Dirty John Foust has been sent packing, humiliated, losing not only by double digits but likely by over 15 percent, to our new 10th District Congresswoman, Barbara Comstock. With 84% of precincts reporting, Comstock leads 57% to 39%.
Foust – the footnote in future discussion of the death of the war on women meme – should be brought forth as a cautionary tale forever hence. Let his name never be spoken again except in casting shame and derision.
A Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) rally which had been scheduled tomorrow evening in Sterling, featuring candidates Mark Warner and John Foust, has just been cancelled, as reported at Bearing Drift.
The DPVA had advertised the event as “Outer NOVA GOTV Rally with Senator Mark Warner, Senator Tim Kaine and John Foust” and scheduled it to take place Monday, November 3, from 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm at the Sterling Community Center.
The Democrat Foust is behind in the polls by double digits in his race with Republican Barbara Comstock for the 10th Congressional District seat.
Democrat Mark Warner, currently senator from Virginia, is the richest member of the U.S. Senate with an estimated net personal wealth of $257,481,658 in 2012, according to the most recent report from the Center for Responsive Politics. Warner acquired well over $75 million of that total during his current term.
Since taking office in 2009, Warner’s personal fortune increased from $174.4 million to $257.5 million.
A Christopher Newport University (CNU) poll released this morning has incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Warner holding on to a 51% – 44% advantage over Republican Ed Gillespie in the race for Virginia’s U.S. Senate seat. Libertarian Robert Sarvis is favored by 2% of likely voters in the poll conducted Oct. 23-29.
Gillespie has gained 5 points, picking up support from undecided voters and previous Sarvis supporters, since the previous CNU poll in early October.
Virginia’s Democrat Senator Mark Warner, also a former governor of the commonwealth, is facing serious ethical and legal questions stemming from his apparent violation of criminal statutes, including 18 U.S.C. § 227, 18 U.S.C. § 600 and 18 U.S.C. § 371.
At question is Warner’s role in a political bribery scheme involving an offer of a federal judgeship.
In its just-released study of 2014 U.S. Senate voting records, the authoritative Congressional Quarterly ranked Virginia Democrat Mark Warner tops in support for Barack Obama’s agenda, with a stunning 100 percent score.
As reported this week in Roll Call, of senators on the ballot in 2014, only an Illinois Democrat matched Warner’s perfect 100 percent record of support for the Obama Administration agenda.
Sens. Mark Warner, D-Va., and Richard J. Durbin, D-Ill., were the only senators on the ballot to score a perfect 100 percent score …
Although during campaign season Warner has attempted to paint himself as a “moderate,” his actions tell a far different story, and the numbers do not lie: If there is such a thing, Mark Warner is the “rubber-stamp” vote for Obama in the U.S. Senate.
No senator has done more to impose Barack Obama’s agenda on America than Democrat Mark Warner of Virginia.
The 2014 election is the first time the famously slippery Warner will be called to account for his brazen 2009 statements – now known to be lies – which played such a key role in making Obamacare the law of the land:
“Let me be clear. I’m not going to support a health care reform plan that’s gonna take away health care that you’ve got right now OR a health care plan that you like.”
Already enmeshed in a political bribery scandal, Warner is nevertheless a clever campaigner with a massive budget for television ads to offset his liberal voting record. He still leads in the polls – although Warner’s advantage over the Republican Gillespie has shrunk substantially in recent weeks.
Democrats starting an ethics commission sounds like vampires starting a beach volleyball team but, hey: It’s a free country. And as burgermeister of this Potemkin village, who better for the pretense of bipartisanship than “Burger” Bill Bolling?
[As a side note, I never got the whole “Burgers with Bill” thing because while I do like burgers, I don’t enjoy careerist party hackery as a condiment. Until, that is, I learned that burgers with Bill also means you get to throw burgers at Bill, whereupon it all made sense.]
Philip Puckett, a Democrat and former Virginia state senator, has told federal investigators that Mark Warner, currently representing Virginia in the U.S. Senate, suggested trading a federal judgeship to Puckett’s daughter, which is illegal under U.S. law.
The question arose at last night’s candidate debate between Warner and Ed Gillespie, resulting in what is now being called Warner’s “debate from hell.”
