I was amazed but also very pleased to see the support for Del. Bell announced yesterday in an email.  Here is the entire list on the website!

Check out the Hanover list – six elected officials from our county coming out for BELL!

Hanover County

Delegate Christopher Peace

Honorable Trip Chalkley, Commonwealth’s Attorney

Sheriff Dave Hines

Honorable Wayne Hazzard, County Supervisor

Former Delegate Frank Hargrove

Honorable Sean Davis, County Supervisor

I am VERY pleased to see my former delegate, a hero of mine, Del. Frank Hargrove, on the list.  Also it is significant that BOTH the sheriff and the Commonwealth’s Attorney have come out for Del. Bell, too.  Finally, Del. Peace (proud to call my delegate) and two supervisors I strongly support, Wayne Hazzard and My own supervisor, Sean Davis, are Bell supporters.

Other significant names on the list are:

Former Delegate Bill Janis of Henrico

Congressman Robert Hurt

Albemarle Supervisor (and very helpful in getting ICLEI booted from Albemarle) Ken Boyd

House Courts of Justice Chairman David Albo

Delegate (and Dr.) John O’Bannon, M.D.

Senator Tom Garrett (It may have been Del. Bell’s support in Fluvanna that helped Tom win the primary!)

Delegate Richard Anderson from PWC.  (I know Del. Anderson slightly and he is a super representative)

Delegate Terry Kilgore from western Virginia

And Martha Boneta, the Fauquier farmer who was threatened with a fine for a birthday party!

There are a lot of people I do not know so please pardon some omissions!  Please note there are several Commonwealth’s Attorneys on the list (Orange, Madison and Chesapeake) and several sheriffs(Orange, Greene, Chesterfield, and Albemarle) too.  Many delegates, too!

So, don’t believe that every party leader and office holder are for the other guy!  If you live in a county or city where you have a GOP sheriff or Commonwealth’s Attorney, ask them – politely – to endorse Del. Rob Bell for Attorney General.

AND (not mentioned yet in the ad – I am not important like these are) a certain blogger in Hanover!  I’m a delegate (at the convention) for Bell!

    Delegate Bell is one choice. But can he win in a state wide election? This is the question. A good canidate that does not win can not do anyone any good. We must look at all canidates and support the best one with a chance to win. This may not be Bell

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