I’ve received word that the entire Chapman campaign team has disbanded. Bob Fitzsimmonds will be supporting Jackson Miller. Welcome aboard, Bob!
I believe that Steve Chapman tried to do something good for the citizens of Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park and provide a voice for conservative issues as he had earlier done with considerable skill in fighting against a gambling initiative in Manassas Park, and in his run against Harry Parrish. I was a Chapman supporter in his race against Harry Parrish, as were many other conservatives who were angry with Harry over his support for tax increases and some of his relatively moderate positions on other conservative hot-button issues.
Steve’s ‘06 campaign highlighted the types of missteps and poor decisions that started to show up the ‘05 campaign. In the end, a fatal but not uncharacteristic miscue ended his run for the republican nomination. The 50th HOD race is now far less entertaining, and gratefully so. Amateur hour is over.
