…but there are limits to what can be done with no budget and no staff. Won’t be the first time, and it won’t be the last. I will admit to being surprised at the Libertarian turnout; I think that it’s the best they’ve done in my lifetime. Which I am sure will comfort them when the two state parties take their revenge in the next few years*.
The good news is that we’re still on-track to get the AG spot in a squeaker, and the House of Delegates is staying firmly in control of the GOP, which pretty much means that Terry McAuliffe is on-track to be limited to whatever he skim off of the top of the budget. The even better news? It’s proving to be difficult for people to pretend that McAuliffe’s double-digit collapse in two weeks wasn’t directly related to Obamacare, and most of the pundits aren’t even trying**. There are some slightly nervous Democratic strategists right now wondering how soon they hit the floor on Obamacare.
*The Virginia Democratic and Republican parties feel that they have a good thing going, here.
**Mind you, McAuliffe will have to console himself with being Governor of Virginia.
