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.

Primary Challenges

In light of the new Senate vote on Tuesday, it will be interesting to see how it changes the primary challenge situation.
Certainly Russ Potts will still be challenged for running against Kilgore. Other than him, who else might be on the list?
Chichester, Stosch, and Stolle all voted for the new budget that does not include tax increases. Even a few dems voted for it.
As for the House, there should be no challanges there either.

One of my friends said back when the budget battle started that the Senate would think twice this time around since they are up for election in 2 years just like the House. Does that mean they will then return to their tax raising ways in 2008?

The Senate ringleaders may still face challengers, but my guess is that very few if any of the accomplices will be challenged in '07.

One good thing from this is that hopefully it will make the GOP base happy and they be sure to vote in 2007. If Ken Cuccinelli was right about that being our problem in 2005, that might be enough to save him and his friend Jay O'Brien.

Has anyone seen or heard any possible challenges, in light of the new vote?

    This won't effect Pott's because he has stated several times over the past year that he will not be seeking another term.

    I hope so, I just don't see him making it that easy on us.
    That is unless he gets a appointment btw now and then.
