I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

McCain Far Ahead In First Post-Romney Polls In Virginia

Honestly, this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but John McCain is far ahead in the first poll of Virginia voters conducted after the departure of Mitt Romney from the race: One day after Mitt Romney withdrew from the Republican race for President, John McCain collects approximately two-thirds of Romney’s support, according to before-and-after […]

Hillary, Obama, McCain, And The Potomac Primary

With only a few days left until the primaries in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., the campaigns are stepping up their presence in the area: The Potomac Primary became a little less crowded today with the withdrawal of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who made his announcement in Northwest Washington. With only five days before […]

The Battle Of Virginia

The Old Dominion is shaping up to be the site of the next battle between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama: Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama, digging in for a delegate-by-delegate fight for the Democratic presidential nomination, returned to Washington yesterday with plans to make Tuesday’s Virginia primary a major battleground. Strategists in both […]

If You Don’t Know When Election Day Is, Don’t Bother Voting

by @ Wednesday, February 6th, 2008. Filed under 2008 Presidential Primary, Virginia, Virginia Politics

As I noted yesterday, some people in Virginia and Maryland thought that they could vote yesterday: Hundreds of confused Virginians and some Marylanders jumped the gun yesterday, showing up at polls or calling election officials to find out where to cast ballots, even though the presidential primary is next week. Virginia and Maryland were not […]

Virginia Voters Showing Up To The Polls…..A Week Early

by @ Tuesday, February 5th, 2008. Filed under 2008 Election, 2008 Presidential Primary, Politics, Virginia, Virginia Politics

I had a feeling that something like this might happen. All day yesterday and overnight, my referral logs showed an inordinate amount of people coming here after doing a search for “Virginia Super Tuesday” or something like that. I didn’t think anything of it, because, obviously, everyone knows that Virginia’s primary is next week. Right […]

Gearing Up For The Potomac Primary

by @ Tuesday, February 5th, 2008. Filed under 2008 Election, 2008 Presidential Primary, Politics, Virginia, Virginia Politics

It’s fairly certain that neither party will come out of Super Tuesday with a confirmed nominee, which makes next Tuesday’s primaries in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia all the more important: Democrats and Republicans around here are so unaccustomed to attention from presidential candidates or the national press during a primary season that […]

Obama Grabbing Up Support In Virginia

Nearly half of the Democrats in the Virginia Senate are coming out for Barack Obama: About half of the 21 Democrats in the Virginia Senate are planning to announce today they are supporting Sen. Barack Obama’s (D-Ill.) bid for the White House. Obama’s list of supporters will likely included senators from every region of the […]

This Time, It Will Actually Matter

It’s beginning to look like Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia made a wise choice when they scheduled their primaries for the week after Super Tuesday: The Washington region’s history in presidential primary politics is found mainly in the footnotes. It was 1988 before Virginia departed from its tradition of caucuses and mass meetings […]

Virginia Voter Registration

Vivian Paige reminds me that today is the last day to register to vote in Virginia’s February 12th primary: Today – Monday, Janaury 14 – is the last day to register to vote in the February 12 presidential primaries. 17-year-olds, who will be 18 by Election Day, November 4, are eligible to vote in these […]

McCain leads Clinton 49% to 38% and Obama 45% to 43%. Governor […]
