GOP's Virginia election strategy

News & Politics

If there's a Virginia Republican reading this, I'd honestly love to hear your take on Kilgore's dirty tricks.

First Virginia voters get something in the mail called the "Official Democrat and Progressive Voter Guide," unfavorably comparing Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Tim Kaine to former Republican Russ Potts on Choice, Gays and Guns, hoping to peel off the votes of progressives disillusioned with the party.

Except the pamphlet was paid for by Jerry Kilgore, the Kaine's Republican opponent.

Now, Virginia voters are receiving automated phone calls ("robocalls") from something called Honest Leadership for Virginia PAC that states: "I’m Tim Kaine and I want you to know where I stand on the issues."

So what's wrong with that? Well, like the above pamphlet, the source is a pro-Kilgore organization. In this case, it's Kilgore's #1 donor, at nearly $3 million.

This may be a good time to revisit the stunning -- but underplayed -- revelation that Kerry had, and has serious doubts, about the legitimacy of the 2004 election [HERE]
