Craddock

A recent story from the national review online focuses on anti-tax challenger Chris Craddock's victory over Delegate Gary Reese. The article discusses the positive attributes Craddock brings to the ticket, while stating the work that still has to be done before November. Incumbent Gary Reese still has thousands of dollars left over from his campaign, it will be interesting to see what he does with the money. Craddock's new challenger , Chuck Caputo has also been active in the community, but it does not seem that he has the ground support that Craddock does. Over at the VA delegate blog, it's stated that Caputo is currently in Europe. Regardless, Craddock does have a fairly difficult race to deal with, but TC hopes it all works out, and throws his support 100% behind Chris the Conservative Craddock. Also-TC wants to thank John Behan for his post this morning.

I am amazed by this spin on Craddock. Didn't Reese vote against the tax package at the end of the day?

reese voted FOR increasing taxes , but not by "the full one billion dollars". Theres no question Craddock was the conservative in that race.

Since Reese voted against the tax increase, doesn't his loss mean a defeat for the anti-taxers and Craddock's win a victory for the pro-taxers?

that logic is very interesting. As I stated above, Reese DID vote for the billion dollar tax increase

"very interesting logic" indeed too conservative.
At 9:19 you say "reese voted FOR increasing taxes, but not by "the full one billion dollars"."
At 5:46 you say "As I stated above, Reese DID vote for the billion dollar tax increase".

No you didn't.

You left an important factor out of your commentary on the race in the 67th district - me. I am the Libertarian candidate. I believe in free market solutions to lower the cost of government. While Craddock is on record as favoring low taxes, he has not said how he will cut spending to allow for that.

Please, on future commentary about the race in the 67th, do not exclude me. If I do not outright win this race, I will likely have a profound effect on its outcome.

Thank you,

Chuck Eby
Libertarian Candidate for the 67th District
