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.

    Can we talk about how disturbing it is that Lingamfelter is contemplating statewide office?

    10:16, he may be angling for speaker; I am not sure yet.
    Its even possible he wants to take on Chichester (I think he lives in the district but I am not positive).

    If Lingamfelter challenges Chichester, just tell me where to send the check!
