The Sky Is Falling for Democrats

After now-Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin shocked the political world with his victory over Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe last night, all arrows point to a monster 2022 election cycle for Republicans. Democrats are absolutely crushed by the loss in Virginia.

In Florida, the special election to replace the late-Rep. Alcee Hastings (D) will be between Republican Jason Mariner and the winner of the Democratic primary race, either Broward Commissioner Dale Holness or Businesswoman Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick.

Holness and Cheriflus -McCormick are deadlocked and headed to a recount. Holness told The Floridian that he was confident that the bulk of uncounted Absentee Ballots still not counted would go his way. So far, he has been right.

The first batch from the 900 or so Holness claims have not been counted came in and barely swung the lead back to him. READ MORE
