Someone Fighting Back?!

We briefly pointed out that Americans for Prosperity is taking on the tax increase battle down in Richmond. The group is of course headed up by Paul Harris, former Delegate from Charlottesville, and Rob Whitney, former Connaughton Campaign Manager. Whitney Duff, former Del Saxman staffer, is also on board with the team. Via Norm over at OMT we see that the AFP team launched a radio ad campaign across Virginia today. The actual spot can be heard here at the AFP- Virginia website. Solid spot and should be interesting to see what "buzz" is built up around this campaign. I encourage everyone to go and sign the "No Tax Hike" petition that are kicking around the state as well. It is good to see someone standing up against this increase though. We needed that two years ago.

We need to write the tax increase into the constitution. I'm afraid it will be changed.

I think VA Club for Growth has been doing this for some time.

Club for Growth has done very little. They are partisan 'bomb throwers' that have not learned how to sell a message to the average Virginian.

CFG is not even respected within the GOP let alone the average Virginian. It's a shame cause CFG is a great group in other states, but pathetic in Virginia. They did nothing in 2004 and only whined and bickered in 2005.

I believe CFG took a very strong stand publicly against the tax increase and they also opposed legislators who supported it after claiming they were against tax increases. You can debate their effectiveness, but they did "stand up" as TC says.

Time for new approaches. This one might actually work. Regardless of how you feel about Club for Growths effectiveness in the past, present or future we need all 'hands on deck' for this one!

I hope CFG and the other groups will be working hard to mobilize people in this battle.

Maybe if they support Republican candidates, I will support them.

I am not one to easily forgive and forget..and they hurt us last election, no doubt about it.
