What does Gerry Connolly think is important?
I wrote earlier this week a response to the Examiner’s story that “outs” Keith Fimian as a Catholic business owner and wondered if Gerry Connolly really wants to run a cultural campaign. It’s clear Keith Fimian does not, andÂ would ratherÂ focus on the issues that matter to VA-11 voters: transportation, the economy, and national security.
In the days since, Fimian’s religion has been brought up by the DCCC (which is helping bankroll Connolly’s campaign), Raising Kaine, and national blogs. Does Connolly agree with his backers that social issues are the most important things to focus on? Or will he step up and demand that this race be about the issues that matter most, as Fimian has?
This is a question of leadership, Chairman. It’s never too early to start.
