In case you missed it, Kerry Dougherty states for the GOP to win a statewide race this year, they need a candidate like Del. Kirk Cox as the nominee. Cox provides proven conservative leadership and a demeanor appealing to every Virginian.
The GOP is struggling in Virginia. Face it, when Democrats nominate nuts they win elections. When Republicans do the same they lose.
But the new far-left majority in Richmond may have gone too far with its attacks on law enforcement and gun owners, Northam’s endless emergency orders and out-of-control parole board. Oh, and absurd laws like the one that gives driving privileges to illegal aliens.
The best chance for the GOP to win a statewide race is not by chasing the crazy vote, but with a candidate like Del. Kirk Cox
Bottom line: Cox provides the opportunity for the GOP to send an effective leader to the Governorship and end a decades long drought in statewide elections.
