Well, will you just look at that! Mike Hodge, who was defeated for the Democrat nomination for 52nd District by now-Delegate Luke Torian, has decided to become a Republican. No telling whether Torian’s far-left voting record in the House of Delegates is going to change in the next session of the General Assembly, or if Torian will just crater in November 2011 when Mike Hodge gets to hold him to account for playing Jeremiah Wright in the farce Torian’s short tenure has become.
In 2009 Torian barely eked out a victory against a Republican whose campaign didn’t really start until four weeks before the election. This time around, I think the outcome may well be very different.
