With the November Midterm Elections rapidly approaching, voters are turning their eyes to many key federal races.
Right now, you and I have the opportunity to set the pace for the Midterm Elections by electing a solid Republican majority right here in Virginia.
Not only that, but whoever wins this race will tip the balance of power in the Virginia State Senate.
The fact is, politics is a zero-sum game.
I know from personal experience the very real difference between a Democrat and Republican majority in the Virginia State Senate.
For many years, the Senate of Virginia had a well-earned reputation as a place where good legislation went to die. This was especially true during my first two years as Attorney General.
The Democrats in charge during those years used their majority to stop conservative and pro-liberty legislation right in its tracks.
When the Democrats regained control of the Senate earlier this year, they redeployed their obstructionist tactics. For more than three months, they refused to approve a budget – one of the legislature's foremost responsibilities – unless House Republicans caved in to the Obamacare Medicaid expansion scheme.
Legislation approved by the House of Delegates to defend Second Amendment rights, protect innocent human life, preserve liberties, and promote free markets died in Democrat-controlled Senate Committees.
Conservative principles and traditional values need not apply.
The difference between a conservative Republican Senate and an Obama-McAuliffe Democrat Senate is just one vote.
And the Special Election in Virginia's 38th District will determine whether Virginia embraces the extreme left-wing agenda of Barack Obama and Terry McAuliffe.
Today, you and I have a chance to advance conservative principles by electing a Republican majority in the State Senate.
