Too Conservative is getting heated

Click here to view Bill Bolling's latest hit ad against Connaughton. This ad is yet again a false attack on Connaughton.I don't understand "conservatives" like Bill Bolling that slam a fellow Republican, when they themselves have the exact same flaw. Bolling admitted in an interview earlier this week that taxes did go up when he was Chairman of Hanover, but that "He never said that they didn't!" and to "Look at my(Bollings) record in the State Senate". TC's message to Bolling: Running Hanover County is substantially different than running a suburban quickly growing County like PWC. Under Connaughton PWC had the #1 job growth rate in America.Okay Bill, thats great that Sean said that Gilmore's fading out of the car tax was "catastrophic", because it was. He left the state in financial ruin.... Virginia's budget isn't getting any smaller, so the money has to come from some place else, some other tax, some other way. Saying Connaughton is endorsed by an organization that backs gay marriage, although it may be true, its simply ridiculous because Connaughton DOESN'T support gay marriage. If Republicans want to win in November, they need Connaughton on the ticket, no doubt about it. I also don't understand candidates like Bolling who want to help NOVA's "transportation" problem, vote to use money from the transportation trust fund, and refuse to raise taxes to get the money. Where will the money come from Bill? and say you get it from somewhere else, what other program has suffered? Connaughton has consistently ALWAYS done what was best for his constituants, and these attacks from the right on Connaughton are simply ridiculous. Connaughton sat down with Gilmore months before Bolling to discuss a possible endorsement, and Connaughton has the endorsement of Pat Robertson, who I highly doubt would be supporting a "Tim Kaine gay lover". Connaughton has not been in a position to vote on the life issue, and the gun issue, but is a conservative on both. As Lieutenant Governor, a mostly ceremonial position, how will Bolling's far right stances do anything to change Virginia? Also a side note on Corey Stewart. He is angry because Connaughton and the rest of the Board have showed him up numerous times, and his blatant attacks against Connaughton should be compared to a teenager acting out on their parents. Connaughton is conservative,and Connaughton SHOULD BE Virginia's next Lieutenant Governor.

Bolling is now whining that Connaughton is attacking him in return and (gasp!) he doesn't like it! Why does Bolling always scream when people start to look at his record (or lack there of)? What is he hiding?

Thanks, TC, for your commentary and excellent site. You are absolutely correct in your assertions and obviously have considerable knowledge of Prince William County politics. Corey has been an embarrassment and will not be reelected.

Bolling's campaign has been rooted in a sense of entitlement from the beginning. He obviously believed that his time as a "good soldier" would/should automatically guarantee his coronation as the next LG. The fact that Sean joined the race much later, has outraised him financially and has stolen his thunder, have clearly exposed the type of "leader" he is (or better yet isn't). If the turnout numbers are there, Sean will win the primary and should win the general handily.

Ouch - all this whining hurts my ears. Sorry, Bolling is pulling away and will cruise to victory on the 14th.

ROFLMAO! Bolling's pulling away from what, the dinner table? If turnout is average or better, Bolling's toast.

I agree, turnout helps Sean. Unfortunately for him, though, Connaughton has been tagged with the 'moderate' label. It may or may not be deserved, I don't really care. All I know is it has stuck.

Most conservatives I know decided long ago to vote Bolling, and as we all know, conservatives are the ones who ultimately vote on primary day.

I simply CAN NOT vote for Bill Bolling, in large part because of the vile, repugnant people he has CHOSEN to associate himself with in PWC. These are not people with whom I disagree on politics, however, they are the most reprehensible people I have ever met. And the literature I have received from Bolling reflects their disgusting personalities very well. They are liars and will cheat anyone to get what they want.

The Connaughton campaign is working hard to achieve their goal in NOVA, and will most likely reach it. This will be close

Bolling's response to this "endorsement" is repugnant. Why can't he EVER act like a Virginia gentleman?
