Let’s start with the LP candidate for the 55th district – Christopher G. Sullivan and his first foray on the radio – WTJU 91.1 FM.  Here it is on vimeo!


I think this was August 18.  Sullivan did have a few umms and aahs but generally was excellent – he ought to consider a radio show after the election, win or lose!  Maybe he could also guest blog here at Virginia Right!

As for Sarvis, I heard from his campaign (via email that thousands get as well as me!) that he was in Buena Vista with McAuliffe and Cuccinelli on the same stage!  The Buena Vista Labor Day parade is the traditional kick off for the fall campaign.  Here is the tweet from the Roanoke Times:

Ken Cuccinelli, Terry McAuliffe, Robert Sarvis campaign for governor at the Buena Vista Labor Day parade.

Here is some more news from the campaign:

TWO TV stations interviewed Robert today and WMAL radio news in Northern Virginia just featured SARVIS ALONE on its recap of the Buena Vista parade.  NO MENTION of Cuccinelli or McAuliffe!!

I also found this item at the website of WJLA, channel 7:

The fatigue and distaste for this year’s election – fast on the heels of last year’s withering partisan presidential and senatorial battles in this swing state – was palpable, and none of those who stood in the muggy, sunny morning illustrated it better than 44-year-old Tammy Floyd.

Asked about her choice in the gubernatorial election 64 days away, she rolled her eyes and said replied, “Oh, Lord. I tell you, it’s just awful.”

“I just don’t know if I’m going to even vote. I really don’t,” she said without a hint of a smile as she kept an eye on her 9-year-old granddaughter, Chloe Goff. “If I did vote, it would be Republican, but I probably won’t vote.”

Tim Blevins, 53, a Buena Vista factory maintenance worker, also remains undecided and says he’s likely to stay that way thanks to the nonstop diet of attack advertising he and other voters are being force-fed.

“Right now, with all the negative press you’re seeing on TV, it’s who can you trust?” Blevins said.

He said he usually votes a party ticket, but refused to say which party he usually backs. The ill odor of this year’s race, he said, could prompt him to consider Sarvis as an alternative.

Perhaps this is indeed Minnesota 1998!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
