To say the Virginia home school community was on fire for Ken Cuccinelli is an understatement. Parents worked for months collecting signatures on petitions, hosting meet-and-greets, spreading the word, and signing up as delegates to the RPV Convention.

So ... did the home schooling community make the difference for Ken Cuccinelli? And can they become a viable voice in Virginia politics?
