I was impressed by two news items relating to the campaign of John Adams for AG.
Senator Siobhan Dunnavant has endorsed Adams! Here’s the story from Bearing Drift. Adams has quite a resume:
Adams is a first-time candidate for Attorney General and works in government investigations at McGuire Woods. He has previously served our country in the United States Navy, graduated law school from UVA, clerked for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, served as White House Counsel to President George W. Bush, and was as an Assistant United States’ Attorney for the Eastern District.
I am impressed. Especially with the clerkship for Justice Thomas and the Associate White House Counsel, in spite of my skepticism on things relating to Bush. Adams is wired into the legal community in Richmond. The Senator Dunnavant endorsement from Adams’ campaign:
“As a doctor, I am trained to diagnose a problem and prescribe a solution. The problem in Virginia is we have an Attorney General who routinely ignores the Constitution, laws passed by the General Assembly, and the will of the people of Virginia, in order to advance a political agenda. The solution is to elect an Attorney General with outstanding legal qualifications and management experience, combined with a life long commitment to our Constitution, the rule of law, and public service. John Adams is that candidate.”
Here’s something that impresses me even more: Money and lots of it and most of it from the legal community. Here is the VPAP report. Over $408,000! Again Adams is wired into the legal and business community in Richmond.
Now, normally I’d give serious consideration to Adams (Incidentally, how can you not like a name like John Adams – his namesake was our second President, firebrand for independence, a lawyer who defended the British soldiers accused in the Boston Massacre [and won] and very honorable Founding Father.) he’s the underdog with a huge bite. I will support the GOP candidate in the general election I am sure.
BUT I promised Del. Rob Bell my help and I plan to keep that promise. So let’s lay a marker right here – not a blog endorsement – just Sandy’s endorsement – BUT I am still for Rob Bell for AG. Here’s how you can help.
Surely either Adams
