Conservatism mixed with a little end time theology

Race for Virginia Governor Points to GOP

It’s not looking good for the Dem’s to add a 3rd straight liberal Governor to the state.

Polls now show Republican candidate McDonnell with a 9-point lead over the opposing Democrat candidate.  This is up 6 points from July.

According to McDonnell’s website, he’s running on the platform of lower taxes, reducing government expenditures, pro-life legislation, and pro-2nd Amendment rights.

The VA Governor’s election is significant for several reasons: For the first time in 64 years, the state went to Obama in last years election.  Furthermore, Democrats have held the 2 previous Governor positions; winning this one would make it 3 in a row.

As the GOP needs to return to its conservative roots to win voters, hopefully McDonnell will be a front-runner to the transition.
