The mainstream media is practically glowing with delight after Democrats won two governor positions Tuesday — and CNN is calling it a “blue wave” and a total rejection of President Donald Trump by American voters.
But the truth is far more nuanced.

In Virginia, a state that didn’t vote Trump…
That previously had a Democratic governor…
A Democrat won. That’s supposed to be a stunning message that resonates with the White House?
No, CNN, it’s quite the opposite. Tuesday’s election was a message for the do-nothing establishment Republicans.

Conservative voters elected Trump to shake things up in Washington, D.C. They elected Trump to “drain the swamp.” Congress has impeded the president at nearly every turn in the past year.
Refusing to listen to the 2016 voter mandate has left conservatives frustrated and unwilling to back non-Trump supporting candidates.
Trump himself tweeted a warning to the establishment —
Ed Gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what I stand for. Don’t forget, Republicans won 4 out of 4 House seats, and with the economy doing record numbers, we will continue to win, even bigger than before!

It’s time for the GOP establishment to listen and get on-board with the White House.
The conservative message on Tuesday to Republicans was simple: Follow through with your 2016 promises, or voters won’t support you or your preferred candidates in 2018.
