Virginia Senate Race - Trifecta of Good News
Today was a very good day for Democratic Senate candidate Jim Webb.
In a trifecta of good news, a Navy Academy graduate and former Sen. George Allen supporter now endorses Jim Webb, Raising Kaine reports.
Linda Ponstenriender, a 1982 Naval Academy grad who was recruited to speak at a press conference commandeered by the Allen campaign earlier this month, said she has since heard from Jim Webb and liked what he has to say. Today, Ponstenriender officially endorsed Webb’s candidacy.Also, the black caucus in Virginia's General Assembly today publicly endorsed Jim Webb, Daily Press reports.
And in a new poll, Webb and Allen are now even, The Virginian-Pilot reports.
Yep, since July, Allen's once formidable 16-point lead has vanished.
And just how and why did Allen's lead disappear, you might ask?
Allen’s lead disappeared this month amid his angry denial and subsequent acknowledgement of his Jewish roots, and allegations that he often used a racial epitaph to refer to blacks when he was a student at the University of Virginia in the early 1970s. Allen says the reports about his language are false.But rejoice GOP batwings; your sorry-ass candidate deserves to lose and you know it. Moreover, if you truly place the welfare of nation ahead of partisan politics, you, too, will vote for Webb on Nov. 7.
Remember, no one will ever need to KNOW!
