up, isn’t entrenched on the ground. That could hinder Republican gains in upcoming elections, even as a Democratic meltdown loosens what appeared to be a liberal vise grip on Virginia voters.

“The state party is in no shape to take advantage of any of this,” said John Fredericks, a conservative talk radio host in southern Virginia who was co-chairman of Trump’s 2016 campaign there. “But I’m going to make the case to the president’s 2020 team that Virginia is now a winnable state.”

What a surprise, huh?
The republicrat party has been disorganized trash for most of its existence!
Predictably, its fan club never notices as long some political hustler utters
a cliche' about family values, gun rights or the deficit.
Then its the usual brain dead rants of YEAH, YEAH!!!

The Virginia GOP ought to contact Mitt Romney, to plan for how to lose with proper dignity?

The problem is, in part too, just a lack of cohesion, not enough of them stick together.  It should be, we are Republicans and this is what we will do. It would be a bad way to run a business, though, I know, they work on some things we never hear about. We usually hear about the big things. The wall, the budget.
The USA has defeated great powers in Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan and Communism. What sometimes happens, is the worst enemy is the one within and progressivism is on the march.

The GOP needs toe "cohesion" people like Evan McMullin and Jeff Flake. They contributed so much.

Yet they will get boosts from Mitt Romney most likely.

The republicrat party was birthed by political expediency rather than principles;
namely opposition to slavery, support for centralized government and the 
promotion of aggressive trade protectionism "to protect our infant industries"
such as US Steel and Standard Oil, as schmuck McKinley asserted.

When you look up and see your enemies organizing a circular firing squad,the only intelligent thing to do is stay quiet and remain in the background and watch them kill each other off.
