Leesburg, VA: At a joint press conference with Americans For Prosperity - Virginia and former Governor George Allen to be held tomorrow, Governor Allen will announce the formal name change of Americans For Prosperity - Virginia to “George Allen For Governor”, with AFP Virginia Director Ben Marchi assuming the new leadership position of that organization which will be called “campaign manager.” Initially scheduled as a “town hall meeting,” tomorrow’s event has been repurposed as the campaign kickoff for the former Governor and United States Senator who was defeated by Jim Webb in 2006.
“I had decided to leave AFP and take a job in the dying health care industry that was being crushed by ObamaCare, as someone has to stick around and make the implosion go as smoothly as possible. This seemed to be quite a bit more challenging than riding around on fancily-painted buses and yakking with people about boring policy issues” said Marchi. “Then George Allen came by and said he’d let me ride his horses if I did some office paperwork and answered his phones. I couldn’t pass it up. It just sounded so exciting.”
Tim Phillips, President of the Americans For Prosperity remarked “Without Ben Marchi, AFP-Virginia wouldn’t be nearly as much fun as before, so we made some strategic changes that would not only preserve our state-level leadership, but position AFP where it could significantly influence policy. If George Allen doesn’t do what we tell him, the entire staff will start playing Farmville instead of working, and Jaime Radke will take the Republican nomination in a walk. We’ll have George and the entire United States Senate right where we want them.”
“After my last election cycle, I took a careful inventory of our resources. Ben Marchi already had a cowboy hat and boots, so those weren’t too useful, but I had horses and he didn’t. Heck, I don’t have time to play with horses. I barely have time to watch the playoffs. So Marchi and his organization come and work for me, and all I gotta do is let Ben ride Macacca from time to time. It’s really win-win.”
The press conference will be held on January 18th at 8:30-10:00am in the Ida Lee Recreational Center. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
