Conservative Republican Bob McDonnell won the governorship of Virginia today, beating out Democrat Creigh deeds by over 300,000 votes. This should come as a surprise in a state that was instrumental in voting Obama into the whitehouse.
Similarly, in the NJ gubernatorial race, moderate Republican Chris Christie took down incumbent Gov Jon Corzine (democrat). Big news for the GOP...maybe these victories will give the conservatives a much needed boost for the midterm elections. Also, these could be signs of Obama's waning support. We shall see!
