Virginia Republican Primary Results

Patricia Evans forwarded (looks like someone else originally typed) this introduction to the Republican candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general in Virginia:

"
Ken Cuccinelli, Governor:
·        He single handedly defeated the EPA at Accotink Creek in Fairfax County, where the EPA tried to define  storm runoff as a pollutant thus giving the EPA control over the entire watershed
·        He was the first Attorney General to sue ObamaCare
·        He led the passage of Va’s Eminent Domain amendment which curtails eminent domain abuses.  It passed 75-25, even though the Democratic Sample Ballot had it checked as “No”!
·        He is a homeschooler and father of 7
 
EW Jackson, Lt. Gov.    Jackson, a pastor, attorney, Marine veteran and descendant of Orange County (VA) slaves, has ignited the flames of liberty creating a wildfire across the Commonwealth AND the nation.  Jackson was selected by a substantial margin from among 7 well-qualified candidates including 5 men, 2 women and 5 “politicians”. It’s interesting that at the end of the day, after 3 elimination votes, the only two left standing were those that had never held elected office;  Jackson and businessman Pete Snyder.
 
Mark Obenshain, Attorney General     Mark, as a State Senator from Harrisonburg to our General Assembly, has been an unsung, behind-the-scenes facilitator of MUCH conservative legislation.  He’s obviously popular at home winning his last election by a 70-29 margin over his Democrat challenger.

This web site congratulates all three candidates. As noted in the e-mail, we'll be seeing more of candidates Bell, Davis, Lingamfelter, and others who have and have not been publicized at this web site, in future elections.
