It should take just over 1,000,000 votes to win this year, maybe 1,100,000. Will a million people be more likely to come to the polls to thank a candidate for supporting a tax increase that is already in effect, or will a million people be more likely to show up to protest a tax increase?
Seems like today is a good day for Ken Cuccinelli.
