After losing the last two gubernatorial races, both Senate seats, and the majority in the congressional delegation over the last eight years, the Republican party has a winner in Bob McDonnell. He is a good cadidate and has run an excellent campaign. There's a lesson to be learned here. The "adults" are back in charge of the Republican party in Virginia. To get to this position they removed the vocal but ineffective wingnut elements from leadership positions in the state party organization and Bob McDonnell has wisely focused on issues important to the electorate (jobs, education, taxes) rather than a referendum on social issues (abortion, gay marriage). It certainly seems to be working.
