Democratic candidates swept the three major statewide elections in Virginia on Tuesday, signaling a boon for the party after a series of losses in House races earlier this year. Justin Fairfax (D) edged out state Sen. Jill Vogel (R) in Virginia's lieutenant gubernatorial race on Tuesday, while  Democratic state Attorney General Mark Herring held onto his office, according to The Washington Post.The wins add to a mounting tally for Democrats in the commonwealth as the party celebrated Ralph Northam's victory in the gubernatorial election.  With about 95 percent of precincts reporting, Fairfax was expected to narrowly beat Vogel and Herring was comfortably ahead of Republican John Adams, according to The Post.

Lee Carter, a member of ... a Democratic Socialist candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates, ... has just won his election in the state's 50th ...

That is a quote from one of the VA news reports of the election. What is really interesting is the Political Kleptocracy has obviously invaded the national press, which is reporting that the Democrats 'Swept the Elections in VA'.

I think that decision may be based on one of two things:

a) "Democratic" is the first word of the Party's name; or b) The only other elected Democratic Socialist is Bernie Sanders, who is currently cuddling up to Chuck Schumer, to show there really is no difference in most of their opinions and actions. Everything else is just words for Public Consumption!

From what I've read, Lee Carter considers himself a Socialist, not a Democrat. In Politics, names and words should mean something. When they don't, we all suffer.

If you doubt it, consider how the Press tarred both Sanders and Trump with the label 'Populist'. Sanders might qualify, but Trump's appeal was the same as that of the German Nationalist Socialist Party in 1933 - A thin veil for the Corporatists and Fascists to hide behind!
