Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Special Elections

Thanks to SST for the update. The special elections will be on January 3rd to replace Bill Bolling's vacated 4th district Senate seat as well as the 3rd HOD seat that has been vacated by Jackie Stump who has resigned. I will try to find out why Stump has resigned and who will be running for the seat.
Don't forget, if McDougle wins the 4th Senate seat, another special election will be triggered for his 97th HOD seat. Also, there is wide speculation that Senator Bill Mims will be picked as Deputy AG if McDonnell wins, so they would trigger a special election in the 33rd Senate seat as well.
Its going to be a very eventful next few weeks across the Commonwealth.

    Mims's seat is centered around Leesburg, as I recall. I wonder if Dick Black will run?

    Sounds as though Dick Black's son-in-law Mike Staton (Loudoun BOS) will run for the seat.

    Leesburg is split between the 27th (Potts) and the 33rd (Mims). The 33rd extends east into part of Fairfax. It is one of the fastset growing districts in Virginia.
