Connolly “jokes” about suppressing the Fairfax Republican vote
Ben at NLS breaks the story with this video about Connolly, with Sharon Bulova standing at his side (where else would she be?), rallying a crowd of Democrats by encouraging them to give Republicans the wrong date of the election.
What’s telling about this video, aside from how politically tone-deaf Boss Connolly is to this sort of thing, is how scared Connolly must be that he isn’t going to retain the seat by installing his puppet, Bulova. Why would he even need to joke about trying to suppress the Republican vote in blue Fairfax County if he wasn’t? Its been clear for a while that the Herrity campaign has been outworking Bulova on the ground, and there’s a lot more excitement for Herrity from Republicans than there is for Bulova from Democrats.
