Nichols Defeats Gill

By Greg L | 7 November 2007 | 52nd HOD District | 33 Comments

The SBE website is reporting that with only the absentee precinct not reporting, Paul Nichols has defeated Faisal Gill 52%-48%.  I predicted this would be a close race, with Gill narrowly edging out Democrat Paul Nichols, but it turned out going for Nichols in the end.  If Paul Nichols is interested in holding this seat beyond one term though, he might want to consider switching parties now, as his next race will probably be a lot more competitive than this one was.

Paul Nichols was the only Democrat running at the state level to win in Prince William County, other than long-term incumbent Chuck Colgan.  The conditions that made this possible are not likely to revisit this race next time around.

    Oh Greg, come now, why would Nichols change parties. Two years from now, Miller, Frederick and Lingamfelter are going down. Long time incumbent Chuck Colgan is now President Pro-tem of the Senate and Chairman of Senate Finance. Who knows, two years from now, payback?

    I understand there was some concern as to my whereabouts in the last week or two. Sorry I missed you all I was out helping Senator Colgan put a whopping on Side Show Bob. I hope Bob doesn’t run again in four years, this is getting boring.

    Hopefully the Gill Machine has learned not to cheat during conventions.

    Nice work, PWC GOP!

    This victory belongs not to Nichols, but to all the ballot-stuffing, over-vote-counting, abortion-of-a-convention running, “consulting-web-designing-fee” taking, jihad collaborationists and quisling enablers, apologists and assorted running-dog lackeys in the PWC GOP machine. Blinded by all those riyals….. ha!

    Does anyone seriously doubt Julie Lucas would’ve held the seat?

    But ANON, 1:21 AM….more than a victory for Paul Nichols, this is a defeat for those very people you are talking about.

    Gill shouldn’t have even been on the ballot, we all know that…but Tom Kopko put him there…and as a result, not only gave up McQuigg’s seat but brought down Jay O’brien too. THAT is a shame.

    Now, it’s time to fix the PWCRC so this doesn’t happen again!!!

    Also, with a better Republican candidate in the 51st, it could have driven up the votes for O’Brien in the precints they share and he probably would have won also. Sure O’Brien won the PWC part of his district, but we needed to deliver BIG numbers. Thanks Kopko for turning over the Senate to the Dems.

    Might be a good idea to once again have a Republican party open to all PW citizens not just Tom Kopko and his friends. He has driven people away instead of embracing them into the party. O’Brien is just one defeat. Jeff Frederick should have been able to bring a republican to Woodbridge on his coat tails.

    I echo what Anon 6:52 said. I called that one a while back. On a night when the GOP did well in most parts of PWC, we see losses ONLY where Tom Kopko played a hand. I was supporting Colgan and am happy that he won decisively, but am very upset that Kopko’s stunts produced such a flawed candidate that he depressed GOP turnout and pulled down Sen. Jay O’Brien. Sad indeed.

    Hey Greg, how about a poll as to who should replace Tom Kopko?

    Actually, the Nichols victory belongs to: (a) a fairly nice guy who presents himself well, notwithstanding the moonbats supporting him; and (2) the sleazy traitors and cowards who have either anonymously smeared Faisal, and/or violated their oaths.

    What is truly despicable is that they probably will not earn their due, as most have carefully hid their identities so that they can “maintain their viability within the system.”

    Remember when Republicans used to think that such a strategy was a sleazy Clinton dodge?

    You must be very proud of yourselves.

    You just knew there would be such a “blame the horrible Republicans who couldn’t back a guy with very questionable ties to terrorist supporters and is an illegal immigrant attorney” comment from James Young. Gill has no one else to blame but himself and Kopko. This campaign was an abomination, and I was quite surprised that it was this close. Thank God Gill lost.

    Jihad James, understand this:

    We don’t want a guy who is a spokesman for convicted terrorist fund-raisers.

    We don’t want a guy who is a spokesman for radical islamic groups.

    We don’t want a guy who partners up with folks who want us to live under Sharia law.

    We don’t want a guy who seems to raise significant funds from shady sources.

    Get it? He’s NOT WANTED.

    What a strange love-interest for you. This guy isn’t electable. He’s actually dangerous. Thank God Almighty that he lost.

    You can bet Kopko had everything to do with those who lost offices.

    No one was working together on the Repb. side.
    Frederick is a great person and has done well in representing us in Richmond.
    But I am sure he stays clear of the Party and does his own building but not sure he helped or promoted Royse. Royse would have been a good Supervisor.

    But alot of this started at the Convention and McQuigg head of Credentials.
    She ran aroung with Gill stickers plastered all over her clothes. I bet she didn’t do anything after that to help him?
    Mcquigg played games and that is what she is known for,now she has a high paying job and able to support herself.At least she’s out of the way for 8 years.
    Gill, I hope will get lost and move again.

    Hopefully we can start a new Republican Party that is inclusive of the Moderates.Otherwise just let it fade away and we can remain Independents.

    What were the R’s thinking when they gave Gill the nomination? Thank goodness he was defeated. It would have been absolutely frightening had he won. The strategy of the terrorists is to undermine us from within, and Gill is part of that first front.

    Colgan won because of his seniority and people didn’t want to loose the pork he brings back to the district.

    I have known Fitzsimmonds for awhile with respect to the illegal alien issue, and I doubt his sincerity. I remember going to some Townhall meetings in Manassas in 2001 and 2002 specifically to address the security issues of illegal immigration, and Fitzsimmonds clearly didn’t get the distinction between “legal” and “illegal”, going on how a nice Nicaraguan family bought his house so he could move “up” to Victory Lakes. He is a RHINO imho and doesn’t deserve the nomination either.

    We must continue to keep up the pressure and ensure that there is follow-through and immigration enforcement is meaningful, consistent and effective.

    Thanks for the good work & the blog Greg.

    It is good to know that we still have a strong and solid base of Reagan Republicans on the east end of PWC who were willing to take a stand to protect our Nation, the Constitution of the United States of America, our freedom and the future of this Country.

    Thank you to our friends who live north of us who spent many hours researching, documenting, and disseminating information to Nichols, voters in the 51st, and for opening the eyes of many who would otherwise never have known of the hostile threat that lingers among us.

    If not for the block of Republican voters, Nichols wouldn’t have been able to stop Gill. Bravo my friends, bravo!

    “Thanks Kopko for turning over the Senate to the Dems.”

    Yes, thanks, Mr. Kopko. The Democrats needed to win the 51st and help regain order and respect in our great General Assembly. Thanks again for all you did for us.

    I see that Darth Vader Jr is back from the Dark Side. Jimmy-boy, when you said, “he sleazy traitors and cowards who have either anonymously smeared Faisal, and/or violated their oaths” it makes me think that YOU should be the one to apologize.

    YOU should be held accountable for supporting someone with VERY questionable ties, is currently under investigation by a government agency, and for any part you may or may not have played in a convention that is not even in your District.

    As you sit in your chair stewing, wondering who each anonymous name could be, making false guesses as to who we are much like the false accusations of “racism” that you once threw about, we sit here with mixed emotions. We laugh at your posts and your website without a counter (embarrassing that it would only show 1 hit a day, and that would be from you) yet we mourn at the fact that the 51st could have, SHOULD HAVE been in Republican hands.

    When a party head looses badly, he usually steps down, even if not his fault…it’s the honorable thing to do. In THIS case it SQUARELY lands in the lap of Mr. Tom Kopko and Denny D. It will be nice to attend a PWCGOP meeting and NOT have to see them there anymore.

    Are you suggesting a trade of sorts? Friedman for Kopko? That might be the one and only thing the Democrats and Republicans would ever agree on. One big EWWWWWWWW.

    Isn’t it interesting how jimmy is soooooooo interested in whom we are?? Suppose it’s so he could greet us or wish us well at the next meeting? Nope, no chance — it’s so that he and his “Committee Bosses” could evict and eliminate any dissent. How sad is that?? :(

    It would be interesting to see the attendance at the next PWCRC meeting. Kopko, Stewart, Daugherty, Fitz, Gill, Jim Young and a few family alliance members from the west end of the county. Kopko has manage to decrease the membership by over 5o%. Great leadership!

    While many in the 51st District slept last night in their comfortable beds taking for granted that all was good in America…………they were saved from being represented in the Virginia Assembly by a guy who has not denounced his ties with radical Islam. God Bless those who put America ahead of their party affiliation. Please America…wake up!!

    It can be said that one can only violate an oath made to a legitimate authority. A convention whose organizers abrogated themselves of their responsibilities does not qualify as a legitimate authority. No my friends, the result of the election for the 51 district have helped us avoid a debacle that would have had national ramifications and garnered us only unwelcome and unwarranted attention. Nichols got my vote.

    The nomination was not GIVEN TO Gill…it was STOLEN BY Gill. If you want to get some information on the story, go to the 51st HOD archive on this site (51st HOD District (106). You’ll be stunned.

    Actually, AW, it was not stolen by Faisal Gill. It was stolen by Tom Kopko and handed to Faisal much like two thieves in the night. These guys, along with Jimmy, Michele “Not Malkin” McQuigg, Faisal’s Straight Lover, Bill Bolling, and the rest of the Little Rascals are like the Mafia. They take their orders from number one, but instead step in number 2.

    It is now time to close the curtain on this reign of error in Kopkoland and take back our party once and for all!!! I look forward to the next PWCGOP meeting and when the dust settles, you will hear my roar!!! The words I have written we ALL will say out loud, “Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Tom Kopko has GOT TO GO!!!” And when HE speaks, we will stand up, turn around, and all he will see is our BACKS (ok, other parts too which I just may offer to him to kiss, lol).

    What is even more interesting is that you so fear the consequences of association with your smears that you hide your identities.
