In 2008, Virginia Democrats accomplished great things. For the first time in 44 years, our state went Democratic. How wonderful that we went blue for the first time in 44 years to make Barack Obama our 44th President. In January, Virginia will have two Democratic United States Senators and a 6-5 majority in our House delegation. Mission accomplished!

Scope for 2009: Your mission as VA Democrats, should you choose to accept it, is to maintain the Governor's mansion, Defeat Bill Bolling, win the Attorney General's seat and take back our House of Delegates for the people of this Commonwealth. Momentum is on our side, but history is not. It has been that the party that wins the White House, loses the Governor's race in the following year. But, we are Virginia Democrats, and in Virginia, anything is possible. Our work is cut out for us and there is no time to waste. McDonnell and the Republican slime machine is gearing up for a nasty year. Sleazeball politics will be at its best. Let us stay above the fray. We are Virginia Democrats, we dont play thier games. We play the peoples game and campaign on issues.

I'm ready to win, and continue the legacy that Mark Warner helped start seven years ago. Lets get to it!

I would finally like to wish everyone a safe a happy holiday season!

We're going to do it...

We're going to change the traditions. Healthy competition and debate is good, but I think we all know that there isn't time to be divided once everyone needs to be on one page. If we can remember that, we can keep the the momentum going.

two most important

Win the Gov and take 6 new house seats: control redistricting! Is there a way to gerrymander all 49 remaining Rs and Is into one seat?
