My optimism in previous articles is warranted by the Virginia elections. I have sounded the alarm on what not to let happen to America but have always remained very positive on the future of our country, despite what the country has been through under Biden’s first year installed in the White House.
Many were ready to throw in the towel and felt defeated, with great reason. At times I found myself doubting if we’d ever come back from the power grab the left was enjoying after the Covid crisis, Big Tech dominance, Critical Race Theory taking over our schools, and the Biden regime itself.
Friends, the tide has turned and we are rounding the corner and it only took one year after the nonsense that took place on November 3, 2020. What we saw on November 2, 2021, should show everyone the light at the end of this dark tunnel called the Biden presidency.
Blue Virginia just went red in all statewide races after Biden carried the state 54%-44% in 2020. Republican Glenn Youngkin defeated Democrat Terry McAullife as Virginians rejected CRT and the radical left agenda. A Fox News Exit poll shows that Hispanics broke for Youngkin 55%-44% which spells major trouble for the Democratic party. The last time the state had a Republican governor was in 2009. Since Virginia has term limits and only allows a governor to serve 4 years, Youngkin will not be up for re-election in 2025. But hopefully this is the start of a trend in Virginia for many election cycles to come.
The state also elected the first female lieutenant governor and the first woman of color to win statewide office in Virginia, Republican Winsome Sears.
The other Republican elected at the statewide level Jason Miyares, who is the first Latino Attorney General in the state’s history. So is it White Supremacy that got the first Black and first Latino elected to statewide offices in Virginia?
Republicans also took control of the House of Delegates with a 52-48 majority.
In Georgetown, South Carolina Carol Jayroe defeated incumbent Brendon Barber to become the first female and Republican Mayor in the city’s history.
This comes as an NBC poll shows voters give the nod to Republicans on a number of issues.
That’s not all. There were a number of School Board races throughout the country and voters rejected mask mandates on kids and put in people who are anti-CRT. You can check out the thread of victories here. To name a few. Carroll ISD in Southlake, TX, which is very close to where I live, elected the anti-CRT candidate Andrew Yeager to School Board in a landslide victory winning 65% of the vote.
In Douglas County, Colorado four conservative candidates all won by over 10% in their races. The group of four called themselves “Kids First”. They were endorsed by the 1776 Project PAC, a committee that is a response to the racist 1619 Project. They elect candidates who promote patriotism and want to abolish Critical Race Theory.
In Ankeny County, Iowa. Three Republican candidates were elected to the School Board, two which oppose a mask mandate on kids.
It gets better. In my home state of Texas Republican John Lujan won a runoff election in HD 118 in the San Antonio area, 51%-49%, flipping the district from blue to red.
Minneapolis voters rejected a measure that would have dissolved the police department.
This article from the Washington Examiner sums up great takeaways from the elections on November 2nd.
This is just the beginning of what will be the taking back of our country, which has been spit on and disrespected by the left. We the people have had enough. Even if it means elected fair-minded Democrats who respect the Constitution and want law and order on our streets.
Don’t get complacent, everyone needs to act to ensure a complete rejection of the far-left radical agenda in 2022 and 2024. We will save America from the ground up.
Also, great job by Republicans on watching the polls and being proactive, we learned a hard lesson from 2020.
