Tom Shields Predicted Loser By Swing State Project

The Swing State Project, which looks at Campaign and Election News – Covering Key Races Around the Country predicts that the floundering Tom Shields campaign that many Democrats once had high hopes for is going lose to Delegate O’Bannon in the November election.

From Swing State Project:

Suburban Richmond is home to John O’Bannon, who has $175,000 in the bank and is being challenged by college professor Thomas Shields. Shields has a lot of catching up to do to match O’Bannon’s fundraising.

Perhaps Shields lack of honesty with O’Bannon’s record have taken a toll. Voters look to have already voted with their wallets.

  1. "Floundering" ??? And your barometer is what exactly? I know of at least two gatherings within the 73rd community within the City limits that was undertaken and as a result Shields as five times the number of canvassers as O'Bannon. Maybe that is a better indication; people willing to donate "time and effort" versus "money". This post illustrates exactly what is wrong with the Genral Assembly these days; its all about money and where its coming from.
    Again, you promote here what a good thing it is that the 73rd has these two men facing off but yet I never seem to hear you asking for the two men to square off, instead its been a steady stream of "he said he said", "association politics" and alot of inuendo.

  5. I understand it just fine, but see I think politics ought to be about one thing and you think it ought to be about only one thing; winning. I have been involved in numerous campaigns over the years and seen first hand the ones that have succeeded and how and why it is they did so. The blogoshere has certainly played it share of game; ie Allen "maccaca" via Raising Kids, but what you fail to understand in your ideological stance is that Virginia ia and has been for quite some time an Independent-minded voting class. Look at the data of races Tom. Hence you get Obama and Eric Cantor both winning in Henrico- a split ticket haven.

  7. And for the record, if you think that the "he said he said" and "associations" tact you are engaging in is what you think is "politics than IMHO you are doing more to undermine the true debate and process than you are advancing it. But than I guess thats why we don't have more qualified people like Shields stepping up to the plate and taking a swing at a run for office.

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