I see that Jeff Dion has revamped his campaign website from his failed bid for Occoquan Supervisor, and now has his campaign committee identified as “Jeff Dion For Delegate”. Although he failed in his bid to become a county supervisor, he’s using that failed effort to try to vault him into contention for an even higher office. That’s a bit of a stretch.
Readers have participated pretty strongly in the poll which considers a race between Faisal Gill and Jeff Dion, which shows that even among BVBL readers, which might not quite be an accurate representation of the electorate and probably favors Republicans pretty heavily, that Dion would crush Faisal Gill if he wins the nomination. I’d say Dion would find this rather encouraging:
Against Julie Lucas, he’s seem to have very little chance, and would probably be defeated just as strongly as he was in January by Mike May, who trounced him by 14 points.
Will Dion run as an independent and seek an endorsement from the PWCDC in order to save the expense of having a convention? Will Gill be recognized as someone very likely to lose to just about anyone the Democrats put up? Stay tuned…
