The memo goes on to say that "House Republicans and Ken Cuccinelli’s agenda are one and the same, and swing voters unequivocally rejected that agenda on Tuesday."

"From attacking women’s rights to make their own health care decisions and opposition to immigration reform to an obsessive focus on undermining health care reform and rejection of gay Americans’ full equality, Ken Cuccinelli’s agenda has been in lockstep with that of House Republicans," the memo said. "The Republicans in this Congress who will be on the ballot next year are not Chris Christie Republicans – the only Republican to survive Tuesday’s trouncing. They were elected by and are beholden to the Tea Party."

The memo comes a day after Democrat Terry McAuliffe eked out a slim victory over Cuccinelli in the Virginia governor's race and former state Sen. Bradley Byrne (R) defeated tea party-backed conservative activist Dean Young in a Republican runoff for Alabama's first congressional district. The results were read as a victory over the tea party and conservative Republicans.
