Congressman Eric Cantor attends Ashland Strawberry Faire

The Annual Ashland Strawberry Faire took place today in the town of Ashland, Virginia. The booths, food vendors, Arts and Crafts, Animal Rescue and live music combined to make the event a “fun for all ages” affair.

There were plenty of snow cones, free water and large cups of freshly made lemonade to help deal with the 95 degree temperatures.

And what small town faire would fail to have a full representation of local politicians?

Hanover County Board of Supervisors Chairman Ed Via was there along with Chickahominy District Supervisor Bob Setliff and South Anna Supervisor John Gordon Jr.

Delegate John Cox was there talking to people as they walked by the Hanover GOP Committee booth, which was promoting Congressman Cantor with a large sign and bumper stickers. Delegate Chris Peace stopped by along with Virginia Senator Ryan McDougle.

The already large group of fair attendees congregating around the GOP tent grew even larger as Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor arrived. Congressman Cantor answered questions, discussed a number of topics with anyone that wished to talk politics, and a few even wished him a happy birthday, which is tomorrow.

All of the elected officials walked around, shaking hands and enjoying the atmosphere and large turnout.

In addition to the Republican politicians that braved the warm temperatures, Rick Waugh, Cantor’s Democratic opponent in the November election was out meeting people and talking about his stand on various issues, and he is definitely not lacking in enthusiasm.

There is no doubt that politics was on the minds of some faire attendees, but getting out on a Saturday with the entire family was the real thrill. New babies in strollers, kids being pulled in  wagons, parents, grandparents and great-grandparents moved from booth to booth, enjoying the celebration.

Ashland has once again had an enormously successful Strawberry faire.

  1. It’s an aberration that the President of the United States endorses a mosque so close to the biggest and most atrocious terrorist act in the history of the World!It’a spit in the face of the people that died there in horror; their families, and the rest of us Americans. It is unacceptable!We should wait until the mosque is finished, and then blow it up while all the Muslims are in there praying!!! See how they feel about that

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