A first-time politician who lost his girlfriend to gun violence has defeated the National Rifle Association-backed incumbent in a state house race in Virginia....
Hursts girlfriend, 24-year-old journalist Alison Parker, was shot dead on live television during a routine morning broadcast in 2015, along with WDBJ7 cameraman Adam Ward. Parker had been quietly dating Hurst, another reporter at the station....
....On Tuesday, Hurst won with 54% of the vote to defeat Joseph Yost, an incumbent with an A-rating from the NRA.

You all probably remember the case from a couple of years ago. The girl was reporting on live TV, interviewing a woman at a zoo or something when the lunatic shows up and kills her on the air.
So the boyfriend, another reporter at the same station, is now a legislator in Virginia.
Folks, local elections matter.
let me guess, big anti gun backing I would guess...
yes, they do, a lot!
She was murdered by a militant left wing black homosexual...
Funny how that never came up.
A cynical move by local Democrats who knew they could count on a strong sympathy vote for Hurst.
Oh, I’m sure he’s more than qualified to draft legislation and turn to on micromanaging our lives.
That may well be fact but if it weren’t for that damned gun.............. You know the spiel.
Yup. But it was the NRA’s fault.
Yes, because he is a “journalist” he knows more than the rest of us.
Looks like its going to be a fifty/fifty split in the Virginia House of Delegates
I remember this case it was that Black Flag who repeatedly emailed his bag friend:
“Dude, I can’t score, anymore..!”
he was mad about it and went and killed a bunch of folks.
I guess when you can’t get laid at the highway rest stop it must be insulting or something..?
Bag + flag = fag
Wrath of voice recognition
Sympathy vote and Gabby Giffords/Bloomberg and other antis contributed ton$$ to this election.
BUT, the homo creep used a GUN!
Hey, it would have been hard for the media to uncover an obscure set of facts like that, since there’s actual video of the killer killing them. /sarc
I saw that case on IDTV. If I recall correctly, wasn’t it a black guy that showed signs of instability but people were afraid to act and be called a racist?
1 in 9 Virginians is not from this country. Open borders people have sold us all out. They have to go back.
She must’ve been a lousy reporter.
He was a THREE-FER...................
“She was murdered by a militant left wing black homosexual.”
Time to ban the rainbow flag!
After all, there was a big push to ban the Confederate flag when Dylan Roof murdered the black churchgoers in Charleston.
