LibertyNEWS.com’s Norvell Rose traveled to a special event in Virginia where Mark Levin showed up to personally endorse Ken Cuccinelli for Governor. The endorsement took place on Constitution Day. The Virginia Governor race will be the biggest race in the nation this November and LibertyNEWS.com will be here to cover the campaigns beginning in...
It’s very tempting to ignore any state’s governor’s race if it’s an election in which you can’t vote, and where the issues being debated don’t directly affect your life in any immediately noticeable way. Break the mold today. Take a few minutes to learn why you should care about who goes home a winner and who gets sent home a loser in Virginia’s gubernatorial contest this November. Virginia and South Carolina are two governor’s races Conservatives can actually win this Fall, so Liberty will be keeping an eye on those races and periodically giving you the inside scoop on these elections from now until November. WHAT’S SO IMPORTANT ABOUT VIRGINIA ANYWAY? VA is an important political symbol. The Commonwealth of VA was settled as the first permanent English settlement in the New World. The state went on to give America eight presidents – including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. VA is home to no fewer than two dozen major military installations, including The Pentagon, Earth’s largest naval base – Naval Station Norfolk, and Air Combat Command HQ – Langley Air Force Base. VA also holds 13 electoral votes, which until recently, traditionally were earned by Conservative presidential candidates. Barack Hussein Obama changed VA’s electoral history seemingly overnight in 2008 and again in 2012. Obama won VA by 150,000 votes, claiming all 13 electoral votes and transforming the once powerful Conservative Stronghold into a swing state. In-fact, Obama’s VA victories alarmed so many Conservatives in VA that State Senator Charles “Bill” Carrico sponsored SB 723 which, had it not failed in Jan. 2013, would have reapportioned VA’s electoral votes from “winner take all” to regional apportionment. Had the bill been introduced and become law before Obama’s 2012 victory, The President would have only taken 4 electoral votes from VA and Mitt Romney would have taken 9, reports The Virginian Pilot. In short, the winner of November’s VA gubernatorial election gets to help shape the economic future of a swing state with a huge military population that can determine who becomes President 2016. WHO’S RUNNING FOR GOVERNOR? Ken Cuccinelli is VA’s current Attorney General. He’s also a strong Roman Catholic Conservative. Ken is facing a strong challenge from the fundraising genius behind Hillary Clinton’s rise to successful Liberal political stardom – Terry McAuliffe. Later updates will give you more information on...
