Pennsylvania on The Election

Just got back from North Carolina, hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. It's not just Hispanics, though. Kilgore lost reliably Republican and conservative Prince William and Loudoun counties-- in suburban Washington and with close to 15,000 Muslims -- places where he also issued a strong call for a "crackdown" on illegal immigration. The full article can be found here. I am not sure about the statistics, but when I was going door to door, people did not have problems with Kilgore with his stand in illegal immigration. I believe that issue helped him.

Republicans are cutting off their noses to spite their faces. The status of immigrants change annually with the winds of Washington -- in fact many of the legal immigrants (and subsequent U.S. citizens) today entered the country illegally but the law changed to give them legal residence. These folks are hard working and family orientated -- they are natural Republican voters but they are being chased into the arms of the Democrats for political, racial, and religious bigotry. In Northern Virginia, we see more and more immigrants and larger and larger numbers of minorities. The higher their numbers become, the more difficult it will be for Republicans to win their votes and the votes of those folks who know better.

Polling data shows that 80% of those living in NOVA support a crack-down on illegal immigration.

It's just unfortunate that this one issue wasn't enough to get voters to the polls.
