I am not endorsing Sarvis for Governor but I promised the Libertarian candidate fair space at this blog.  And I mean it!

I will try to go July 2 to the Sarvis gubernatorial kick off party – it is at the Robin Inn from 6 to 9 PM on Tuesday July 2.   Here’s the Sarvis FB page to sign up.  I’ll see if I make it!  (I suppose they might not let me come!)

And Robert Sarvis is on the ballot, too.  Here’s his website for more information.

UPDATE:  I was at the Robert Sarvis for Governor kickoff!  He was the special guest of the Patrick Henry Supper Club, apparently a regular event of the Richmond Metro Libertarians.

I am impressed with Sarvis.  Like Christopher Sullivan, he could be a major party candidate.  An attorney and law clerk to a Federal appellate judge as well as an entrepreneur with a start-up company, Sarvis cuts a compelling and attractive image.  “Not just a message campaign but a campaign to win.”  He had some tough questions tonight:  How are you or any other one person going to accomplish anything for the cause of liberty?  Sarvis was poised and articulate.  Sarvis has the slogan:  Virginia: Open minded and open for business.

Sarvis told the assembled group of about 40-45 that Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe had agreed to debate him.  There also has been a request by Sarvis to be in the Virginia Bar Association debate.  We’ll know tomorrow if the VBA says yes.

I promised Sarvis good ink here at the blog.  I admire what he is doing.  Tough job to do well as a third party candidate.  But those who want to help out – contact Joe on his campaign at joe [at] robertsarvis.com.

    Although I had not made a decision, I was to some degree considering the Libertarian candidate, given Cuccinelli’s lukewarm-to-freezing-cold support of Jackson. UNTIL I saw that he is a supporter of same-sex marriage. While I do not support government interference in people’s private lives, this would amount to a government endorsement of this misguided distortion of normal relationships. Sorry, no chance of supporting that position.

    Thank you, Clay A. I also intend at this moment to vote for Ken Cuccinelli. But I wanted to make sure the Libertarian message has fair reporting at this blog. This is the first sign this is beginning to work! Please come again.

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