Media: GOP Lost 2 Governor Races in Deep Blue States Because Americans Want Illegal Immigrants …Yeah, Run with that!
Gillespie was an milquetoast Repubican who refused to campaign with Republican President Donald Trump.
Guadagno was running in a deep blue state with a very unpopular Republican president.
** Republicans won four out of four US House seats.
The liberal media this morning says Democrats won because the American people want more illegal immigration.
The Chicago Tribune reported:
Both Republican gubernatorial nominees — former Republican National Committee chairman Ed Gillespie in Virginia and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno in New Jersey — ran with a version of Trump’s nationalistic, often dark anti-illegal immigration message. And neither saw it pay off. Gillespie’s use of the strategy was particularly jarring, given he is basically the very definition of the kind of establishment Republican who has eschewed that kind of approach.
For a time, it seemed that the strategy might be helping Gillespie close the gap, but it doesn’t seem to have allowed him to close the gap much at all. And the idea that this is a way forward for the GOP in winning elections in swing states like Virginia was certainly dealt a setback.
