News & Notes from Around the 8th: February 7, 2017

Remember when Hillary Clinton said, “when they go low, we go high“?

It was clearly nothing more than empty campaign rhetoric.

Liberals across America are organizing protests against Republican elected officials. The online guides they are distributing to their activists tell them to be “angry constituents” that disrupt every public appearance of their Congressman. Senator Kaine, Clinton’s running mate, even called on activists to to take the fight to the streets.

Their goal, keep the failed Obamacare policy, preserve regulations that are stopping our economy from growing, drive our country into bankruptcy through out-of-control spending, and make America less safe by failing to secure our borders against ISIS terrorists.

While we clearly do not have Republican representation here in the 8th, we can still call other Republicans in Congress, particularly those in Virginia, and tell them they have our support to do the things they promised on the campaign trail last year.

And, call Senator Kaine and ask him why he is using such inflammatory rhetoric!

In other news, this past week our 8th District State Central Rep Brian Rabbitt resigned his position. That’s the bad news. The good news is Brian resigned to take a job in the Trump White House Counsel’s office. Congratulations Brian!

I have tentatively scheduled a meeting to elect his replacement on February 23rd. Two candidates have already expressed an interest in running. If you are interested, please feel free to send me an email at
