Kenny Golden, independent candidate in the Virginia 2nd Congressional District who proposes a widened conflict in Afghanistan and war in Pakistan announced via tweet that he is off to court Ron Paul’s support today. Golden, who sailed by Pakistan in the navy, justifies the incursion by citing the tragedy of 9/11.
A Virginian Pilot reporter suggests that an endorsement from Paul could generate significant Hampton Roads Tea Party support. But, this fanciful scenario requires the Congressman from Texas to abandon the Republican Party candidate, Scott Rigel, and reverse his position on the adventures in Southwest Asia.
Golden has garnered the endorsement of another Texan, Democrat Kinky Friedman. Support from Virginians is less forthcoming.
