The Score this week: gas tax hikes, AG candidates and searching for the Big Idea

On this podcast edition of “The Score” radio show…

Scott Lee talks with AFP’s Audrey Jackson about the proposed increase in Virginia’s gas tax. Needless to say, the prospect doesn’t sit well. And remember the days when folks talked about locking up the transportation trust fund before even considering more transportation revenue? Funny how that’s not on the agenda any longer.

I take the mic for a couple of interviews with Sen. Mark Obenshain and Del. Rob Bell. Both are seeking the GOP’s nomination for attorney general next year and, truth be told, each would make a fine candidate. They give us their reasons for running, talk about what it’s like to run against a colleague, and the general mood of Republicans in the wake of the November election debacle.

And in his Two Minute Drill, Jim Hoeft is on the lookout for boldness — what some might even call The Big Idea — in the Republicans’ legislative agenda for this session.

If their biggest idea is a tax hike, heaven help them all come election day.
