Less than five days to go in the Commonwealth of Virginia and former Attorney General and State Delegate Bob McDonnell is pulling away and in place to reclaim the Governor’s office for Republicans. When looking at the other major statewide races that will be voted on November 3rd, Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling and Attorney General candidate Ken Cuccinelli are pulling away from their challengers as the possibility of an impressive GOP victory in the Commonwealth of Old Dominion awaits.
A new SurveyUSA poll released earlier this week showed that hardly any of McDonnell’s nineteen point lead from last week has softened. Democratic-laden Public Policy Polling this week shows McDonnell up plus 15 over Creigh Deeds in which has concurred with other polls in the month of October showing McDonnell with double-digit leads and having the momentum going into the last five days. In the SurveyUSA poll, not just McDonnell, but Bolling and Cuccinelli have impressive double-digit leads over their Democrat challengers going into the home stretch. As a note, Virginia elects Governor and Lt. Governor on separate tickets for the general election in which its different from other states that may put the Governor and Lt. Governor as a team.
A win for Virginia Republicans is going to set the standard for conservative candidates in 2010. The Virginia standard from this year’s election is something conservatives can expect in critical states like Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada, and Minnesota in which can play a huge role in forming the next conservative resurgence for America.
