Republican Jewish Coalition and Gerry Connolly

I wanted to bring your attention to an article on the Republican Jewish Coalition website. It is an interesting article that outlines the importance of the 11th District Congressional race between incumbent Gerry Connolly and Keith Fimian.

This race is not only important for Virginia, but for the entire country. Connolly is clearly nervous, and is trying to cover up his liberal views and track record in order to attract moderate voters. As this article points out, this tactic will not work for Connolly. Keith Fimian is the right man for the job, and will be a strong voice for Republican Virginians.

Del. Todd Gilbert on Fox News

Our very own Delegate Todd Gilbert was recently on Fox News discussing needed changes to immigration law. The federal government and Barack Obama need to take a bigger stand against illegal immigration in order to curtail this growing problem. Watch the video in its entirety below, or you can follow this link.

Republicans More Enthusiastic About November Elections

In a recent poll it was clear to see that Republican voters were more enthusiastic about the coming November elections, than their Democratic counterparts.

The poll found that 87% of base Republicans rated their enthusiasm level between an 8-10 (10 being the most), while only 76% of base Democrats shared that enthusiasm. The gap is even larger with soft Republicans and Democrats. Among soft Republicans 79% rated their interest between 8-10. This means that soft Republicans are more enthusiastic about the coming elections, then base Democrats! Only 52% of soft Democrats rated their enthusiasm level at 8-10.

These are staggering numbers, and proves the strength of the GOP in the coming November elections. To read more about these numbers please visit this link, which was posted on Public Opinion Strategies by Glen Bolger.

Democratic Candidates All But Ignore Their Legislative Successes

Democratic candidates up for re-election this year have been warned by advisors to stay away from bragging about their passed legislation. Why? Because the legislation they have passed has been radical and highly criticized. Their far-reaching policies will hurt them when it comes to Election Day, and they know it. Democratic candidates have tried to turn the attention to Republicans, but will have trouble doing so. The track record of Democratic candidates speaks for itself, and they cannot just sweep their legislation under the rug. They realize the error of their ways, and are trying to cover it up by placing attention elsewhere. Read an article focusing on this issue by clicking here.

Virginia’s Lessons for America: Speaker Howell on WRVA

Earlier today Speaker Bill Howell was on WRVA's Jimmy Barrett Show with special guest host Congressman Randy Forbes. They discussed Virginia's budget and the lessons Washington can (and more importantly SHOULD) learn from the way our state went from a $4.2 Billion deficit under Governor Kaine's administration to a balanced budget.

Since President Obama and his fellow Democrats do not seem to grasp the obvious I will outline a few things that they should take away from this interview....

  1. Tax Cuts are more stimulative than SPENDING!
  2. In a recession, it is vital to promote a pro-business climate rather than strap them down with more regulation and tax hikes!
  3. We must foster the growth of the job makers in this economy and live within our fiscal means as a country.
Instead of Washington continuing to promote the FAILING policies of President Obama and Speaker Pelosi ... they might want to take a page out of Governor McDonnell and the Virginia House of Delegates playbook to get this country back on the right track.
