Remember Tareq Salahi who crashed the Obama’s White house dinner with his wife in 2009? 

Well, now he is promising to Crash the Vote by running as a candidate in Virginia's 2013 gubernatorial race. To add to his resume, he is being filmed by the upcoming reality show, In it to Win it, a show documenting the life of a candidate on the stump.

One of his stops is SWAC Political Breakfast so here is your chance to ask the candidate the hard questions. And yes, do expect to get some downright candid answers.

For a different point of view, come hear Tareq, running as an Independent Republican, as he asks undecided voters to crash the party lines and “Crash the Vote” with SALAHI.

About Tareq Salahi
Television personality Tareq Salahi has returned to his passion and roots and is running for Governor of Virginia as a modern post-partisan candidate who has a proven history of successfully working across party lines to do what is right for the people of Virginia.

Tareq is running as a Republican because he is fiscally conservative, just like Virginia. He knows that without a strong economy and job creation, we generate less revenue to support our schools, public safety departments, roads and infrastructure, healthcare, and other services and we all pay the price. Beyond that, he has moderate social views and believes that the government should stay out of our private lives and personal choices.

Tareq was raised and has lived in Virginia his entire life. He graduated from Randolph-Macon Military Academy in Front Royal, Virginia, as Squadron Commander. He continued his education with a Bachelor of Science degree in Enology & Business Management from the College of Agriculture and Environmental Studies at the University of California-Davis to help his father at their family vineyard.
Tareq was appointed early on in his career by Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore, followed in succession with three further appointments by Virginia Governors, both Republican, and Democrat -- including Mark Warner and Tim Kaine -- to serve the Commonwealth.

He was directly involved in shaping policy that helped create jobs in Virginia, and both authored and supported legislation beneficial to numerous small businesses and family farms which passed with resounding bipartisan support in the Virginia Legislature. He has supported and contributed heavily to both political parties. His early years in politics included working on the Steering Committee for the DNC’s "Rock the Vote" movement aimed at activating the youth vote.

Current Governor Bob McDonnell has worked hard to keep Virginia the economic success that it is today. Tareq will continue the Governor's good efforts to keep government spending on target and taxes low as well as creating new programs and opportunities to promote job growth and strengthen our economy in the Commonwealth. He will work with the private sector and federal, state and local government to come together to ensure Virginia’s success.
