All three have Tea Party support. Jackson has been a regular speaker at TP events in Virginia. All three are good, strong conservatives. This is going to be an unvarnished test as to where Virginia stands politically.

Jackson is a gadfly candidate who lacks money and an organization. He is not the real deal. He will be running against a Dem candidate who will demolish him. My real concern is that Jackson will be a drag on the rest of the ticket. Ken is strong with the Tea Party, but that may also act as motivation for the Dems to turn out in larger numbers.

Jackson has a record of business bankruptcies and tax liens too. He's a good orator, but I agree he has little chance and may be a serious drag on the rest of the ticket. Jackson is the kind of guy who has a future on talk radio, not actual elected office. I really wish conservative grass roots voters would understand the difference.

Jackson is not the best candidate to represent strong conservatism. He speaks in platitudes and lacks substance on the issues. He will be exposed by Chopra and the Dems.

Agree on all points. I’m not into identity politics, and I don’t have much patience with some conservatives’ excitement over minority candidates BECAUSE they’re minorities. IMO, some of the buzz over Herman Cain fell into that category, but he proved he just wasn’t ready.

I’m not interested in proving I’m not a racist. I couldn’t care less if someone thinks I’m one. I want a good, solid conservative to vote for. If he happens to be black or Hispanic, that’s fine, but it’s immaterial to me, really. The more I see of Cruz, the more I like him, and Allen West is at the top of my list, but race and heritage don’t factor into it.

What we need to do in Virginia is to remind the voters that the ‘Rat b@sterds are running on the same ticket with Kermit Gosnell and Lois Lerner.

I did. I was pleasantly surprised.

Cuccillini, Jackson, and Mark Obenshain for AG (son of Dick).

Sounds like a winning ticket to me. Expect the rats to take mud slinging to a new level.

It’s already begun with headlines like “EW Jackson complicates Cuccinelli bid”.

Well, that makes more sense than 2 tea party men walking hand-in-hand haha. They had those flyers printed up a long time in advance and he double-crossed them or what?

I would guess that the flyers were printed up ahead of time. Corey Stewart has said that he never endorsed Pete Snyder and when he saw the flyers, he immediately went to the floor to see E. W. Jackson. Pete's folks said that he did, then backed out. The flyers stating Senator Mark Obenshain endorsed Pete Snyder were false too according to Mark. Someone has some explaining to do.
