The half-cent sales tax hike to fund transportation in Northern Virginia failed, which surpised me even though Virginia is historically a low-tax state. But I saw very, very few ads to defeat the initiative, and it failed anyway.
Ehrlic's victory in the Maryland governor's race is just amazing given the 2-1 advantage Democrats have there. Glad to see we can forget about Townsend's Scary-Looking Gun initiative.
On the other hand, antigunner Ed Rendell won the governor's race in Pennsylvania. It's unlikely he'll be able to pass new gun controls in this environment, but I guess we can forget about having reciprocal concealed carry rights between that state and Virginia.
