Obama Suffers Major Humiliation, Even as Democrats Celebrate Victory

By

Last week’s state elections in Virginia ended with the Democrats seizing control of all three branches of government for the first time since 1993.

Even so, Barack Obama, who now lives a stone’s throw from Virginia and has taken to meddling in the state’s politics, probably wasn’t in a celebratory mood.

That’s because nearly half of the 17 candidates for the local legislature that he personally endorsed ended up losing.


Just nine of the 17 candidates backed by Obama won, two out of six in the State Senate, and seven out of 11 in the House of Delegates.

That’s a pretty abysmal win rate considering the sweeping victories Democrats experienced in the districts where Obama didn’t get involved.

Turns out an endorsement by the former president might not be so desirable.
