The McDonnell party: It's Pat!

Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson made an appearance at Republican Robert F. McDonnell's election night party, calling his likely victory a testament to the American public's distaste of President Obama.

Speaking to The Washington Post outside the main ballroom at the Richmond Marriott, Robertson said McDonnell was a "true public servant" and that his election as Virginia's governor would "mean a whole lot to me."

"I'm president of his alma mater, you know," Robertson said, referring to Regent University in Virginia Beach. A university press crew, cheering for McDonnell from the press table, also showed up at the rally.

Robertson, who along with his family donated $40,000 in last-minute contributions to McDonnell's campaign, said that he would not "read too much" into a McDonnell victory but said Americans were "sick to death of Obama's agenda."

"I think it could be a signal that there's a good deal of anger out there about where this country is heading," he said.

His message to McDonnell: "Stay the course. You've done such a good job so far."
