A Democrat became Governor of Kentucky tonight. The incumbent Republican won by 10% four years ago and the President won the state by 30%. Only West Virginia (alas!) and 4 other states were won by the President by more.
And Democrats took the Virginia Senate and still might take the House there too. Too soon to know. If they do they will control the governorship and both houses. Rejoice. And be able to redraw the legislative districts already jerrymandered.
Kentucky and Virginia--not exactly what you think of when you think of 'Blue States'--but there nevertheless.
I'll sleep well tonight knowing our country is, in some ways, coming to its senses.
Thank you, Kentucky and Virginia.
Thank you so much.
I pray for much more awakenings around this great nation.
