    Journalist and former MSNBC host Touré confronted Virginia GOP Senate candidate Corey Stewart for saying “people are sick and tired of talking about race all the time.” Touré, joining Stewart and guest host Rev. Al Sharpton during Saturday’s edition of “AM Joy,” challenged Stewart on his comments, saying that race was part of "everything" in the U.S. “This is a white supremacist country and we have to deal with that in every way — in how we relate to the police, in how we relate to jobs, how we relate to the criminal justice everything — everything,” Touré said. “And...

    The intrusion took place at Bell Stonebridge Apartments in Woodbridge, VA. “Working in politics, you become accustomed to the rough-and-tumble nature of the sport. But never in a million years could I have anticipated the New York Times sending a reporter to break into my apartment looking for a story. We’re working with police investigators, and look forward to justice being served,” Brian Landrum said in a statement. The eyewitness was listening to music when she heard rustling, turned around, and saw a female in Landrum’s kitchen. The woman was turning to leave. The kitchen is 5 to 10 feet...

    LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) Hundreds of people, representing several different groups, gathered in Lexington Saturday for demonstrations sparked by the actions of a restaurant owner. Motorcycles roared down East Washington Street as dozens lined the sidewalk, holding signs with sayings like "The Red Hen laid a rotten egg." Nearly everyone who came out for a series of rallies was there to show support for President Trump, after the owner of the Red Hen asked his chief spokesperson to leave the restaurant more than a week ago. "That was the straw that broke the camel's back and set us off and made...

    A Virginia state delegate for the town where Sarah Huckabee Sanders was refused service Friday night criticized the restaurant owner with the ultimate Trump-country insult — she has ties to Hollywood. Del. Ben Cline, a Republican who also is running for the U.S. House this November, dropped the “Meryl bomb” Saturday in a tweet apologizing to Mrs. Sanders, the chief White House spokeswoman. “On behalf of my hometown of Lexington, I want to apologize for the rudeness of one liberal New York transplant (who also happens to be Meryl Streep’s cousin),” he wrote of restaurateur Stephanie Wilkinson, who since Friday...

    Four days after the owner of the Red Hen restaurant stirred national debate by asking White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave her establishment, all the fire and ire of social media was made flesh at the corners of Washington and Randolph streets. The quaint red restaurant, its dirty green awnings made famous by a disapproving tweet Monday from President Trump, was scheduled to open for dinner service at 5 p.m. Protesters began showing up around 3. At first, it was just two guys holding Trump banners, a Confederate flag and a Corey Stewart for U.S. Senate sign....

    Republican Senate nominee Corey Stewart said that he doesn’t believe that the Civil War was fought over the issue of slavery, arguing that it was mostly about states’ rights. In a Monday interview with Hill.TV’s “Rising,” Stewart, who recently won the GOP nomination in the Virginia Senate race, said that not all parts of Virginia’s history are “pretty.” But he said he doesn’t associate slavery with the war. “I don’t at all. If you look at the history, that’s not what it meant at all, and I don’t believe that the Civil War was ultimately fought over the issue of...

    MAGA candidates were big winners on the June 12th primary, a continuing referendum from working, law-abiding Americans who want their elected representatives to put Americans First. Candidates who strayed from Trump’s agenda or spent more time attacking than working toward the president’s goals, they faced a reckoning. Mark Sanford of South Carolina was the most notable example. Virginia’s U.S. Senate GOP primary was also contentious and the most revealing about the populist trend redefining the Republican Party. It’s bad enough to have a left-wing Sandinista type like Tim Kaine serving as Virginia’s junior senator. It’s worse that Virginia’s Republican Party...
  • Vanity - Vote for Republican/Conservative, Corey Stewart for Senate in Virginia.

    Corey Stewart is the Republican candidate facing "Dim Bulb" Democrat, Senator Tim Kaine for the Senate seat in Virginia. I have no doubt that Stewart will run a terrific, pro-active, effective campaign against the failed, Hillary Clinton, VP choice..."the well known, asleep at the wheel, deadbeat, Democrat, Tim Kaine". Rumblings are heard that the Establishment GOP Senate campaign group will not fund the Stewart race. It's hard to believe....but Stewart can defeat Tim Kaine. It's amazing, because if Stewart takes down Kaine early in the evening of election day, the entire country (who will still be voting) will witness a...

    When the Republican Party elite don’t get their way, they will often retaliate, and that is what we are seeing in Virginia right now. After Corey Stewart defeated his establishment-backed opponent Nick Freitas by a narrow margin in the Republican primary race for US Senate earlier this week, the Republican establishment is now punishing Virginia for its choice. According to the Bull Elephant, Americans for Prosperity (AFP) spent $2.6 million in Virginia on behalf of establishment Republican Ed Gillespie as he tried to defeat Ralph Northam for Governor last year. They will be withholding their big money for Stewart, whose...

    CNN host Chris Cuomo and Virginia Senate candidate Corey Stewart (R) sparred Wednesday night in a heated interview that focused on Stewart’s affiliation with white nationalists. Stewart appeared on “Cuomo Prime Time” one day after he secured the Republican nomination to challenge Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) in November's midterm election. The two men frequently shouted over each other in the interview, with Cuomo repeatedly calling out Stewart’s refusal to condemn white nationalists. “Don’t blame me for being extreme left. Or being some antifa fool," Cuomo said. "It’s your attempt to deny the facts." “This is the biggest joke I’ve heard...

    Rabble-rouser Corey Stewart narrowly took the Virginia GOP Senate primary and shouldn’t look for support from the Senate Republicans campaign arm, Politico reported. “At the Senatorial committee, we’re focusing on Missouri, Indiana, North Dakota, Montana, West Virginia and Florida. There are great races around the country. [Virginia] is not on the map,” Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) told reporters Wednesday, Politico reported. “We have a big map this year, and what I’ve laid out in races that I’ve talked about, Virginia’s not on it.” Republican leaders, who hoped Nick Freitas would defeat Stewart, arrived too late to the party to help...

    WASHINGTON — Prince William County Board Chair Corey Stewart, a bombastic supporter of President Donald Trump, has won the Virginia GOP primary in the U.S. Senate race in a narrow victory over Virginia Del. Nick Freitas. The hard-right firebrand now faces Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine, the Democrats’ 2016 vice presidential nominee and former Virginia governor, who is seeking a second term. Speaking to his supporters gathered Tuesday night in Warrenton, Virginia, Freitas conceded the race and pledged to support Stewart in the general election. The race between Stewart and Freitas remained close throughout the night as ballots were counted. The...

    The Virginia U.S. Senate Republican Primary is set to be a match between Nick Freitas, a Constitutionalist and revered Virginia lawmaker in the House of Delegates, and Corey Stewart, a guy who lost the Republican Primary nomination for Governor of Virginia and decided to run for another office. In the same day that I received an NRA member mailing endorsing U.S. Senate candidate Nick Freitas as an A+ representative of the Second Amendment, I read a story from the Daily Wire about Freitas’ opponent Corey Stewart praising known anti-Semite Paul Nehlen as his “personal hero.” “I can't tell you how much I...

    LYNCHBURG — GOP U.S. Senate candidate Nick Freitas in a debate on Thursday called out rival Corey Stewart’s campaign for making ethnic jokes about his name. Stewart responded that if a little name-calling got under Freitas’ skin, he would be thrashed by Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine should he be the GOP nominee in the general election. The scrap came toward the end of a lively debate at Liberty University featuring Stewart, Freitas and minister E.W. Jackson of Chesapeake, who are competing in the June 12 primary. The candidates discussed foreign policy, defended President Donald Trump and the tax cut he...
