You Can't Buy Forgetfulness

The Washington Post writes an epitaph for Terry McAuliffe's failed gubernatorial bid:

McAuliffe ended up doing the worst in the Washington suburbs, the place where people knew him best, despite amassing a $7.5 million war chest. He spent an average of $90 per vote. 

(Yes, I know the Post's own endorsement had a lot to do with this outcome. Still, a striking detail.)
