Frank Wolf has announced he will not seek re-election in 2014, which is guaranteed to kick off quite a contest to see who the Republican nominee will be.
Does Barbara Comstock have this locked down, or will there actually be a contest? We’re going to find out pretty soon.
UPDATE: Dick Black is looking at a run […]
Subject to a recount, Senator Mark Herring has been elected Attorney General of Virginia and Senator Ralph Northam has been elected as Lieutenant Governor. That these “progressive” warriors will exercise executive and legislative power in Virginia is a sobering thing, but there’s a chance to limit the havoc they’ll be able to wreak by flipping […]
Ken Cuccinelli delivered these remarks at the Rally Against The Bi-County Parkway (which I refer to as the Outer Beltway), making it very clear that this November we have a choice for Governor between one person who stands with people, and another whom stands for anyone willing to cut him a check.
The defeat of House Transportation Committee Chairman Joe May by Dave Larock in the 33rd District is being touted by some as an unprecedented revolt by the grassroots against Republican tax-hikers. It is not. Back in 2003, then-House Transportation Committee Chairman Jack Rollison was defeated in a primary by Jeff Frederick after Rollison played the […]
With porn shop owner Paige Critchley announcing her support for the Joe May campaign in a comment here on BVBL, we thought it might be a nice gesture to offer the May campaign some graphic design help with their next mail piece which really ought to feature this surprise development. It’s not every day that […]
I had no doubt the Joe May-Dave LaRock primary campaign was going to get a bit testy with a June 11th primary coming up so quickly. Recently that testiness got somewhat bizarre as the campaigns traded charges and counter-charges that are hard for the average voter to make much sense of, so we’re going to […]
We’ve talked a lot about transportation during the past decade at the state and local level, and we’ve poured a huge amount of borrowed money and tax increases into funding transportation. Is any of that going to actually solve anything?
Over 350 people show up to hear VDOT explain how they’re going to be screwed
Yesterday’s Gainesville District Town Hall meeting at Bull Run Middle School was a perfect demonstration of how citizens react when government agencies seem to threaten their quality of life and don’t appear to be very interested in addressing their concerns. Supervisor […]
If the redistricting bill passes this session, I will be in the 13th Senate District in 2015, which is currently represented by Senator Dick Black. This video of his reaction to abortion supporters celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade makes me especially excited about this possibility.
I thank God for people like this who […]
In honor of the great work done by a fellow blogger at Sheriff of Nottingham the past couple of weeks, I though it might be a good time to give a shout-out to the elected officials who are doing a great job for their constituents lately as well as those who are falling quite short of the […]
“Hey, wait a minute! Ken wasn’t on the ballot in the 10th. He wasn’t even a write-in!”
Yes, I know that. But he still won. And not only won, he absolutely crushed, and not only in the 10th District.
It would appear that Anna Lee has informally “suspended” her campaign for Chairman of the 10th District Committee. Although no formal announcement has been made, her decision to boycott all meetings of the FCRC after it decided it couldn’t hire her daughter for a staff position because of her school schedule, her absence at recent […]
Claims, charges and counter-charges are flying thick and fast between those involved in the FEC complaint filed against the 10th District committee, and keeping up with this while maintaining some perspective is a real challenge. In a nutshell, we have a situation that wasn’t great to begin with made tremendously worse which is devolving the […]
I have heard that Anna Lee and Tom Whitmore filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission claiming financial irregularities by 10th District Chairman Howie Lind and Treasurer Shak Hill yesterday. I have not seen the complaint, nor is it available on the FEC website. Too Conservative has posted about questions involving 10th District finances in […]
Here’s one of the 20 messages sent to Senator Dick Black by pro-abortion activists recently:
Here is my wish for you: May it be your granddaughter who is found in filthy back room, dead in a pool of her own blood, a rusty coathanger sticking out of her vagina.
How can I possibly be inhabiting the same […]
2011 was entirely boring and uneventful in Northern Virginia. Nothing at all of interest happened, except for floods, earthquakes, a furiously silly election season, the biggest historical reenactment and anniversary in 50 years, mass murders, redistricting, and well, okay. So 2011 wasn’t exactly boring.
With apologies to Dave Barry, here we go…
This was a race that shouldn’t have been anywhere near close. A strong conservative, running in a highly conservative district encompassing a swath of mostly Loudoun County and some of Prince William County, narrowly ekes out a 51 vote victory margin against a no-name liberal who runs a weak campaign amidst the biggest Republican wave […]
Quite a few surprises happened last night, and I’m still going through the mounds of results, but here are some of the things I think are worth noting early.
Lots of campaign activity across Northern Virginia, especially with Governor McDonnell, Lieutenant Governor Bolling, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, RPV Chairman Pat Mullins and Senate Minority Leader Tommy Norment swinging by campaign rallies across the area this weekend. As these races enter their final days, some races are tightening and you have an opportunity to make […]
Speaking of the State Senate, here’s one candidate to watch. It’s not on many of the radar screens of the political insiders as a likely flip, but Patricia Phillips is running a strong campaign against an incumbent that no one seems to care much for. In an election cycle like this, Patricia could […]
