The Lessons Of The 2008 Election In Virginia

Three things happened on Tuesday in Virginia. First, Mark Warner sailed to election as Virginia’s new Senator after a campaign against Jim Gilmore that was never really a contest. Second, Barack Obama became the first Democratic candidate for President since Lyndon Johnson to win Virginia’s Electoral Votes. And, third, the political divide between Northern Virginia […]

Gilmore Goes After Warner Over Bailout Plan

There hasn’t been much good news for Jim Gilmore lately. He’s far behind in the polls, has barely enough money to run an effective media campaign, and just isn’t getting the media attention that he would if his race against Mark Warner were closer. So, it’s not surprising that he took the opportunity of last […]
