Red Wave Coming? GOP Sweeps Election in Virginia Democratic Stronghold

Tall Timbers

Imperfect but forgiven
With the November general election less than six months away, results of local and special elections are giving an eye-opening preview of possible voter behavior. While recent polls still show Democratic hopefuls, including presumed presidential nominee Joe Biden, edging out their Republican counterparts in competitive parts of the country, actual ballots are telling a very different story.

Special congressional elections in California and Wisconsin this month both yielded Republican victors after Democrats launched strong campaigns in both races. In California, Republican Mike Garcia beat Democrat Christy Smith by almost 10 points after receiving 10,000 fewer votes in the primary election just two months earlier. Garcia replaced Democrat Katie Hill, who resigned at the end of 2019, flipping a California House seat from blue to red for the first time in more than 20 years.

As stunning as Garcia's resounding victory for Republicans in California was, however, a shocking GOP blowout in the Staunton, Virginia city council election this week has given Democrats a reason to be alarmed.

Like many cities in Virginia through the last several years, Staunton has trended toward liberal candidates in national and municipal elections, supporting Barack Obama in both the 2008 and 2012 elections, and Hillary Clinton in 2016. The city also helped buoy Democratic governors Terry McAuliffe and Ralph Northam to victory in the past two gubernatorial elections while consistently electing a majority of Democrats to the city council.

Following the 2019 'Blue Wave' in Virginia legislature elections, however, residents of Staunton, which is supported in large part by private liberal arts college Mary Baldwin, came out in droves to support Republicans this week. Three Democratic council members lost to their Republican challengers in an unprecedented sweep by the GOP with a voter turn out that smashed previous election cycles.

It seems that collectively, voters are fickle... Hopefully we see a Red Tsunami this November. As far as polls go, we know that most all of those have proven meaningless as they're tweaked to provide the results desired by the pollsters.

It makes sense, the mindset that God gives the planet up to will be seething with contempt at the time God allows for their day.

They love the darkness and HATE the Light cause their deeds are evil.

So the Light must really be hitting a nerve at the time We The Church are called home.

it’s awesome to see freedom resisting tyranny and I’m so praying for all the churches opening May 31 in California.

I hope so. We need to have a red wave here in Northern Virginia. The whole thing is blue and I for one am not happy.
