Jackson Miller gets a party leadership spot as House Majority Whip, and the conviction I’ve held about this Delegate since 2006 starts getting proven: this is an elected official who is going somewhere. That, and Manassas has just gained some legislative clout that’s going to come in handy when Chuck Colgan finally steps down.
Given that Delegate Tim Hugo, who is clearly destined for bigger things in the near term, is helping fellow conservative Jackson Miller raise his prominence and potentially position himself for his next opportunity, this sets up an interesting dynamic. Within the next few years Hugo moves to Congress or some other appropriate venue for his talents, Miller replaces Colgan in the 29th Senate District, Cuccinelli makes his move to Governor or US Senate, and conservatives like these build a long-lasting power center in Northern Virginia.
I like that. A lot.
