Driving liberals, dhimmis and illegal alien apologists absolutely insane since 2005...

Goodbye, Chuck!

By Greg L | 25 May 2011 | 29th VA Senate, Prince William County | 21 Comments

NLS is reporting that finally, Chuck Colgan is packing it in.  Folks in the 50th House District better start finding a replacement for Delegate Jackson Miller, because we’re going to need someone to fill his shoes pretty darned quick.

Significant: If Jackson Miller is the Republican nominee, the Democrats majority in the Senate of Virginia shrinks to one seat.  2011 Senate races become a one-seat contest.

    Other potential candidates for this seat: Delegate Scott Lingamfelter, Manassas Mayor Hal Parrish, and former School Board member Julie Lucas, if residency issues can be resolved since she went to Florida to take care of her father with terminal cancer. If Jackson Miller decides he is not going to run, there’s still a strong and deep bench here.

    This is going to be the biggest contest in Prince William County this election cycle.

    Thank the good Lord that Colgan is retiring. Perhaps we can finally get representation in the Virginia Senate that cares about the illegal immigration problems plaguing our communities, our state, and our nation.

    Jackson Miller would be “outstanding”.

    Lingamfelter, while a nice guy, is too full of himself and seems like a crybaby if he doesn’t get his way.

    Parrish blows with the wind and not a conservative.

    Miller is good on most issues and would make a great Senator.

    Lucas would also be a good conservative to have as a Senator

    One name: Marc Aveni

    I bet Aveni doesn’t have the time.

    Lingamfelter is not in Cogan’s District. He remains in Puller’s. The D’s split his precinct.

    DUH, you obviously don’t know him well. When people are wrong, he doesn’t hesitate to tell them.

    The new boundaries of this district heavily favor a Democrat. Whoever we select on the Republican side will need plenty of support to not only win, but to eventually hold the seat. David Brickley will be seeking the seat for the Dems.

    Jackson has the name recognition and the credentials to win this, everyone just needs to get behind him.

    I thought that somewhere, someone posted some “performance data” on this district which indicates that it’s more democratic than it was before. Is that right? I can’t lay my hands on it right now….

    From CNN-


    U.S. Supreme Court upholds Arizona law punishing businesses that hire illegal immigrants.

    The 5-3 ruling is a victory for supporters of a crackdown on illegal immigration. Opponents of the law, including the Obama administration, say it steps on traditional federal oversight over immigration matters.

    This has been made into a Dem lean seat but a strong candidate out of Manassas can win this. The Woodbridge/Neabsco precincts don’t turn out in the numbers that Manassas/Bristow/Nokesville will in an odd-year election.

    A part of the Bristow & Nokesville areas were kept in this district just to connect to Chuck’s old address.

    Run Jackson, Run!

    Yes, the district became more Democratic. As I understand it, McDonnell only won it with 55% of the vote 2 years ago. :)

    To clarify, that 55% is with the NEW lines.

    Would love to see Jackson Miller as our new senator! Would even volunteer to help him get elected. Anyone else on board for this?

    Redistricting must have changed the plans Jackson had previously. He is now being been very clear about the fact that he has decided not to run. We will have to find someone else althought I don’t know who lives in this new district. Brickley will probably be the democrat in the race.

    I would support and help Jackson should he run. Senator Colgan was a good senator and I hope he enjoys retirement.

    “Redistricting must have changed the plans Jackson had previously.”

    I think the plans were the same all along.

    Jackson’s website still has verbiage about the 50th district. Not a good sign.

    Jackson talked about running for the senate for at least a year.

    He isn’t going to.

    If Colgan runs unopposed: it is a direct result of Jackson not doing what he said he would. Should Jackson run for this seat in the future, I’m of a mind to not support him.

    “Del. Jackson Miller (R-50th Dist.) spoke at tonight’s PWC GOP meeting and the big news after the meeting ended was word that Miller is running in 2011 for the state senate seat currently held by Chuck Colgan. I was able to confirm with Del. Miller that he is indeed running for the 29th State Senate Dist. next year.

    This is excellent news for the GOP as it looks to recapture the state senate in 2011. Miller has to be considered one of the top recruiting prospects for the party in a district ripe to switch partisan representation. News of this will probably keep Colgan on his glide path towards retirement rather than staying to fight for another term despite the pleas from his fellow Democrats.”
