The fallout in Virginia

Leaving the wake that was supposed to be the Republican victory party in Richmond last night, I asked my colleague Shaun Kenney his thoughts on what the election results might mean for Virginia’s political class. We came up with some rough ideas, but one thing is clear to me: the Romney loss in Virginia, coupled with the Allen Senate loss, means that the Republican Advance being held in Virginia Beach at the end of the month will be absolutely fascinating.

That idea solidified for me as Scott Lee and I were leaving the Omni Hotel. On our way out, we ran into Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.

He was smiling.
