Virginia Republican Senate candidate Corey Stewart became America’s first election night loser when CNN called his race against Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.).

After losing the Virginia primary for governor in 2017, where he ran on a pro-Confederacy platform, Stewart tried his hand at challenging Kaine, Virginia’s popular incumbent senator. His campaign was beset by concerns that it was cozy with racists and mocked for Stewart’s obsession with trying to paint Kaine as a member of antifa.

When pictures of Stewart’s election night celebration party were posted moments before his race was declared over, people on Twitter pounced.

According to William Steakin, a reporter with the Independent Journal Review, the election party was unable to change the channel at the bar, which was playing coverage of the midterms by a very liberal site called The Young Turks.

According to Steakin, there was one bright spot: The chicken wings were excellent.
