Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are pleased to see scandal-ridden New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez in a very tight race against Republican challenger Bob Hugin, even though a GOP win is still considered difficult. They also give two thumbs down to West Virginia’s plan to allow voters in 24 counties to vote through a smartphone app. And as Democrats continue to demand an FBI investigation into allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, they get a kick out of then-Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Joe Biden saying “The next person that refers to an FBI report as being worth anything, obviously doesn’t understand anything” during the 1991 Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America break down how the Democrats easily swept the statewide races in Virginia and even reversed a huge GOP majority in the state assembly. They also discuss easy wins by Democrats in New Jersey and New York City, where the Republicans hardly appear to be a factor anymore. And they roll their eyes as Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake proposes a law to ban gun sales to people convicted of domestic violence – because that exact law already exists.
