But while Virginia Virtucon fell a bit with some misleading stories about convention delegates, I wanted to give them credit for their endorsement, which they actually made back in February and have repeated today. Like me, they are not in the 51st district. But their post is one about positives, not negatives.
And while I am not endorsing their assessment or conclusion, I wanted to highlight a paragraph I do agree with:
We are faced with two solid Republican candidates with excellent conservative credentials. More than that, most of us have known both Faisal Gill and Julie Lucas personally for quite some time. In an ideal world, we would not be faced with deciding between these two individuals. It is truly unfortunate that Prince William County cannot be served by both of them in the General Assembly.
I too wish there could have been two contests for these two candidates.
The also say this about Gill:
Faisal has supported and encouraged Virtucon contributors over the years and we truly wish that circumstances were different this year and we could return the favor right now.
Make no mistake, though, that if Faisal wins the nomination, we will do everything in our power to help get him elected in November.
Faisal Gill is a good person and, having been exonerated of all charges, we feel that Faisal could be a very good candidate. He is, in our opinion, receiving very poor treatment by others in the mainstream media and elsewhere.
Whichever candidate wins, we will all need to work hard to beat the Democrat. The job will be much harder because of the invective of the Gill-haters, which has now spilled over into them hosting attacks on Lucas as well. So whichever candidate wins, the opposition will have a stream of trash at BVBL to use (unless BVBL wises up and deletes it).
