Kaine to be VA governor
Election results are in, and my candidate lost. I’m not as disappointed as I would be normally, as I think Kaine will be okay. I had a very difficult time this election deciding who to vote for, since on many issues Kaine and Kilgore were similar. I usually vote Republican, but Kilgore’s negative campaign ads were just awful. I agonized for weeks, and even yesterday I changed my mind three times, finally making my decision as I walked to the polling station. In the end, I voted for Kilgore, but decided I wouldn’t be too devastated if Kaine won. His mentor, Gov. Warner, has done a decent job for a Democrat, and hopefully Kaine will follow suit.
