Terry McAuliffe, Democrat, won the Virginia's Governor race yesterday, and with that victory, Mr. McAuliffe has lit the beacon of progressive causes to shine into the United States House of Representatives Elections in the fall of 2014. Mr. McAuliffe won the election because stalwart canvassers and voters in Virginia understand the socio-economic and political effects of extremism upon stable societies. They said NO to the Republican candidate. But Mr. McAuliffe must now keep the high road and govern for all the people. Polarization has no place in modern day politics and societies. No one wants to return to a time of darkness and social injustices. Constituents have evolved and they continue to do so with every election.
On a personal note, I would like to thank Mr. Bradley of Ryan Road, Henrico County, Virginia, a non-complex man I met on the campaign trail yesterday. Mr. Bradley voted early for the Democratic ticket and by afternoon, he was outside mending his lawn all by himself the old fashion way with grit and sweat, no fancy stuff like a close neighbor of his. Rather than water his lawn with City water, Mr. Bradley is awaiting the rains. Mr. Bradley, who has seen civil rights through many stages, understands the implications of the socio-economic and political ramifications of exercising his citizenship by voting - and voting for the candidate he felt better with carrying the mantle of progressiveness to the next level and not reversing beneficial change. Mr. Bradley, on behalf of Terry McAuliffe and all people of good will, I salute you. God Bless and may it rain soon upon Henrico County.
