OK...I'm leaving for my classes and then I'm off to Richmond for the victory party! I'll take lots of photos and hopefully will report back triumphantly tomorrow.

AHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was front row center at the victory party!!!!!!!!! I'm in tons of AP photos, so if you see a blonde girl wearing an "I Tim" shirt that's me.

But OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tim came out on stage, saw me and said "Hey Laura!" and I later got a hug from him

At one point Gov. Warner was introducing TIm, and Tim's eyes started filling up with tears, so did mine, but we both fought them.

I took a TON of photos, I'll upload them when I get back to school tomorrow. WOW!!!!!!!! SWEET VICTORY!!!!!!!!!!

Polls had Kilgore tied with Kaine headed into the final day when Bush flew from Panama to Virginia and laid his bets.

Bush put his wispy political prestige on the line in the Virginia governor's race and lost Tuesday when the candidate he embraced in a last-minute campaign stop was soundly defeated. While there are many reasons for Jerry Kilgore's defeat, chief among them his poor campaign, giddy Democrats said the Virginia race as well as a Democratic victory in New Jersey prove that Bush is a political toxin for Republicans.

"The arrogance of saying, `I'm the Great George Bush. I'm coming to Virginia in the 12th hour and pulling Kilgore's bacon out of the fire.' I think he rallied Democrats with that move," said Steve Jarding, a Democratic political consultant who helped elect Virginia's current governor, Mark Warner.

"Democratic voters said, 'I'll send you a message, George Bush, if that's what you want.'"

Sounds like you earnt it pet, great work

Kilgores dodgy campaigning ads and inability to grasp the concept of the 'hypothetical question' probably helped sway this one.

Gov Elect Kaine: "OMG, kids, isn't that Laura?"

Congrats to Kaine and U2Dem. VA remains blue! This will be important groundwork to build on for the 2006 Congressional elections, and 2008.
