Virginia and D.C.

let me tell you a little story about a lame state called Virginia who had their primary yesterday.

first the facts (pay attention Ohio):

Total voters for all of GOP - 483,216
Total votes for Obama - 619,490

that means that in Virginia - a traditionally Republican state - Barack Obama received 136,274 MORE VOTES than both Republican candidates.

furthermore, Virginia has gone for GOP presidential candidates in the last 5 elections!

lame-o Virginia, i think i love you a little bit.

additionally, in a little place we call the District of Colombia - at the heart of U.S. politics - Obama received a whopping 75% of the vote blowing Hillary out of the water. that really has nothing to do with Virginia but it's a fun fact i wanted to share.
