    yea, the virginia 7th combines the (very) conservative richmond suburbs with a whole lot of rural central virginia.

    Creationists aren't necessarily anti-evolution, but some of the most infamous creationists are anti-evolution.

    Yeah, they probably haven't had a democrat since like 1970 and that's only because the realignment.

    That is some very creative gerrymandering. I wonder how much longer the Republicans will be able to count on that sheer nonsense to rig elections.

    Isn't it official Catholic belief that the universe was created by god, who also guided the evolution? In other words, the biblical creation tale recasted to fit into scientific findings.

    Americans shouldn't be allowed to define their own political districts.

    The urge to vote out the incumbent trumped party loyalty.

    I think this point form the OP cited article is telling:
    Basically a populist, more right-leaning point was made. But realistically, will that hold water in the general election? Will he be a serious politician, or an ideologue?


    Anyways, immigration reform isn't crypto-racism.


    If this is accurate, then he is definitely a theological who is into Rand, the Tea Party, and deregulation (Laissez-Faire).


    Side question: How can a theological (e.g. Christian) feel good about Ayn Rand, if she was an atheist?

    Many get so much practice supporting regressive tax policies, intolerant social positions, and (in some cases) idolizing Mammon, that overlooking the bits of Ayn Rand they don't like is effortless.

    Officially, the Catholic Church doesn't teach anything too specific on the matter, although the past few Popes have agreed that evolution is probably a thing. But C_H is protestant, so that's neither hither nor thither.

    Anyhow, yeah, surprising. I still expect the Republicans will take the district, but I doubt Brat will ever wield the same kind of influence Cantor does. I wonder what Republican Congressional leadership will look like with Cantor and quite possibly McConnell gone.
