RINO Bloxom Wins Special Election in Va – 100



All we need in the Virginia House of Delegates is another RINO. But that is what we got.

Robert Bloxom, who probably was directly responsible for tipping the Virginia Senate to the Democrats won the special election.

Watchdog.Org put it this way:

RICHMOND, Va. – A fence-straddling Republican who may have swung a Senate election for Democrats last month is contending for the House of Delegates.

And he has many Eastern Shore conservatives spitting sand.

The 100th House district – which stretches from Norfolk to Accomack County – opened when incumbent Democrat Lynwood Lewis moved up to the Senate.

Lewis’ 11-vote squeaker over Republican Wayne Coleman in last month’s special election blocked the GOP from retaining control of the Senate.

Now Robert Bloxom Jr. – who refused to publicly endorse Coleman – is vying to succeed Lewis as a Republican.

Bloxom’s failure to back Coleman may well have tipped the pivotal Senate election for the Democrats. As son of former GOP Delegate Robert “Bob” Bloxom Sr., junior was in position to aid the Republican cause.

Bloxom defended his neutrality in the race by saying Lewis is a personal friend and second cousin to his wife.

Political compromise seems to run in the family. Bloxom’s father was an early endorser of Democrat Terry McAuliffe for governor, and served as secretary of agriculture under Tim Kaine, another Democrat.

And I am not sure that Republican Party Chairman is up to date on the politics of Bloxom, but he does have a duty to at least give the appearance of being delighted that a republican won. So I will give him a pass. But I think it safe to say that McAuliffe has added one more vote to most of his agenda with Bloxom’s election.
RPV Chairman Pat Mullins gave the following statement:“Let me be among the first to congratulate Delegate-elect Rob Bloxom on his overwhelming win tonight in House District 100. Rob is going to make a great addition to Speaker Howell’s growing caucus, and I look forward to working with him to advance our shared conservative values in the General Assembly.”

“But tonight’s win is about so much more than just who holds this House of Delegates seat. Just a few weeks ago, voters split nearly 50-50 in this same area. But after just a few weeks of watching Virginia Democrats try to implement their vision for our Commonwealth, voters spoke loud and clear, and sent a resounding message to Democrats: no more.”

“Democrats made this race about the very priorities that Terry McAuliffe, Dick Saslaw and his fellow liberals have been pushing ever since they took over in Richmond. Their candidate ran on raising the minimum wage. He ran on expanding Medicaid. He ran on implementing President Obama’s liberal agenda. But don’t take my word for it. Listen to one of his radio ads.”

And there may be some old timers around that remember Bloxom’s Dad, Robert Sr. Hewas one of the first Republicans to come out for Terry McAuliffe in the November election.
The apple don’t fall far from the tree.

    There are several ways in which a dozen-odd more votes could have been had for Wayne Coleman, of which you pluck one, in service of your agenda. Wayne lost by 400 votes in Northampton (about 40%/60%), won in Accomack and Matthews, lost by 400 votes in Norfolk (roughly 47%/53% as I recall). Better performance by Republicans in either Northampton or Norfolk would be at least as plausible, and less lemon-sucking and divisive, an explanation.

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