Party like it’s 1993!

George Allen, re-candidate for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate in 2012, has named his 1993 gubernatorial campaign manager [2], Mike Thomas, to reprise the role.

“Mike has the necessary experience and personal knowledge of Virginia, its people, and our values to lead our grassroots insurgency. His addition makes our team even stronger, and together we will build a campaign focused on bringing Virginia’s voices, views and values back to the U.S. Senate.”

In other words, he’s an ass-kicker.

Naming Thomas, a senior VP at McGuireWoods (stepping-down) and vice chair of the Republican Party of Virginia, shows Allen is dead serious about this nomination fight and will take no prisoners.
