George Allen receives more endorsements

The endorsements continue to roll in for former Governor George Allen who is running for the U.S. Senate.

Senator Stephen Martin, Chesterfield
“I am a proud supporter of George Allen’s campaign for U.S. Senate.  George understands the issues important to Virginians and will fight for them as our Senator. He stood for common sense conservatism in the Governor’s office proven by a track record of great success. His pro-growth, pro-business reforms helped to make Virginia one of the most competitive States for business with 300,000 net new private sector jobs added during his tenure. He also reformed welfare, provided education accountability, ended Virginia's revolving door justice system and fought for a true parental notification bill.  These are the kind of issues Virginians care about.  He knows Virginia and will fight effectively for us.  That is why we need George Allen to be elected as our Senator.”

Senator Ryan McDougle, Mechanicsville“George Allen is the strong conservative voice we need in the U.S. Senate.  As Governor, George Allen fostered an environment of economic growth that created 300,000 net new jobs.  In these tough economic times, Virginians are looking for real leadership to reinvigorate our economy and get people back to work.  I support George Allen for U.S. Senate because he will stand up for common sense, conservative solutions and fight for Virginia.”

Senator Walter Stosch, Glen Allen“We need a Senator who will fight for Virginia.  George Allen will be that Senator.  Under Governor Allen, we worked together to eliminate state income taxes on social security benefits for our seniors and established the first system of Public Private Partnerships in the nation.  He has worked tirelessly throughout his career to preserve and create jobs, empower small business and rein in government spending.  These are among the many reasons I endorse George Allen for U.S. Senate.”

Senator John Watkins, Midlothian “George Allen has the kind of leadership that Congress needs.  He led Virginia through tough times and he can lead the country through tough times.”

Delegate John Cox, Ashland “As a business owner and part-time legislator, I understand what Virginia needs most are jobs for its citizens and George Allen is keenly aware of that as well.  I know I can count on his experience and leadership skills to help create good paying jobs for Virginians.  With his common sense conservative approach he will fight to keep Washington DC off the backs of small business owners and give them the freedom to prosper and grow our economy.  Join me in supporting George Allen for U.S.”

Delegate Kirk Cox, Colonial Heights “I have worked with George Allen for more than 20 years starting when we were Delegates together in 1990, later when he was the Commonwealth's Governor and when he was our Senator.  George Allen is a man of integrity, good ideas, and a leader with a vision who knows the best way forward is based on our nation's founding principles.  We need him in Washington to be a force for moving our country out of the present morass to the nation we should be with confidence in ourselves as we build a solid future for our children.”

Delegate Riley Ingram, Hopewell“George Allen has achieved significant accomplishments for the people of Virginia and I am proud to support him for the U.S. Senate.  He is a strong leader who is ready to restore fiscal responsibility in Washington and put America back on the path to prosperity.  Virginians have sent a clear message to Washington that they will no longer stand for business as usual in Washington.  George Allen has a long record of making real reforms and changing the way government operates.   We need his common sense conservative leadership in Washington.”

Delegate Manoli Loupassi, Richmond“George Allen is the strong conservative leader we need in the U.S. Senate and I am proud to support his campaign.  He has a record of success in Virginia making pro-growth reforms that helped foster the environment that created hundreds of thousands of jobs.  We need George Allen’s bold leadership in Washington to unleash our energy resources and get our economy back on track.”

Delegate Jimmie Massie, Richmond“George Allen has a long and proven track record of standing strong for Virginians.  I am proud to endorse him and his campaign for U.S. Senate.  As Governor, he made major pro-growth reforms that helped open the doors for hundreds of thousands of new jobs in Virginia.  With national unemployment stuck at 9% and chaos in Washington, we desperately need a common sense conservative leader like George Allen to promote pro-growth and job creating public policies.”

Delegate John O’Bannaon, Richmond
“George Allen will fight for the conservative values important to Virginians.  He has the pro-growth plan of action that we need to help reinvigorate our economy.  This election will be crucial to determining the direction of our nation for years to come, and we need strong leaders like George Allen representing our voices in Washington.  I’m proud to stand with George Allen and help him become Virginia’s next U.S. Senator.”
Delegate Chris Peace, Mechanicsville"George Allen is the conservative we need serving in the U.S. Senate. He is resolute in his belief that a smaller government leads to greater freedom and prosperity. In this time of economic uncertainty and global conflict, Virginia needs this kind of steady and capable leader. George Allen is the right man for this important job."

Delegate Roxann Robinson, Richmond“I am pleased to announce my support of Governor George Allen in his campaign to win the 2012 Senatorial Republican Primary.  Governor Allen is committed to getting America back on the right track.  His past experience with Washington politics will allow him to hit the ground running with good old common sense. He is committed to cut government spending and is dedicated to creating jobs in America for Americans.”

Delegate Edward Scott, Culpeper
“I believe that George Allen is exactly the person we need in Washington to put an end to the unbridled growth of government and reckless spending.  George Allen knows how to work across party lines to get things done, and his time as Governor was marked by successful government reforms that made Virginia a model for the nation.  I know George Allen will never back down from defending Virginia’s values, and I am glad to give him my wholehearted support.”

Why is it that no one who endorses George Allen ever talks about what he did when he was a Senator?
Is it because he was just another establishment Republican who voted for every spending bill that came down the pike? Is it because that as Senator he demonstrated that he is not a Conservative; that he is willing to spend just as much as any other professional establishment politician? If you believe that the spending has to stop, and the government needs to be reduced to the levels authorized in the Constitution, then you need to look seriously at supporting Radtke.
