The truth (is now) out there. Contrary to his recent claims to the contrary, Shaun Kenny is actually on the Eric Cantor and Barbara Comstock payroll, and doubtless we will discover in short order what exactly his financial relationships with Ed Gillespie is as well. Secrets don’t last very long in politics, and lies have a […]
Yeah, just in case anyone was under the impression that our new Executive Director of the Republican Party of Virginia was serving the interests of Virginia Republicans by inviting these folks into his headquarters for an unprecedented “unscheduled” meeting, here’s what “Fast For Families” is touting on their twitter feed.
Sure, it’s a good idea to […]
The newly-minted Executive Director of the Republican Party of Virginia sure didn’t waste any time looking for a conservative pulpit to talk about Republican values.
“This is not an issue of right or left, this is an issue of right and wrong. And that’s what we need to hear… If we are going to have any sort […]
As the Communications Arm of the Barbara Comstock campaign continues in their drive to crucify anyone who stands in the way of Comstock’s coronation, we might want to step back for a moment and consider just what the long-term impact might be of this new, leftist-style penchant for wanting to destroy good and decent conservatives with whom […]

Catch the broadcast of Ken Cuccinelli’s final “Get Out The Vote” Rally right here, starting at 8:30PM.
Share this one with everyone you know.
E. W. Jackson visited Old Town Manassas this week and spoke to volunteers and activists about his campaign and his vision for Virginia. This is the guy that some liberals are trying to characterize as some sort of monster, but the truth is quite obviously rather different. Jackson is one of the most […]
Meet the 2013 ticket! Here’s videos of the speeches filmed at the Fairfax rally that was part of the RPV Fly Around that kicked off the day after the Republican Convention.
Ken Cuccinelli for Governor
Delegates going to the Republican Convention in Richmond this weekend are still reeling under all the direct mail, phone calls and email messages the seven Lieutenant Governor and two Attorney General campaigns have been putting out in earnest over the past couple of weeks and having a hard time sorting it all that information out. […]
The Manassas GOP joins the Prince William County Republican Committee in getting their call for a delegate selection process for the 2013 State Republican Convention out the door, and as usual all we hear from the Manassas Park Republican Committee is silence. Those patiently waiting for an update to the Manassas Park Republican Committee’s website for any kind […]
According to NLS, staffers for Jeanmarie Devolites-Davis have been offering bribes to get voters to sign up for the 2013 Republican Convention as delegates for her. As if working overtime to deprive you of your constitutionally-protected right to self-defense wasn’t enough for her, now her campaign is violating Virginia law in an attempt to harm […]
Scott Lingamfelter has bumped up against the folks that can’t distinguish between the principles of libertarianism and the cult of personality that surrounds Ron Paul. In chastising Ron Paul for his recent comment of “live by the sword, die by the sword” about the recent death of a decorated serviceman, a legion of Ron Paul supporters have […]
Sometimes, YouTube is a dubious friend.
In this instance, Lieutenant Governor candidate Pete Snyder posted a video on YouTube, and it helpfully suggested some other “related” videos that I might be interested in watching after I finished with Pete. In this case, there are some news clips, something about a swine flu panic, a cow, a […]
I wanted to get a read on which of the candidates for Lieutenant Governor actually have a serious shot at securing the Republican nomination, so I put up a poll last week. Not that there’s much reason to think that a poll on this one blog, one with a local rather than state-level readership would […]
…that he will not run for Governor in 2013 tomorrow. That leaves only Tareq Salahi (provided he meets filing requirements) as the only opponent to Ken Cuccinelli for the Republican nomination for Governor. The RPV Advance will become one big Cuccinelli victory party.
Bolling has been polling way behind Cuccinelli, usually by about 30 - 40 […]
With Republicans gearing up for the Advance it’s time to check the political weather with these polls for Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General. I wonder if there will be any surprises here…
Who do you support for Governor?
Tareq “Gate Crasher” Salahi
Who do you support for Lt. […]
For a while there in 2012 it seemed that if you randomly tossed a rock in Virginia it would likely hit someone either running for US Senate, or considering a run. The experienced, the known, the inexperienced and people no one had ever heard of all decided to run in that race. This year the […]
Candidates and campaigns win elections in the environment that exists while voting is conducted. While that statement isn’t terribly revealing it points out the three primary components of an outcome. Activists like myself can’t change the candidates (at least after they’re nominated), the environment is largely out of our control, but we do impact campaigns […]
With the kind of enthusiastic crowd I saw in Fairfax today, I’m pretty hopeful for a Romney and Allen win in Virginia!
The WashPo reports that Delegate Scott Lingamfelter has filed paperwork to run for Lieutenant Governor in 2013 and setting up an interesting case where two candidates from the same locality are vying for the same statewide office. This certainly invites other potential candidates from elsewhere around the state to enter the race, perhaps as many as three […]
