During the past few months potential Republican challengers in the 2015 elections have been dropping like flies, and that continued today with an announcement by Jim Riley that he’s not going to challenge Maureen Caddigan for the Potomac District seat on the Board of Supervisors. Right amidst an unprecedented wave of voter outrage against political […]
Nothing makes you feel more at home at a public candidate debate than to have an officer of the Prince William Committee of 100 invite you to photograph his balls.
PWC Democratic Chairman Harry Wiggins had the pleasure of receiving a delegation of Chinese Communist Party members today, May Day 2013.
I have to wonder just who learned more during that exchange.
Well, that sure was a quick campaign. Donna Sellinger, whose campaign kickoff was just last Sunday, has announced on twitter tonight that she will no longer be seeking election in the 13th House District. This is the second Democrat candidate in two weeks to begin and end their campaign in this district without any public […]
Campaigns in Prince William County are getting in gear as filing deadlines rapidly approach. Looking at the progress candidates have made (or not) gives us a good idea of just who is serious about winning, and who is not. Here’s the breakdown:
How nice. It appears that Senator Mark Warner paid a visit to the homeless people who have been removed from alongside Interstate 95 in Dale City to bolster their spirits now that they’ve been booted out of their campsite. Here Senator Warner consoles a clearly disturbed homeless individual, and even gives the guy something to […]
So according to the Gainesville Times, Gary Friedman has decided to abandon his bid for Chairman of the Board of Supervisors. Not too surprising with the leadership of the PWCDC arrayed so defiantly against probably their most qualified challenger candidate for any office in years. They told donors to stay away from Friedman’s campaign. They […]
When Ben Tribbett talks about the candidates Democrats have been ponying up in Prince William County as “Grandparents Gone Wild“, does anyone besides me get the impression that he’s referring to newly minted PWCDC Chairman Bruce Roemmelt or perhaps Jeanette “Moonfruit” Rishell? It sure seems to fit. So now Dems have a new neophyte candidate […]
Oh, happy, happy day! The Prince William County Democratic Committee has chosen none other than Bruce Roemmelt to be their new chairman, after apparently tiring of the remarkably adult supervision of Pete Frisbee. If having radical, homosexual lobby pandering unitarians as opposing candidates when you’re a Republican weren’t enough of a gift, now the whole […]
After winning Prince William County for Barack Obama last year, local Democrats were emboldened and began searching far and wide for candidates to run for the General Assembly in 2009. And the results? Democrats recruited challenges to Delegates Jackson Miller (the usual Jeanette Rishell, a 2-time loser) and Bob Marshall (an opponent not […]
Gainesville Times reporter Dan Roem came up with an interesting interview with PWCDC Chairman Peter Frisbee regarding the upcoming local races for seats in the House of Delegates, focusing predictably on the candidates that the local Democrats are ponying up. The list is as fascinating for who isn’t on it as well as who is. […]
Although the source here has absolutely no credibility whatsoever, being little more than a psychopath nutball himself, Manes Pierre’s recent letter to the editor seems to suggest that PWCDC Committee Chairman Peter Frisbie has been conducting character assassinations of competing interests in the Democratic Party using blogs. It would be interesting to see if there’s […]
Gary Friedman has an interesting letter to the editor in today’s MJM that gives county Democrats a partial roadmap back into political relevance in the county which follows a pretty honest assessment of what happened in the last election cycle. It would not surprise me one bit that county Democrats decide to ignore this free […]
Last year, Jeanette Rishell had to bring in a field director from New Hampshire during the last few months of her campaign in order to help out her campaign. This year, Riley is reporting that Senator Chuck Colgan finds the local pickings so meager that he has had to hire folks from Maryland and New […]

Yes, Woodbridge Democrats, you get a primary, too. There’s Hilda Barg’s anointed successor Frank Principi. Then there’s George Delimba, a former PWCDC Chair much reviled for what he did to the local party when masquerading as it’s leader. The race between Frank Principi and George Delimba can pretty much be summed up in the […]
I’ve heard that there is quite a bit of excitement within the ranks of Prince William County Democrats these days, although not the kind of excitement I think they’d really want. Half of Jeff Dion’s “kitchen cabinet” is telling Jeff to withdraw his candidacy. Paul Nichols, his opponent for the Democratic nomination in […]
The Prince William County Democratic Committee has issued it’s own call for a convention for the 51st District to be held on June 2nd. Candidates must file by May 22nd, and pay a $1,000 filing fee, which is low by PWCDC standards. Delegate forms are due by May 29th. Of note is that the delegate […]
From the looks of their new website, the Prince William County Democratic Committee seems to be focusing on a couple of School Board races and the Greg Galligan primary campaign in the 39th Senate District. In order to attract volunteers to work on these initiatives, it seems they have to resort to some unusual […]
The Gainesville Times has an amusing letter to the editor from James Walkinshaw, who is the Gainesville chairman of the PWCDC and Jeff Dion’s former campaign manager. Clearly concerned about public perceptions of disarray and confusion within the county democrats, he stretches long and hard to try to reassure his demoralized fellow travellers and […]
