Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said his prediction in the Virginia governor’s race came true on Wednesday when Republican Ken Cuccinelli lost to Democrat Terry McAuliffe. In Virginia, Limbaugh argued, “the GOP simply didn’t want a Tea Party candidate winning there.”

“They just didn’t,” he said. “Because they could’ve won that race, folks. I mean, it’s really a shame. I was gonna say stunning, but it really isn’t stunning.”…

…“Despite laws in Virginia that allow for unlimited financial contributions and complete coordination between the campaigns and outside groups, the RGA tried to run a different campaign than their own candidate – a puzzling strategy that made both the Cuccinelli campaign and the RGA less effective,” the memo stated.

Cuccinelli strategist Chris La Civita is lamenting how national Republican groups didn’t spend much money on the race in the final days.

“There are a lot of questions people are going to be asking and that is, was leaving Cuccinelli alone in the first week of October a smart move?” he said. “We were on our own.”

NBC’s Chuck Todd also reported that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — who won re-election Tuesday night and who is popular among independents and moderates — refused to campaign for Cuccinelli…


Nine Reasons Virginia DOESN’T Mean the Tea Party is Dead


GOP tops Democrats in total votes

Republicans and Democrats may have split the two big prizes on the political map in Tuesday’s elections, but in terms of overall votes in New Jersey and Virginia, the GOP came out on top.

Powered by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s huge victory in New Jersey, the two Republican gubernatorial candidates won a combined 2.2 million…

…It could be that these voters’ anxiety about the economy and their future trumped the Democrats’ appeals on social issues. It could also be, however, that not having been around for the first Obama election, they don’t know what all the fuss was about.

Their vote is definitely up for grabs.

…don’t blame the GOP as much as the big money donors, the Chamber, etc.  And the Tea party people.  Where was their $$$$?  After the rollout, everyone had a chance to pile on and win that race.  They were slow to act and lost it.  Figure it out Republicans.  Good lord you’re supposed to be the smart ones….

Rand Paul: Can you believe that certain people who shall remain nameless used Sandy relief funds for campaign commercials? 

Alternate headline: “GOP primary campaign officially under way.” New Jersey got $60 billion of federal funds for Sandy relief, $25 million of which went to a “Stronger than the Storm” tourism campaign that showcased a certain gubernatorial candidate and his family. Here’s Rand Paul celebrating that candidate’s victory last night by basically accusing him of corruption. Not the first time he’s smacked Christie over Sandy funding, either…

…Paul wasn’t the only tea partier who needled him today either. After jabbing at Ted Cruz yesterday, here’s what Christie got back. Exit quotation:

Cruz offered tepid praise for Christie, who cruised to a second term Tuesday night, but suggested that conservatives are craving a leader who will not back down or compromise.

“I think it is terrific that he is brash, that he is outspoken, and that he won his race,” Cruz told ABC News in the Capitol today. “But I think we need more leaders in Washington with the courage to stand for principle. And in particular, Obamacare is not working.”

Asked whether Christie is a true conservative, Cruz walked away….
