Comstock Makes Sense on Economy
Barbara Comstock, running for Delegate in the 34th district, had an op-ed published in the Examiner, concerning card-check at a federal level, and Virginia’s right-to-work status at a state level, which is responsible for Virginia’s unemployment levels being lower than other states.
Comstock goes out of her way to avoid singling out or mentioning her opponent, Margi Vanderhye, to the benefit of readers who don’t know or care about the race but would still be interested in the points she raised. So let me do it for her: Vanderhye is as liberal as they come, and is definitely in the pocket of Big Labor. For a seat she barely won, after being vacated by a moderate Republican (and that Pat Herrity won in February), Vanderhye has charted a far left course that has surprised observers in both parties, to the glee of her partisan allies but to the concern of independent-minded voters in the 34th. Fortunately, there’s a better alternative.
