  • Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore not giving up longshot presidential bid

    Virginia Pilot ^ | 2-4-16 | Bill Bartel
    It doesn’t matter to Jim Gilmore that only 12 Iowans voted for him during Monday night’s caucuses. “We didn’t expect any vote in Iowa because we didn’t ask for any votes in Iowa,” the former Virginia governor said during a phone interview Thursday. “I’m starting the campaign in New Hampshire where I am right now.” Gilmore, 66, has received little or no support in recent voter polls nationally or in New Hampshire. He acknowledged that some have made light of his long shot bid for the White House. But he stresses he’s dead serious. “I am the right candidate. I...

    One of the two Virginia Tech students facing charges in connection with the alleged abduction and fatal stabbing of a 13-year-old girl had her bond request denied today as investigators said she admitted to planning the alleged murder. Natalie Keepers, 19, broke down on the stand today in court as prosecutors detailed what she told investigators. "I was excited to be part of something secretive and special," Keepers told FBI investigators, according to commonwealth prosecutor Mary Pettitt. Keepers told police she bought a shovel with David Eisenhauer, the other Virginia Tech student who has been arrested in the case, before...

    Cruz’s numbers here aren’t a shock — he’s been in the high teens and low twenties for awhile — but Trump hasn’t dipped as low as 25 percent in a national poll since November and Rubio hasn’t seen a number as high as 21 percent since … ever. That makes some righty poll-watchers nervous since PPP’s credibility has been attacked in the past. Not only are they liberal, they were the subject of a famous critique of their methodology by Nate Cohn in TNR a few years ago. If you’re looking to throw out this result, which no other...

    Natalie Marie Keepers was denied bond on Thursday as prosecutors presented evidence that she plotted to kill and hide the body of 13-year-old Nicole Lovell. Virginia Tech students Keepers, 19, and David Eisenhauer, 18, worked together to draw up a sophisticated plan to kill Nicole Lovell, prosecutors said.They bought a shovel, picked out a location together in a calculated move, Montgomery County Commonwealth's Attorney Mary Pettitt said during the hearing. The plan was for Eisenhauer, charged with Lovell's abduction and murder, to lure Lovell out of the home on the guise of the date. They would take her to the...

    Hillary Clinton wants to makes something very clear about her and Donald Trump: "We were not friends." "We knew each other, obviously, in New York," she told People magazine in an interview released on Wednesday. "I knew a lot of people." With daughter Chelsea by her side, the former secretary of state dismissed Trump's recent comments about her husband's infidelity. Trump has said that former President Bill Clinton is "one of the great abusers" of women. Clinton shrugged off Trump's comments as "politics," though not "the brand I approve of."

He has visited several mosques overseas as president but has resisted visiting one in the homeland. The purpose of the trip, according to the White House, is to "celebrate the contributions Muslim Americans make to our nation and reaffirm the importance of religious freedom to our way of life." But ISB is a curious...

    The U.S. Forest Service has rejected the latest proposed route of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline because of the 42-inch natural gas pipeline's potential damage to the habitat of sensitive animal species protected by two national forests in Virginia and West Virginia.

Consequently, the pipeline project...

    I was water-skiing with my children in a light drizzle off Hyannis, Mass., last month when a sudden, fierce storm plunged us into a melee of towering waves, raking rain, painful hail and midday darkness broken by blinding flashes of lightning. As I hurried to get my children out of the water and back to the dock, I shouted over the roaring wind, "This is some kind of tornado." The fog consolidated and a waterspout hundreds of feet high rose from the white ocean and darted across its surface, landing for a moment on a moored outboard to spin it...

    RUSH: I'm looking at this Trump campaign. You know, every day, the Trump campaign... What's the way to put this? Every day the Trump campaign gains a little more substance in the eyes of observers. What I mean by this is before Trump even got in the race, the smart money said, "He's not gonna run. He's just gonna tempt people with it and tease people, raise ratings for his TV show and this sort of thing. He'll never release his financial data on that form they all have to fill out." Then he did all that. Then it became,...

    WASHINGTON (WJZ)—The D.C. Metro area got a nasty taste of what’s to come this weekend. Chaos on the roads with just an inch of snow last night. If Wednesday night is any indication of what we’ll see this weekend, then you need to start planning ahead and avoid being outside at all costs. On Wednesday traffic at a standstill for miles. Collisions and spin outs, all from an inch of snow and black ice that coated the DC area. It’s an ugly preview of what’s to come this weekend when we’re expected to be pounded with two feet of snow....

    RICHMOND - A Virginia Senate panel on Wednesday scrapped a raft of gun-control bills while advancing measures intended to expand gun rights. Among the legislation was one, proposed by Sen. George L. Barker (D-Fairfax), that would have created a way for authorities to remove firearms from people deemed by a Circuit Court judge to be at "substantial risk" of injury to themselves or others. "There are people slipping through the cracks who are a danger," said Lori Haas, a gun-safety activist whose daughter was injured in the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre. "It is not meant to send somebody into your...

    Blizzard warnings have been issued for the Baltimore and Washington D.C. metro areas, and blizzard watches extend northward to the Philadelphia and New York City metro areas as Winter Storm Jonas begins to take shape. The storm is expected to deliver heavy snowfall to at least 15 states, and heavy ice accumulations, strong winds and coastal flooding will add to the storm's impact as it carves a path from the nation's heartland through the South and onward to the East Coast now through Sunday. As of Thursday morning, just over 73 million people – or roughly one in every four...

    Republican lawmakers on Virginia's Senate Courts of Justice Committee defied Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) by passing a bill on January 20 to allow concealed carry in the state without a permit. Currently, Alaska, Arizona, Kansas, Maine, Montana, Vermont, and Wyoming allow concealed carry without a permit. According to Fredericksburg.com, Republican lawmakers also struck down a bill supported by McAuliffe intended to "require background checks on all gun buyers at gun shows." McAuliffe has been pushing for such an expansion from the time he assumed the governor’s office.
