The Right questions what we can learn from Tuesday’s elections in Virginia

What do the results of Tuesday’s elections really tell us about politics? A roundup of editorials Thursday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the Right:

1. GOP's loss tells us little about the state of politics

From The Federalist: The elections were telling, but maybe what they told is that, traditionally, we don’t like whoever is in power.

2. The true reason Republicans lost In Virginia

From The Daily Caller: The election was a “massacre for Republicans” in Virginia, but Virginia isn’t what Virginia used to be.

3. Is Virginia now a blue state?

From Real Clear Politics: Democrats would be smart to use the results of the Virginia election to turn out the vote in 2018.
