RELEASED YESTERDAY BEFORE VIRGINIA POLLS CLOSED:
The polls haven’t even closed in the Virginia gubernatorial race and the Democrat blame game has already started. Virginia Senator Mark Warner said a vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill, which is being blocked by progressives, would have helped the floundering Democrat candidate.
WARNER: “As somebody who wished we would’ve gone ahead and voted on the bipartisan infrastructure bill in September…I gotta tell you, in Virginia where we’ve got a gubernatorial race tomorrow, that would have really helped Terry McAuliffe a lot.”
Politico noted that progressives are uncharacteristically silent after Joe Manchin raised concerns about their multi trillion-dollar spending spree. Now that a Democrat defeat is a real possibility in Virginia, progressives are maneuvering to dodge blame for blocking the bipartisan infrastructure bill.
But Congressional Democrats aren’t the only ones in this blame game. Terry McAuliffe has already received his share of criticism for running a lackluster campaign while Joe Biden’s sinking approval rating will surely catch some blame. Terry McAuliffe has already noted how unpopular the president is in Virginia. And if McAuliffe ends up losing, you can bet he’s going to blame Biden.
One thing is certain: Democrats are in disarray, and the possibility of losing a state that Biden won by double digits has them on the brink of a total meltdown.
Here’s a preview of the Democrat caucus meeting tomorrow if they lose Virginia.
