Dion For Delegate Goes Live

By Greg L | 28 April 2007 | 51st HOD District | 9 Comments

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…

    I asked Brian Moran about HOD-51 online at the Washington Post a few months ago. He said that HOD-51 figured prominently in his plans to take back the House of Delegates.

    The Dems spent $300,000 in Mark Sickles’ Fairfax County district to take back the seat from a weakened Republican incumbent. It appears that there is a possibility that Gill could be the Republican nominee, which will make the seat Democratic.

    You can bet that the Dems will put up a nominee in HOD-51, and the few thousand that it takes to hold a convention won’t matter.

    I’m not from the area, so can someone please explain to me about Faisal Gill? Thanks

    As people around here often say, just google “Faisal Gill” and you will find out all you need to know.

    I wonder if this site will contain photos of his “supporters” from up on Dupont Circle. Y-M-C-A!

    The most effective ad campaign that Dion could ever have would be three words: “Google Faisal Gill.” However, it should be focused on Dem voters. Otherwise you are increasing Faisal’s name recognition.

    If the Dem base “googles Faisal Gill” and reads about Alamoudi and Gill, Norquist and Gill, maybe even reckless driving and Gill then they will tell others who will tell others.

    The great thing is that Michelle Malkin’s attack on Gill always comes up on the first page. Not even head cases who support Gill can claim that Malkin is a leftist.

    The republican train wreck coming down the track is the more dems learn about Gill and who he funneled money to will come back to haunt them. It could mean the end of a couple high level state republicans. The dems would be stupid not to use that info.
