#GameOnVA

With Tuesday's primaries out of the way, the field is set for November's elections. The statewide contests have received the bulk of the attention (well, two of the three) but we also have the 100-member House of Delegates contests. My congratulations to all of the nominees. To those not chosen, thank you for offering to … Continue reading #GameOnVA

Like drinking from a firehose
