Chichester Is Out

By Greg L | 12 March 2007 | 28th VA Senate | 5 Comments

I just got the word that the expected retirement of John Chichester has actually happened. Oh, happy days!

UPDATES: And the conservative blogosphere breaks into celebration:

Virginia Virtucon: “nah, nah, nah, nah,…hey, hey, hey… goodbye!”

Renaissance Ruminations: “That sound you just heard was the cork popping off a bottle of champagne at VCAP.”


Mason Conservative : “Let the flood gates open!”

Chichester Must Go: “I must admit, I admired Chichester’s class; he could have taken the Russ Potts’ route and hurled bitter invective at his opponents”

NovaTownHall: Who will raise our taxes now? That’s right. We still have democrats. At least, the leader of the state senate won’t be helping them anymore (hopefully).

Meanwhile Dems scramble to draft Al Pollard in order to have something of a credible candidate. Yeah, Pollard will run. And no, it won’t matter much.

    Are you kidding me?

    Pollard represented the 99th district for 3 terms. He’s we’ll known in the Northern Neck district that had been Democratic since 1982 until Rob Wittman won it. He’d be a formidable candidate who always did well with Republican voters.

    In off years elections, the 28th breaks down as:

    53% Stafford/F-burg
    40% 99th district (Wittman)
    7% out of PW/Fauquier

    In Gov elections:
    54% Stafford/F-burg
    42% 99th district
    4% PW/Fauqier

    It’s a Republican district. It’s not a lock for an 1st time Republican candidate going up against some who’s been on the ballot in at least 40% of the district like Pollard. If Pollard runs, then Leans GOP If Pollard doesn’t run, then it’s Likely GOP.

    If Pollard does run, he do better than the average Dem in Stafford, although he’ll lose the county. I’m sure Peggy Garland talked to Pollard about her intentions so if he does not run, that would keep the seat in GOP hands.
