Sickening the way they shut out the other candidates.
Republican George Allen, trying to regain the seat he lost in 2006 to Democrat Jim Webb, and Tim Kaine, who served more than two years as Democratic National Committee chairman,
So did Allen lose to Webb and Kaine in 2006 or is he running against two people. I did not know two people could serve as senator..
I believe tea parties from Virginia are going there to protest.
Please consider joining them if you are able.
The Tea Party will be protesting.
I wish I could be there but I have to work to pay for the occupiers.
Sorry for the late notice.
The Tea Party will be protesting. Go if you can.
I'm just axing, I'm from PA and our guys are currently wandering around in the wilderness for at least 40 more days and nights.
The Tea Party is behind Jamie Radke, who has been campaigning tirelessly in the Republican Primary.
