Tomorrow, Virginians will head to the polls to elect not only the next Governor of Virginia, but also to elect two other statewide officeholders in the Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General of Virginia. I’ll address the former here, and the latter in another post. The position of Lt. Governor is important for two reasons. First […]
While Bob McDonnell, Bill Bolling and Ken Cuccinelli wrap up the campaign with a 7-stop rally tour ending in Virginia Beach at the Sandler Center, the closest the Democrats are coming to Hampton Roads is Richmond. Have the Democrats completely written off Hampton Roads and abandoned the Democrat delegates who are hanging by threads here? […]
Bobby Mathieson can’t answer a direct question. Joe Bouchard has become a tool for the left. Paula Miller still hasn’t proposed a bill in Richmond. And, Robin Abbott can’t have her law-firm payoff Steve Shannon fast enough. And that’s just in Hampton Roads. And these were supposed to be slam-dunk wins for the Dems. Now, […]

In less than 48 hours, Election Day 2009 will be in the books and either Democrat Creigh Deeds or Republican Bob McDonnell will be elected the 71st Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. While many Virginians have already made up their minds about which candidate will receive their vote, invariably there are still some Virginians […]
Bob speaks with passion about the turnout in the Commonwealth. 47% in 2005 here. In Iraq while Jeanine served, over 70% voted despite the challenges. Get people involved, get Hampton Roads out. The only thing that matters is the 13 hours on Tuesday.
Cuccinelli with warm introduction, fires up the crowd. Warms up for the next Governor of Virginia… Bob McDonnell takes the floor with a huge round of cheers and applause. Lots of young people in the crowd, teenagers and young adults, Bob says great to see the next generation involving themselves. Excited about Maureen becoming First […]
