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.

Lingamfelter for LG?

I reported a few days ago that the rumor was that Del. Scott Lingamfelter would be challenging Sen. John Chichester in the 2007 GOP primary.
It appears that will probably not happen, and instead it looks like he will be running for LG in 2009. I have heard this through several sources and that would make more sense for him to have had the suite at the advance as well as the editorial "Why Republicans Lose". This is also good news for the GOP House caucus in that it will not have another open seat to defend in 2007.

I am sure there will be a challenger to Chichester, but it doesn't sound like its going to be Lingamfelter. Over at Mason Conservative, Shaun Kenney says he knows who is challenging Chichester; so I suppose we will know soon enough (its not Shaun, he moved out of the district last year).

    I can promise you -- it's not me.

    It isn't me, either. They redistricted me out of Chichester's district a few years ago.

    As far as defending Lingamfelter's seat, Coles Supevisor Marty Nohe would easily be able to hold the seat for the GOP.

    Shaun, perhaps you would like to shed some light into who is running against the "Senator from Stafford"

    He mainly lives in Reedville in Northumberland now, although he keeps his Stafford home.

    If Shaun Kenney is in the know, it's a candidate that will not win. Write that down.

    Bold and Fearless Prediction from a cowardly unnamed commenter. Gotta love it.

    Critique of an anonymous comment by a pseudonymous commenter. Classless.
