Corey Stewart, the bombastic conservative who built his public image on championing Confederate symbols, won the Republican Senate nomination in Virginia. Stewart, a member of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors, defeated state House member Nick Freitas and minister E.W. Jackson in Tuesday's primary. Freitas conceded the race Tuesday night, according to local media. He now faces Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine, the party's 2016 vice presidential nominee and a heavy favorite for re-election, in November's midterm election.

Time for Republicans to Take Ownership of Their Racism: Its time for the republicans to fess up and take ownership of their racism. They cant keep pretending that these openly racist candidates win republican primaries without the support of the people who keep voting for them. YOUR PARTY VOTED FOR THEM BECAUSE YOU LIKE WHAT THEY STAND FOR. They run as republicans and republicans vote for them. They are the voice of your party, your elected representatives.

Republicans will swing so far to the right that they will eventually be unelectable. They are running on racist populism but they are going to find out that the younger generations don't share their racism and that tactic will stop working for them.

As a Virginia voter, I strongly predict that Kaine will defeat Stewart come November.

Because the publicity will motivate the democrats to vote against him. Meanwhile he will still get the republican vote.

Republican logic #1642

"If our racist candidate loses it proves we aren't racists even though we nominated him and voted for him"

The Census Bureau reports that 30% of Virginia residents are other than Caucasian. Assuming none of the voters with skin other than white will vote for him, this dork will have to earn 70+% of the white vote to be elected. In the meantime, The Dotard's rhetorical question to African Americans-- "What the hell do you have to lose?"-- is becoming less rhetoric and more reality...

Doesn't seem too far-fetched.

As a native Virginian I am embarrassed for my home state that he got this far.

But, I agree, Kaine will slaughter him in November.

Congratulations to Corey Stewart for his great victory for Senator from Virginia," Trump tweeted Wednesday. "Now he runs against a total stiff, Tim Kaine, who is weak on crime and borders, and wants to raise your taxes through the roof. Don't underestimate Corey, a major chance of winning!,/i>

He's just reading the dumb racist base's wishes. If trump can get elected on ignorance and white supremacy alone, so can any red state republican.

Not really a redneck place by any stretch.

There are two types of confederate monuments. One are the memorials that were erected before 1900. Those are actual memorials, for the fallen soldiers that never came home, most buried in unmarked graves a long way from home. Consider those tombstones or grave markers. Then there are the statues of Generals, most of those were erected after 1950, mostly as a middle finger to the north. I don't support the iconoclasts, but the general's statues should be moved to the grave yards of the men who they led to their deaths. There image should face their men, eternally. The old memorials should be left. Most of the confederate army never owned slaves, most were drafted, many had little sympathy for the southern cause, but the reality was, they were being invaded bu an army which indiscriminately looted, burned and destroyed everything in their wake. There was nothing civil about that war.
