Ed Gillespie, a longtime Washington insider who has never held elected office, faces off against Prince William County Board of Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart and state Sen. Frank Wagner. The winner will be charged with trying to lead a GOP resurgence in a state that used to be as reliably Republican as any in the country, but where Democrats have been dominant in recent years.

“Another wipeout, you can flip the switch: Virginia goes from purple to blue — it becomes New Jersey,” said John Fredericks, a conservative radio host who is backing Mr. Gillespie and served as a delegate for Donald Trump last year at the Republican National Convention.

Mr. Gillespie has consistently polled ahead of his rivals, and led the money chase — entering the homestretch of the campaign with $2.4 million cash on hand. He also has scored a slew of endorsements — having racked up the support of 67 of the 87 Republican members of the state General Assembly, a majority of the members on Republican State Central Committee and over 30 local party chairs, according to his campaign.

    Most of my ancestors lived in Virginia and are buried there, and ALL of them who fought in Lincoln’s war against a southern American nation called the Confederacy are buried there. What a great shame that Democrats are even permitted to live there. For those of you who do not know the true history of Lincoln’s war, the GOP was the government then that invaded the south, and the Democrats were the true Americans of that time. These days things are reversed. The Dems are the phony Americans.

    Why is it that every election since President Trump won is now a “referendum on Trump”? That is, until the Republican wins. IN April, Kansas has a special election for Congress. It was the “first test of the Trump effect”, until the Republican won and then the media lost interest. In May the Montana elections was to “test voters reaction to the Trump Presidency”, again until the Republican won. (Then, of course, it was mindless voters sending a person who admitted assaulting a reporter to Washington.) Now we have a Congressional race in GA next week and the GOV in VA later this year. If Republicans keep winning, how will we ever be able to believe the media any longer?

    THEY HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VA. JUST ACROSS THE LINE FROM DC AND THE FEMA CAMPS THAT OBAMA BUILT. TRUMP SHOULD PULL A RAID ON THE BUNKER THAT OBAMA BUILT IN DC.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA AND CAN DE-CLASSIFY ANYTHING HE WANTS TO REGARDING GET THE JOB DONE. HE NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES?

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.
