'NIGHTMARE' -- McAuliffe + De Blasio + Christie = One bad night for conservatives -- By Alex Pappas, The Daily Caller

McAuliffe, De Blasio and Christie victory a ‘conservative nightmare’Even before all the votes were cast on Tuesday, media magnate Matt Drudge asked his Twitter followers to “hug a conservative today.”

Hours later, former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe barely squeaked out a win over Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli in the Virginia governor’s race.

Bill de Blasio won his race to become the first Democratic mayor of New York City in decades.

And Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — decried as a moderate by some conservatives — walloped his Democratic opponent, unofficially kicking off his campaign as the GOP establishment favorite for president in 2016.

Drudge’s take: “McAuliffe, De Blasio and Christie: Triple feature in a Republican’s nightmare.”

Christie — who has angered conservatives ever since he profusely praised President Obama after Hurricane Sandy in the days before the 2012 election — explained his recipe for success on Tuesday.

“I think that the party’s got to focus on winning again,” Christie told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “You know, sometimes I feel like our party cares more about winning the argument than they care about winning elections. And if you don’t win elections, you can’t govern. And if you can’t govern, you can’t change the direction of a state, like we’ve done in New Jersey.”
