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 […]
There’s a storm brewing in Loudoun County, and it’s just utterly awful. For some reason I can’t fathom, the Sheriff’s race has become the most prominently blogged about contest in the County, even while far more critical races for State Senate, House of Delegates and the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors are happening that vastly […]
I think it’s time to pack up this campaign. The stories have gone from terrible, to simply, outrageously horrible.
Shawn Mitchell, the Democrat running in the 13th Senate District, wants you to believe he’s some sort of “moderate,” and doesn’t even put the word “Democrat” on his campaign mailers. In person he’s very different than this false image.
If you like what Barack Obama has done to our economy, our federal deficit, and in […]
Tonight’s debates between Bob Marshall and Carl Genthner, and between Dick Black and Shawn Miller were rather amusing. Both of these races are between strong, experienced conservatives and starry-eyed Obama supporters bearing no meaningful resume. Many thanks to the Prince William Committee of 100 for sponsoring tonight’s event, as otherwise there would be no opportunity […]
Shawn Mitchell, the Democrat running in the 13th Senate District, sure has a lot of explaining to do. You’d think that someone touting their business credentials would actually have a good business record to run on rather than a history littered with stealing from their employers. The Washington Times ran an article on this the […]
Until I had a chance to sit down with Janet Clarke, I had no idea how inspiring her story was. I really hope she gets the nod in November. See if you can help get her over the top, folks!
