Trumpism Rejected In New Jersey and Virginia

Posted by Zamir Ben Etzioni on November 7, 2017


trump supported candidates in New Jersey and Virginia were soundly trounced by the Democrats in the Governor and Lt. Governor races.

In what is seen as a repudiation of trump, overwhelming numbers of Americans turned out to the polls and gave a loud “No” to the divisive and strange policies of trump.

From AP:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Voters in Virginia and New Jersey gave Democratic gubernatorial candidates large victories Tuesday and sent a clear message of rebuke to Republican President Donald Trump.

In Virginia’s hard-fought contest, Democratic Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam defeated Republican Ed Gillespie. In New Jersey, front-running Democrat Phil Murphy overcame Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno to succeed unpopular GOP Gov. Chris Christie.

Democrats swept all three of Virginia’s statewide races, including contests for attorney general and lieutenant governor. Several incumbent state House Republicans also lost their seats.

The wins in Virginia and New Jersey are a morale boost to Democrats who had so far been unable to channel anti-Trump energy into success at the ballot box in a major election this year.
