The write-in candidacy of “Ham Sandwich for Commonwealth Attorney” looks like it’s going to become a full-blown campaign by the looks of the new campaign website that’s popped up. They’re even talking about raising money through a PAC in order to buy yard signs and bumper stickers to promote the campaign. How you do a campaign kickoff for a sandwich should be interesting, but I can certainly see bumper stickers for this campaign becoming a hot commodity. Meanwhile it looks like Ham has a relative running in the 10th House District by the looks of Alton Foley’s sidebar.
This could be the delicatessen year for Virginia politics. Can an incumbent officeholder be defeated in an election by an inanimate object? This campaign season looks like it might be the first time this concept could be tested, as this is looking more and more like a serious challenge.
