Both sides should learn from this but that probably wont happen.
D's - When the country is going in the wrong direction what do you expect.
R's - Distance yourself from you know who and run your own race.

2022, yes. 2024, no

Agreed. 2024 is a long time away, so much will happen in the interim, the 2022 elections, COVID fizzling out (or not), the economy, geopolitics, etc. etc.

On top of all that, 2024 outcomes depend the most on the primaries and general election, so I don't VA has much impact.

Unfortunately I have a sick feeling 2024 will be about who is running and not about the country.

100%. That's what I meant. It's still a major TBD.

So this is the top headline on MSNBC right now:

"Glenn Youngkin's victory proves white ignorance is a powerful weapon"

At least even CNN runs a more honest headline:

"Democrats misjudged the mood"

2022 Can't come soon enough!

The only question is if Biden will be as damaging to down-ticket Democrats (especially state and local) as Obama was.

My guess is probably not, if only because they have still not recovered to their pre-2010 levels, so they don't have as many seats to lose.

Anyone calling millions of voters “racist” without a shred of evidence is a jerk. Definitely disgusting, and 2022 will reflect this.

The same using CRT dog whistle to scare voters. You need to call it out no matter what side you are on.

So you have Terry’s talking point down pat. Didn’t work for him so well this time around and it won’t work in 2022. #RepublicansPounce
