As polls close all across the nation many conservatives are breathing a sigh of relief and some are dancing in the streets…literally! Here in Chatham, VA at the Victory center, people are positively giddy. As the polls were reporting there were often cheers. When Fox News called the race a WIN for Hurt the crowd went nuts, chanting “Robert ‘Hurt’ – Per ri ello”.
Robert Hurt has beaten Tom Perriello 51% to 47% and Jeff Clark came in with 2% (shocker)
Congressman Elect, Robert Hurt thanked his supporters and vowed to bring “real” change to Washington DC.
In his Speech he said “I don’t believe that Americas greatest days are behind us…I think they are right in front of us”
It is not often that I must admit I was wrong. However, In this case I was. The Republican strategist from sea to shining sea stuck to a plan run stealth campaigns. The idea was to keep the Democrats home. The ole “If you don’t fire up the Hornets they will usually leave you alone” theory. I disagreed with this strategy openly. I don’t disagree with the Tea Party doing the opposite though.
Congratulations to Robert Hurt.
