Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Election Day, November 6, 2012. Go Obama (and Democrats everywhere)! Polls in Virginia are, as always, open from 6 am until 7 pm - go vote, and don't let anyone you know forget to vote. For more motivation, check out President Obama's emotional final rally of the campaign, before a huge crowd "where it all began," late last night in Des Moines, Iowa.
The purpose of Blue Virginia is to cover Virginia politics from a progressive and Democratic perspective. This is a group blog and a community blog. We invite everyone to comment here, but please be aware that profanity, personal attacks, bigotry, insults, rudeness, frequent unsupported or off-point statements, "trolling" (NOTE: that includes outright lies, whether about climate science, or what other people said, or whatever), and "troll ratings abuse" (e.g., "troll" rating someone simply because you disagree with their argument) are not permitted and, if continued, will lead to banning. For more on trolling, see the Daily Kos FAQs. Also note that diaries may be deleted if they do not contain at least 2 solid paragraphs of original text; if not, please use the comments section of a relevant diary.
