Scott York A Republican Again?
Joe B put up an interesting opinion piece at NVTH advocating for the return of Scott York to the Loudoun Republican ranks, much to the consternation of certain bloggers who thought they had dibs on the story (a ridiculous notion). There have been informal discussions about this possibility for some time now, and who knows how it will pan out.
One thing is for certain, Scott York does not need the LCRC. He will have an easy re-election bid, especially if it ends up being a two way race against wacky Democrat Tom Bellanca. I’m sure he would like to avoid a three way race, but with the only Republican name really being bandied about being that of Bruce Tulloch, that three way race or something similar would be no problem for York to win.
It will be interesting to watch how this pans out. The professional York haters in the LCRC will have a cow, but I think their numbers and influence have been waning. The Dems won’t be happy, but what do they expect after absolutely going off the deep end lately and filing a clueless Chairman of the Board candidate? One thing is for sure, York is in the driver’s seat on this decision. Either way he goes, he’s a winner.
On a related note, as mentioned at NVTH, York led the charge to change the names of two ridiculously named districts – Ashdowne is now Ashburn, and the Dean District is now the Dulles District, much to the chagrin of the LCDC and their off the wall candidate there, Larry Roeder. I am very surprised that the racial pandering didn’t stick.
UPDATE: Tom Bellanca shows up in comments and proves why I call him “wacky”!!!
