Denver Riggleman’s announcement that he is suspending his campaign just made the decision so glaringly obvious that anyone to the right of Lindsey Graham can clearly see that Stewart is the only Conservative in the race.
Enron Ed Gillespie is not only a big government establishment RINO, but a lobbyist. A potential governorship by Gillespie would be more disastrous than the last Republican who pretended to be a Conservative, Bob McDonnell. The devastation of the Virginia Republican Party by “Sponge Bob” McDonnell opened the door for McAuliffe and – even worse – Virginia’s far left Attorney General Mark “Red” Herring.
Corey Stewart distinguished himself in my book by cleaning up the illegal alien problem in Prince William with an innovative program in concert with the Federal Government. He was fair and even handed in dealing with people who broke the law by sneaking into the United States, but he proved he is a law and order guy back when enforcing America’s laws wasn’t cool.
Corey has a proven record of Conservatism that outshines the darling of K Street, Ed Gillespie and the third party in this race, Frank “Never Met a Tax I didn’t Like” Wagner.
So we have two big government tax and spend RINO’s and only one Conservative.
With Riggleman in the race, we had a strange dynamic with a two pair hand in the Gubernatorial race. One pair of RINO’s and a pair of Conservatives. Wagner and Gillespie are both after the left wing of the Virginia GOP primary voters. Conservatives have only one choice.
I would like to urge all of the former Riggleman supporters to consider getting behind Stewart. I hope the remaining #NeverTrump folks will look at the SCOTUS pick by President Trump, his budget, his cabinet picks and the Obama Executive Orders he has put forth and understand that Corey Stewart got behind Trump very early. He realized, like a lot of us, that we need an innovator like Trump in the White House.
And yes, the Trump Train had it’s bumps. But stuff happens.
Corey, you have my vote and my support.
