Split on who to support for AG? I’ve got an idea.
Many people have made up their mind in the Attorney General’s race. Personally, I like Cuccinelli, but think Brownlee has a great resume, and I came away from the FCRC meeting last Tuesday impressed with Dave Foster as well. I’d enthusiastically support any of the three in the general election.
But when it comes to who gets support before the convention, I have a great way to make a determination: Whichever candidate does the most to elect Pat Herrity as Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.
All three candidates (and Bob McDonnell) on Tuesday said that electing Herrity is their first priority, and I’d like to see them live up to their word. Besides which, having Herrity as Chairman will help immensely in the general election, especially with Fairfax’s own Steve Shannon as the competition.
So Ken, you’ve made a name for yourself with your phenominal Fairfax-based grassroots team. Let’s put them to work for Pat.
Dave, you got elected twice in Arlington County and are campaigning on your ability to win in Democratic areas. Let’s turn some of the non-traditionally Republican areas of Fairfax out for Pat.
John, you’re a novice at elections but have an energetic personality and great communication skills. We’ve got a message for you to deliver to the voters of Fairfax.
There’s been a lot of talk in the AG race so far, and there’s sure to be a lot more to come. I think some on-the-ground action would be a positive change of pace.
