This is Why I Don’t Do This For a Living Anymore

November 4, 2009

I’m crushed. Not surprised, but so disappointed and sad. And I have to admit, I’m glad I don’t work on campaigns for a living anymore. Without much effort, I could have put myself in a position to be in a bad place tonight. I could have just worked my ass off to try to get someone elected Governor, only to be stomped out of the competition.

This is part of why I don’t do it anymore. The losing is too hard, and we Democrats in VA are all too familiar with the losing. I’m not a sore loser, but I feel like I’ve been punched in the stomach. And I only have a couple hundred dollars, a few hours of volunteer time and friends (staff and candidate) invested in it.

That’s enough wallowing for now. Next I’ll write about the damage that could be done in the Commonwealth over the next 4 years (and you thought the economy was bad!).
