Its offical. Its been one week since Bob McDonnell was elected Virginia’s next Governor. Now that all of the pundits have had their say, I’m going to a little commentary. I’ll be doing a three part series on the election. First, I look at the results in the 11th District and compare them to Gerry Connolly‘s margins last year. In part two, I’ll see which candidates with the WaPo endorsements won, and finally in Part III, I’ll compare all of Northern Virginia to previous years, and give some commentary on what it means for next year or 2011.
