  • Statement from Dem Party of VA Chairman Dickie Cranwell

    11/03/2010 11:24:47 AM PDT · by Gopher Broke · 6 replies
    Don’t Stop Fighting Dear Friends, I’m writing to thank you for all of your hard work over the past year. This was a difficult election to be sure, but thanks to you we helped send Reps. Jim Moran and Bobby Scott back to Congress, it looks like Rep. Gerry Connolly will be headed back as well, and we put up a great fight on behalf of Rick Boucher, Tom Perriello, Glenn Nye and the rest of our congressional ticket. Reps. Boucher, Perriello and Nye deserve our thanks for their honorable service to this Commonwealth. They did the best they could...
  • Kaine taking Va. losses 'personally' [Dead man walking!]

    Politico ^ | November 2, 2010 | Sara Libby
    Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine refused to begin the finger-pointing on "who lost the House," but it is likely to become a full-fledged fight between the White House and Capitol Hill Democrats once the full extent of Tuesday's losses are known. (snip) Kaine, the former Virginia governor, also lamented the loss of at least three House seats in the "Old Dominion" to Republicans, saying he felt the defeats of Reps. Rick Boucher, Glenn Nye and Tom Perriello "personally."

    Veteran Rep. Rick Boucher (D-Va.) — a leading coal-state negotiator in last year’s House cap-and-trade debate — has lost his reelection bid against Republican Morgan Griffith in perhaps the first real surprise of the evening.

    Connolly carried this district in 2008 by a pretty wide margin of 11.7% (54.7% - 43.0%). With 57.14% reporting, Fimian holds a narrow lead (49.26% - 48.67%). Based on what I know about Fairfax politics, I'm not optimistic Fimian holds on, but I can hope.

    The award for Most Enthusiastic Republican Activist of the 2010 cycle goes to... Daniel Patrick Head, of northern Virginia, who's support for Kieth Fimian in the 11th district stops only at the limitations of his kitchen pantry and underwear drawer. At about 2:30 this morning I awoke to random flashing lights in front of my house. Living on a major street [in northern Virginia], I looked through my curtains to see a car pulled up to my yard and a bunch of people trying to remove my giant Fimian sign. Without much of a second thought, I was out of...

    Americans for Prosperty YouTube Video ^ | 29 October 2010 | Americans for Prosperity Virginia
    Tom Perriello is a first term Democrat representing the 5th district of Virginia, in the central to central-western portion of Virginia. He is an Obama supporting liberal Democrat..... The YouTube footage shows Americans For Prosperity backers trying to hand out "Socialism Isn't Cool" bumper stickers to Perriello supporters waiting in line at a Perriello rally in downtown Charlottesville, Virginia..... Of note here in the YouTube video are the remarks made by the middle class, educated, politically astute and fashionably left wing rally-goers in central Virginia. (The University of Virginia is located in Charlottesville. The outdoor downtown mall area where this...

    Via J.P. Freire at the Examiner, a supporter of Democrat congressional candidate Tom Perriello and Barack Obama demonstrates a little, ahem, “insane rage” that won’t be spotlighted on the nightly news or decried on the NYTimes op-ed page. Maybe he’ll get a guest hosting spot on The View or an honorary membership to the New Black Panther Party… Especially love how he screams “You f**king House nigger white-black bitch!” at a black GOP woman and then turns around and screams “RAAAAACIST!” at her and the rest of the peaceful conservative activists peacefully sitting together in their yard.See also: Unhinged.Strap in...

    Here are some Tom Periello (Dem-Virginia and just visited by Obama) supporters attacking an Americans for Prosperity Rally Before It Started. This is the result of Obama and his race baiting, calling people enemies to be punished and talking about the back of the Bus.

In the Fairfax-based 11th District, Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D) is trying to fend off Oakton businessman Keith Fimian (R). In the 5th District, Rep. Tom Perriello (D) welcomed President Obama to Charlottesville Friday for his uphill race against state Sen. Robert Hurt (R). In the Hampton Roads region, Rep.

  • Poll: Boucher & Griffith in dead heat for 9th District (VA-9)

    Just a few weeks ago, Boucher appeared to be cruising to another term with double-digit leads. Now the race is too close to call, as independents have shifted their votes to Griffith, and Boucher's lead among women has evaporated. With a week to go to the Congressional Elections, the uncertainty is building for Democrats, even in Southwest Virginia's 9th District. The latest News7 SurveyUSA poll released Tuesday morning shows a dead heat between long-time incumbent Rick Boucher and Republican Morgan Griffith. Just a few weeks ago, Boucher appeared to be cruising to another term with double-digit leads. Now the race...

    Twenty-four years in the military doesn't count as public service, at least according to Virginia Democratic Congressman Jim Moran. In a video that's gone viral online, Moran is heard telling a Democratic gathering earlier this month that his opponent, Republican Patrick Murray, is just another unqualified GOP candidate. "What [Republicans] do is find candidates, usually stealth candidates, that haven't been in office, haven't served or performed in any kind of public service," Moran said. "My opponent is typical, frankly." The trouble is, Murray is a retired Army colonel with 24 years of service--including combat in Iraq. The idea that such...

    Perriello All Out Efforts by Faith N Country on Sunday, October 24, 2010 at 9:33pm MoveOn.org had a blitz this weekend asking for people to step forward and host a "Save out Heroes" house parties. They wanted to recruit volunteers to help get out the vote for their heroes. They were setting goals of 500 parties and 150,000 phone calls nationwide. They have listed people like Senator Feingold, Senator Boxer and Representative Perriello, "who stood tall against Big Insurance during the health care debate." MoveOn is now calling Mr. One Term a "hero." Is a "hero" someone who will continue...
