Everything I know about the man proves him to be a fighter. He sets a goal ... and he does not give up until he achieves that goal. He has the extensive experience necessary to represent the Commonwealth well as our U.S. Senator.
Mason Conservative posted 10 questions he would like to hear answered by Mark Warner and concluded:
So before all the silliness and cheap tricks, I would LOVE to see Mark Warner, before next fall, answer any of these questions in detail. Its clear Jim Gilmore is ready to talk about every single one of these issues head on."Our candidate is a street fighter and won't back down."
Since Mark Warner has announced, where has he been? What has he done? Has he taken a stance on ANY of the major issues before Congress? How would he vote on important bills in the Senate? Nobody is asking Mark Warner questions because the established MSM desperatly wants him to win so they won't challenge him.
Luckily, despite everything else, our candidate is a street fighter and won't back down. If the DC Post and any ther publication won't ask Warner the tough questions, at least Gilmore will. [emphasis mine]
That is only one reason why I feel Jim Gilmore can and will win the U.S. Senate seat in November 2008. He is determined, he has laid the groundwork and begun raising money, he started talking last summer with GOP grassroots leaders and listened to what they had to say, he has a fire in his belly, and he wants it.
More than anything else ... he wants it. He is ready and willing to go up against the Mark Warner Machine.
Mark Warner won ONE campaign in the past -- has everyone forgotten he lost to John Warner? -- so his track record is 50%. But he is now going up against a seasoned veteran of the political game.
Jim Gilmore has served as an attorney, army intelligence specialist, prosecutor and state attorney general, and then was elected the 68th Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. He has never stopped giving to his state and is willing to serve again.
My money is on Gilmore. Let the games begin!
