February 7th, 2019 10:29 AM
It was all fun and games for Dems when Brett Kavanaugh was in the barrel.

April 30th, 2014 6:10 PM
Last November, liberal Democrat Mark Herring barely eked out a win over conservative Mark Obenshain (R) in the Virginia Attorney General race.

November 13th, 2013 1:31 PM
Once again, a liberal at MSNBC has chosen to rewrite history by pretending that Republicans are the political party with a history of denying minorities the right to vote. Appearing on her daily MSNBC show, liberal co-host Krystal Ball went on a tirade against Republicans in Virginia claiming they are the “rightful heir to the Jim Crow legacy.” Ms. Ball, who lost a landslide election…
