Five things to know about this year's most important election

Richmond, Virginia (CNN) - The Virginia governor's race, billed as the marquee battle of an otherwise anticlimactic 2013 election cycle, is shaping up to be a foregone conclusion.

Democrat Terry McAuliffe, the longtime political fixer and moneyman, hasn't trailed in a poll since May. Barring a political miracle, Republican Ken Cuccinelli will be delivering a concession speech on Tuesday evening in Richmond.

    I must have missed the 5 things, as I could only get the first two paragraphs. So here are my five : Cooch has voter suppression going for him, millions from the Kochs, anti women's rights activists on his side, those who supported his efforts to spend millions of taxpayer money to fight ACA, and he gets to certify the winner.

    According to a brain dead right wing nut, under the new ACA, private insurance companies competing for people to insure, is socialism. Fox viewers are so easily mislead.

    ______________
    O.K., CNN- what gives? If you are going to characterize one candidate as a "fixer" or a "moneyman"- as you did McAuliffe, why no such designation for Cuccinelli? Certainly Cuccinelli with his somewhat unique social positions could be worthy of a few. Further, you go on to imply that there is nothing wrong with Gov. Mc Donald's tenure (just a few small issues likely leading to criminal indictment), nor beyond describing Mr. Cuccinelli as "conservative", one could assume only Democratic trickery is afoot.
    What about Mr. Cuccinelli's failure to step down as Attorney General while candidate for Governor? After all, he defend's Virginia's new voter restriction laws that clearly benefit him. What about the Governor's criminality? Why is that not an issue? What about Mr. Cuccinelli's Taliban-like stance on some, abortion and birth control?
    Sorry, CNN, your analysis is rather lacking.
