Memo to GOP leaders: Virginia's over you and it's time to find a new relationship with Pennsylvania.

"Instead of just hoping that Virginia will magically turn red again, the GOP needs to focus on other traditionally Democratic states that have nonetheless moved rightward since 2000," writes Brandon Finnigan. "It’s long past time for the GOP to realize Virginia’s just not that into it, and to finally ask Pennsylvania out on a date."
