First, from the publisher of National Review Online, Jack Fowler:
I am the publisher of National Review, so I believe I have some conservative credentials. And a long time ago I was a member of the Spotsylvania Republican Party.
That said, I support Bob Marshall as THE conservative candidate, and I have put my money where my mouth is. Go Bob!
Next up, former Delegate Jack Reid:
Dear Fellow Republican,Although I did not run again for the House of Delegates this past November, I nevertheless paid close attention to the results and it was not a pretty picture for Republicans in Virginia.
We lost four seats in the House of Delegates and another four seats in the State Senate. Gone was our majority in the State Senate and we now are 3 seats away from losing our majority in the House of Delegates.
In 2008 and 2009 we will face pivotal statewide elections which will decide if we remain a Republican state or let all our accomplishments slip away.
Quite simply it is time for a change.
Something has to be done now or we will be relegated to a minority party for years to come. We simply cannot continue do the same old thing and expect different results.
That is why I am strongly supporting my friend Jeff Frederick in his race for Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia.
Jeff is a conservative and energetic member of the House of Delegates who wants to change things at the state party. He wants to remake the party into a campaign organization that starts winning elections again.
And Jeff knows how to win elections. His House of Delegate district has not been won by a statewide Republican in a decade and yet he just won re-election with 59% of the vote while maintaining his core conservative values.
One of the reasons Jeff does so well in a hostile political environment is that he is a proven fundraiser. Representing just one percent of the entire state, Jeff has been able to raise over 1.3 million dollars in the last four years just for his House of Delegates campaigns. Imagine what he could do for the RPV representing 100% of the state.
It is time to start winning again. We cannot continue to follow the old failed options of the past. Its time to elect Jeff Frederick the next Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia.
I strongly urge you to support Jeff in his efforts to rebuild the party and start winning elections again.
Member, Virginia House of Delegates 1990–2008
Any questions about who the real conservative is in this race? I thought not.
