Fairfax Dems dig up dirt on Tim Hugo
The FCDC “Red-to-Blue” campaign (original title, guys) is targeting the last three Republican delegates in Fairfax, including Tim Hugo in the 40th. Here’s what their vaunted opposition research team uncovered about Tim Hugo:
Delegate Hugo has a long history of supporting conservative causes and opposing transportation investments. Along with Delegate Dave Albo, he was a signatory to Grover Norquist’s Anti-Tax Pledge from 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008 – a pledge signed by only 22% of Virginia’s legislators. He voted for Abuser Fees (before proposing to repeal them) and opposes a woman’s right to choose. His primary supporters are the Republican leadership and corporate interests.
All this time, Tim Hugo is actually an anti-tax, pro-life Republican supported by his party and the business community! Egads! Nothing gets by the FCDC!
Except the results of the last election, which they included for Tom Rust and Dave Albo but seem to have forgotten to include for Hugo. Maybe because Hugo laid a Wolf-esque smackdown against a candidate who had nothing but Feder-esque hype.
Anyone know who’s wasting their time running against Hugo this year?
