Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A democrat wins an election by one vote. That one vote is subsequently made void.

A republican then makes a draw and pulls the republican's name from the hat.

Man, they don't even try to hide it

keep to the Fen Causeway

No, they don't. Not in Virginia. VA is the state DKos hacks have imagined is a "blue" state. It needs an old fashion Sunstein nudge though.
Federal Judge Asked to Call Special Election for Virginia House Seat
The eventual victor in the race to represent state House District 28, Republican Robert Thomas Jr., won by only 82 votes.... The filing of the complaint sparked a series of legal challenges and a recount that reduced Thomas's margin of victory to just 73 votes.

With margins this thin and acrimony that deep, J. Reb's opposition needs to fatten their MANDATE of comfort before this year's mid-term. Frankly, either colonize more black-senior-citizens-who-vote or disenfranchise at least 1,000 registered "not-Hispanic" voters of any other race or ethnicity. Maybe both, because attitudes in VA28, VA 94, and all the districts must change before institutions do.

Otherwise, the Trumpians will win.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
