Parade, Fireworks, and Bob McDonnell

This Saturday Bob McDonnell will be front and center along with Bill Bolling and former Congressman Tom Davis as they walk in Fairfax City 4th of July Parade. McDonnell has increased his presence in Northern Virginia as the race to Richmond heats up. There is no doubt that in order for McDonnell to surge ahead Deeds he will need to win big in the NOVA region. If you are in the area and would like to volunteer please RSVP to(adam.zubowsky@bobmcdonnell.com) . The Fairfax HQ is located at 4246 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax Va.

Tim Kaine Isn't Very Transparent

It is Tim Kaine's moral responsibility to be as transparent as possible. Though when asked about his full schedule, it was not released due to privacy concerns. Also efforts to review his calendar were denied. He stated earlier this week at a press conference that he would answer any questions about his travels, but his staff have refused to answer. That doesn't sound very transparent to me...

Amundson Out????

Rumor has it that Delegate Kris Amundson is not going to seek re-election and FCDC Chair Scott Surovell will be replacing her ...

Looks like we can add the 44th District to another race that is a possible pickup ... Keep up the good work Jay McConville !!

Where is Governor Tim Kaine?

The VA GOP has requested, under the Freedom of Information Act, records of Gov. Kaine's out-of-state travels and state expenditures related to his work as chairman of the Democratic National Committee. It seems he has been traveling throughout the country in support of the DNC, and neglecting his duties as Governor of Virginia. The video below details some of these trips, as well as provides quotes from various newspapers. Where will Gov. Kaine be next week?

Mcdonnell Ahead By One Point in Recent Poll

MCDONNELL 45 Deeds 44

Although Mcdonnell is only leading by one point in this recent poll, the GOP candidate is still ahead of Deeds with some margin in the very favorable and favorable categories in the poll, Mcdonnell even pulled ahead of President Obama by a point in the favorable caterory. However in this first post primary poll it seems that Mcdonnell will need to capture Northern Virginia to ensure victory. Deeds outscored Mcdonnell by 42 points, when it comes to NOVA voters. Yet there is still plenty of hope for our candidate. Mcdonnell seems to attract more Democrat voters, with 17 points, (and this poll did have more registered Democrats responding) ahead 18 points with the rest of the state, and is soaring ahead Deeds in whites ages 45 on up. The road to Richmond is still far in the distance and things are looking positive for Mcdonnell as he enters the summer.

LeMunyon Receives Endorsement of Northern Virginia's Technology Council's TechPAC

Chantilly, VA - The Northern Virginia Technology Council's TechPAC today endorsed Jim LeMunyon for election to the House of Delegates in the 67th District.

"I appreciate the TechPAC's endorsement, and the boost it gives to our campaign," said LeMunyon. "Northern Virginia's vibrant technology industry is a prime source of employment in our region, which is a key technology center in the United States. While some believe the government should target specific industries, technologies, or companies, I am an advocate for public policies that aim to target the process of innovation in which existing companies can expand and create jobs, and in which new companies can form and grow."

Jim LeMunyon is himself a technology company entrepreneur, and has contributed to the formation of several companies, including Sterling Semiconductor, which is now a unit of Dow Corning Corporation. (See www.sterlingsemiconductor.com)

LeMunyon has also served in government as a Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and as Chief-of-Staff to a member of Congress in the early and mid-1980s. During that time, he coordinated a Republican Task Force in the House of Representatives that created the first "tech policy" agenda and was successful in securing bipartisan support to enact several laws to promote innovation.

Virginia's 67th Legislative District includes Chantilly, and portions of Fairfax, Oakton, Centreville, Oak Hill, and South Riding.
