Virginia’s Blue State Status Revoked
On Friday the Democratic National Convention revoked Virginia’s “Blue State” ranking after it was learned that the majority of voters only voted for President Elect, Barack Obama’s white half. A DCN spokesperson said that “although the Electoral Collage will still recognize Virginia’s 13 electoral votes for Obama it will have to list Virginia as Purple indefinitely.” This is a shock to many voters that had celebrated what they thought was a clear sign that Virginia was on it’s way to finally separating itself from West Virginia, Virginia’s deeply red/neck sister state to the north. Also, the DNC is looking into possible “half voting” by North Carolina, “we should know something by the end of next week on the status of NC,” said the DNC spokesperson.
