Last night the South won a great victory. The country as a whole, not so much, but the South did very well and won most of what it needed to. First we will tackle the race for representatives as I needn’t go too in depth.
Kentucky’s 6th district was successfully defended by the Republicans, as was districts 2, 9, and 13 in North Carolina. Republicans did lose 3 seats in Virginia, 2 in Texas, 2 seats in Florida, 1 in Oklahoma, 1 in South Carolina with another in Georgia looking like it will flip though, hurting our standing in the House. However, we have to remember this is the fate of the president’s party in midterms. Most of them were also in areas that have been reconstructed as well, so it wasn’t Southerners doing it. Nevertheless, we did pretty well defending our seats against the blue wave (which did exist). Most red districts experienced serious opposition by the Democrats, leading to anxiety in some areas.
In North Carolina’s 2nd district, the Republican candidate became so discouraged he nearly gave up but thankfully he didn’t seeing as how he did win. Percentages in other Carolinian districts also narrowed but high turnout from the native Southerners dealt with them pretty handidly although we couldn’t cope everywhere.
We didn’t do so well in this category but we not terrible. In Virginia, Tim Kaine sadly beat Corey Stewart 57 percent to 41.2 percent. In hindsight, the likelihood of Stewart winning was slim given how blue Virginia has become. Sadly Patrick Morrisey also lost to Joe Manchin in West Virginia but that isn’t as disheartening as Stewart’s loss although it was much closer with just a 3 percent spread.
In Mississippi’s special election Chris McDaniel failed to make the run-off election which means that Mississippi will not be getting its pro-Southern, pro-heritage senator it so deserves. Regardless, last night did deliver some great victories.
Chief among them was Senator Ted Cruz’s narrow win against comrade Beto O’Rourke. O’Rourke, now being called the next JFK was defeated by just a few percentage points but still failed to convince the Texan people that socialist policies and cuckoldry were the way to go. O’Rourke’s 70 million dollar campaign was not enough to turn the tide. Rejoice Texas, you surely won.
A little further east and we get to Tennessee where Marsha Blackburn left her opponent, Phil Bredesen in the dust although this was expected. In Florida Rick Scott also won, albeit narrowly, against senator Bill Nelson, helping Republicans secure their gain in the Senate
Perhaps our biggest wins were made here although the senate races were vital as well. Our largest win was in Georgia where Brian Kemp defeated the Black marxist, Stacy Abrams. He will also be replacing the current neocon governor, Nathan Deal. The polls had shown them neck and neck but by last night’s votes were counted Kemp was several points ahead, safely securing the governorship and denying Georgia its first Black woman governor (you won’t be missing her Georgia). Kemp’s ability to gain a clear majority also denied the election a run-off, securing his win.
Another major win occured in Florida where the corrupt Andrew Gillum was narrowly defeated by Ron Desantis. Gillum had taken bribes and spent city funds for his own personal use, taking a few plane trips to meet campaign donors. His entire campaign essentially revolved around racism claims towards DeSantis’ provocative statements as well as advocating destructive Bernie Sanders style policies. Florida’s decision to vote against him was a magnificient one and they, just like Georgia, won’t be regretting it.
In other news, Bill Lee mopped the floor with Karl Dean in Tennessee, getting over 58 percent of the vote while anti-immigration Greg Abott won the vote in Texas, protecting against the “progressive” Lupe Valdez who supported gay rights and the other typical things a Democrat does.
We didn’t gain more Republican governorships, but we did trade a neocon for a nationalist as well as defeat several moves against us by minorities. The South is ours, not theirs, and our voice toward that fact is showing in the gubernatorial elections.
Many amendments were voted on this go around and a lot of them were rather insignificant but a few stand out as great victories. First and foremost, Alabama passed two amendments, one allowing the display of the Ten Commandments in schools as well as an amendment against abortion, making it state policy to “recognize and support the sanctity of unborn children.” If that gets taken to the Supreme Court we could have a reversal of Roe v. Wade. West Virginia’s similar amendment is even more provocative, setting itself up to be sent to the Supreme Court. Roe v. Wade will indeed be revisited it seems.
Another great victory in the way of amendments was the success of voter ID amendments in Arkansas and North Carolina. This will help cement those laws and stop voter fraud. Unfortunately Arkansas did vote to raise its minimum wage several dollars as did Missouri. Don’t worry though, Florida banned drilling and vaping. Another small win was in North Carolina where the income tax cap was voted on to be lowered to 7 percent from 10.
We must remember that historically the parties of the president have always done poorly in midterms. We did lose a few congressional seats but not enough to warrant despair over it. Of course, looking outside the South, the picture becomes a bit darker, but not by much and if Alabama’s new abortion amendment does get taken to the Supreme Court, I must say, losing the majority in the house will have been worth it. Now with the Senate firmly in our hands, we are in position to secure even greater victories.
The media wants you to thibk this was all a horrible failure for Republicans, but really it was yet another victory even if a few disappointments happened. The South marches on I suppose.
