51st HOD District Category Archives
Paul Nichols was a first-term delegate with lots of money, but wasn’t expected to personally work that hard for his own re-election. Rich Anderson looked promising as a challenger because he was willing to put in the time and effort to get elected. In the end, Anderson knocking on a huge number doors in the […]
The Berry Award winners for 2009 have been announced, and local candidate Rich Anderson has garnered the top prize for this video, entitled “Leadership”. Congratulations to the Anderson campaign for setting the standard this election cycle!
In 2007 Delegate Paul Nichols took this District against a weak Republican candidate, promising to be a moderate. Two years later, his voting record is somewhat mixed, he hasn’t connected with his district, and Republicans have come up with a very interesting candidate to challenge him in retired Colonel Rich Anderson. This is one of the […]
The liberal Blue Virginia blog reports that former Redskin Curtis Jordan taped a robo-call that went out in the 51st District today to address the issue of Delegate Paul Nichols being arrested in 2006 on charges of assaulting a police officer. Here’s the transcript, according to them:
Delegate Paul Nichols was taken into custody for resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer? Not good.
If the idea of bringing Metro to Woodbridge as a solution to all of the transportation problems in the Route One corridor doesn’t pan out, Delegate Paul Nichols has a fascinating fallback plan.
But if the Metro plan Nichol’s envisions does not work, he quipped Thursday there is another way to bail residents out of gridlock.
“Build sidewalks on 95. People will […]
Prince William County Chairman Corey Stewart’s opinion piece in the Bull Run Observer about promoting metro as the solution to our transportation problems, something Congressman Gerry “Cowardly” Connolly and Delegate Paul Nichols have advocated, is getting a lot more attention than a piece in this small (yet quite impressive) publication would usually merit. No one has […]
Rich Anderson knocks another one out of the park with this video. I understand that the arabic man in the video shaking hands with Rich was the translator for General Myers in Afganistan, and is now a newly-minted American citizen who will be casting his vote for Rich Anderson on November […]
I looks like the 51st District race is heating up early with charges from the Nichols campaign that Rich Anderson is push-polling a question about Nichol’s vote on HB 1481 last session. According to the Manassas News & Messenger, The Nichols camp is saying that the 68 question poll that Anderson is running wrongly leaves the […]
Campaign finance reports are now available, and in Prince William County races there are only a few surprises. Most of these are falling in pretty much where I expected, but there are a few surprises here.
Rich Anderson is running a heck of a campaign in the 51st District, and this is one of the best campaign videos in the House of Delegates races so far. This cycle it’s looking like Republicans are taking over new media, and putting up much better content than their counterparts. I […]
We had lawyers, they had lawyers, and our lawyers beat the snot out of theirs. Instead of slinking off in well deserved embarrassment as they should, the next chapter of the battle by the losers is to smear the victors as part of a “hate group”, and some are dumb enough to fall for this, […]
NLS has a very interesting post looking at the election results in the 51st District that political junkies in Prince William will find rather informative.
With that it seems clear to me that despite all his weaknesses as a candidate, Faisal Gill still could have won this election if he had won the convention in a […]
A reporter asked me today whether changes in party control mean that it’s going to be even harder to get bills though the General Assembly this year that attempt to address the illegal alien problem. My answer was that it shouldn’t, as many Democrats made a lot of promises during their campaigns that they’re going […]
The aftermath of the election in the 51st District is prompting some interesting commentary that suggests that in 2009 there’s going to be quite a bit of jockeying for position for the opportunity to challenge Delegate-elect Paul Nichols for the 51st House District. Already, the kool-aid addicts that think that Faisal Gill is a good […]
In a ruling published yesterday, PWCRC Chairman Tom Kopko in his role as the sole member of the 51st District Legislative Committee, denied the appeal by Julie Lucas of the 51st District Convention which happened on June 2nd. About the only surprise here is that he didn’t wait until November 5th to publish his […]
Oh my. This is not good news for Republicans in the 51st District.
Faisal Gill, the official Republican nominee for the 51st in the District House of Delegates, had a press conference today in which he called for elevating the penalty for hiring an illegal alien to a felony. It’s an interesting idea, although there may likely be a federal preemption in this regard and the Commonwealth may […]
Delegate Michele McQuigg, who is now running for Clerk of the Court, has asked me to post the following in regards to her role in the 51st District Convention. For those of you concerned about what happened there, the following sheds some light on what happened behind the scenes:
Tonight’s PWCRC meeting included a plenty of calls for Republican unity in order to help our candidates win in November, and those calls make a lot of sense. The purpose of the committee is to get Republicans elected, and unity is an important part of accomplishing that goal. With a fractured party, this goal is […]
