Obama's Got a Big Problem in Virginia

Kimberley Strassel has a good post on the election results in Virginia this week. In short, the GOP now controls the governorship, Senate and House for only the second time since the Civil War. More importantly, Democrats ran as far from Obama as they could get. This, despite the fact that Northern Virginia has grown wealthy on the backs of a massive federal government. Now, it takes one unpopular president to accomplish that feat but Obama achieved it.

Democrat US Senate candidate Tim Kaine must be more than a little worried right now, as I've already seen commercials showing his praise for Obamacare and Obamanomics when he was chairman of the DNC.
