The new State Senate district maps appear to be on their way to being approved by Governor McDonnell. I was told by a very good source tonight that John Stirrup is now in the newly formed 13th Senate District (this website always has troubles, but here’s a link to the state mapping), which will include much of northwestern, central, and southeastern Loudoun County along with a good portion of northern Prince William County. This is the general area Dick Black had planned to parachute into to try to get himself elected to the State Senate, that includes PWC right wingnut counterpart Bob FitzSimmonds.
This newly drawn district also includes the home of PWC Supervisor John Stirrup, and he supposedly is all set to get into the race. Stirrup has a great reputation and will connect very well with those in the Loudoun County portions of this district, besides having a great base of support in PWC. Stirrup is a great guy and a non-abrasive conservative who could actually get things done in Richmond for his constituents, while Black or FitzSimmonds would be sideshow distractions. Should Stirrup do this he becomes the immediate strong favorite in this race. Please do it!
