Black is Back?
An interested reader sent me the link to this article in the Loudoun Connection newspaper.Â Dick Black’s camapign war chest of over 100k is impressive, but I don’t think that any amount will get him re-elected.Â His re-entry onto the Loudoun political scene would put the final nail in the LCRC coffin in my opinion.
After months of rumors and actions that suggested the current Republican supervisors were working with the LCRC leadership to oust Lori Waters, the latest buzz is that the LCRC is looking for candidates to replace all supervisors except Lori Waters in an acknowldegement that the growth issue is killing the local party.Â A recent poll conducted by the LCRC suggested that development and traffic are hot button issues with the electorate.Â A Black is Back (cue the AC/DC soundtrack) effort would point towards the former strategy still holding sway.
Update:Â After writing this post I checked my TC email account and found an interesting email from a reader suggesting that the 32nd and 33rd Districts are winnable with a centrist Republican candidate.Â I agree wholeheartedly, but I am not certain that the local Republican leadership agrees.Â To anyone with private thoughts or leads on new stories, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
