15 Point Swing

Some friends of mine have downplayed Warner's role in helping Kaine. I wanted to point out this Philadelphia Inquirer article discussing Kaine's campaign pre and post-Warner.

On Tuesday night, he was arguably the biggest winner in Virginia's gubernatorial race, even though his name wasn't on the ballot. He is the departing governor - a Democrat with a 70 percent positive rating in a tax-averse, socially conservative "red" state - and he put his popularity on the line to elect a Democratic successor. His guy won big, beating President Bush's guy. Tim Kaine was down by 10 points when Warner stepped in and took a visible role; Kaine won by 5 points.
