This Looks Like a Day for the Ds
Over at The Corner, John Miller predicts a near clean sweep for the Democrats:
"Later this morning, I'll be going out to vote for Jerry Kilgore, the Republican running for governor in Virginia; alas, I suspect that Democrat Tim Kaine will be holding a victory party tonight. Down ticket, Bolling (R) will win the race for LG and, in what may be a minor upset, Deeds (D) will win AG. In New Jersey, Jon Corzine (D) will beat Doug Forrester (R), with Forrester not breaking 45 percent. The four California propositions that Arnold Schwarzenegger and everybody else are watching closely, nos. 74, 75, 76, and 77, will all lose. The New York mayor's race was over before it started: Bloomberg (R, sort of) will win re-election. And in a city close to my own heart, I'm anticipating a small piece of good news: In the mayoral race, Freman Hendrix (D) will oust incumbent Kwame Kilpatrick (D), a man with a wonderfully alliterative melting-pot name but also a fellow who has cared more about taxpayer-funded private parties than improving a city that still needs a lot of help. Bottom line: This looks like a day for the Ds."
Perhaps it's for the best. Kilgore's plan for "Virginia is for Advocates of the Death Penalty" t-shirts just doesn't have the same ring as "Lovers." And in a bit of shameless self-promotion, my own take on the NJ/VA races here.
