    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 anniversary of the August 12, 2017 Charlottesville protest is coming up. It was on this day, so the story goes, that the left confronted the right over the right’s support for a statue of civil war general Robert E. Lee and a woman was killed by a white nationalist driving his car into a crowd of Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other protestors. Because applications by “Unite the Right” for a return to Charlottesville were turned down, the protest this year is scheduled for Lafayette Park, across the street from the White House in Washington. The ANSWER coalition, representing...

    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.

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...

    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...

    The Virginia Republican primary yielded Corey Stewart as the opponent to face Tim Kaine in the U.S. Senate election this November. Stewart beat Nick Freitas by a difference of 1.7% of the votes. It was a close race.304,435 Virginians voted. 136,544 for Stewart, 131,267 for Freitas. Stewart won by 5,277 total votes. Northern Virginia, a DC suburb, appears to have handed the victory to Corey Stewart over his liberty conservative opponent, where Stewart brought in 10,604 more votes than Freitas.*This may surprise some. After all, Corey Stewart appeared to espouse country values, while Freitas was the more mainstream candidate. Stewart’s campaign focused...

    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...

    Rep. Barabara Comstock, R-Va., beat back conservative primary challenger Shak Hill to defend her House seat this fall. Comstock will face off against Democratic state Sen. Jennifer Wexton in Virginia's 10th Congressional District, which voted for Hillary Clinton by 10 points in 2016. The suburban district's support for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam in 2017, as well as its centrist voters' continued antipathy toward President Trump, has made it one of the Democrats' top targets in the midterm elections.

    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...

    All of us have a vested, civil interest in knowing that the voter franchise is fully honored and respected In the state of California, we have a voter fraud problem. Of course, the Democratic Party, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Congressman Elijah Cummings play the race card every time someone talks about ending voter fraud and voter registration incompetence. But the voter fraud problem in California is massive and unmistakable.
