In Loudoun Times Mirror “Themes of the Race,” Comstock Only Offers Baseless Attacks
 
A  Loudoun Times Mirror article exploring the “recurring themes” of the race for the 10th district revealed a stark contrast between LuAnn Bennett and Congresswoman Barbara Comstock.
 
Here are some key takeaways from the article: 
 
Comstock offered no policy solutions for voters: Congresswoman Barbara Comstock and her political operatives offered no positive policy solutions for voters – only baseless, partisan attacks and well-worn Republican talking points. 
 
LuAnn Bennett offered details on tackling tough issues facing the 10th: LuAnn Bennett outlined how she plans to address the issues affecting the 10th district, including equal pay for equal work:
 
“[Bennett’s camp] responded by saying the candidate ‘will champion major investments in our infrastructure to improve Northern Virginia’s roads and Metro system, support small businesses … fight for universal pre-K and more affordable college and work to ensure women receive equal pay for equal work.’”
 
Comstock is a partisan operative to her core: Comstock’s obsession with tearing opponents down is nothing new. Last month, Comstock was found personally directing political attacks against Bennett. And long before holding elected office, Comstock established herself as a Republican party operative and opposition researcher; a partisan the Washington Post called a “one-woman wrecking crew” who’s pointless investigations cost taxpayers nearly $80 million. Comstock even had the audacity to level a Trumpian attack on Bennett, calling her “sad” for sending mailers about equal pay to voters in the 10th CD.

“Barbara Comstock has spent her entire career tearing people down, so it’s no surprise her negative campaign cannot muster a single positive message for the voters,” said Emily Bolton of the Democratic Party of Virginia. “LuAnn has spent her career building a successful business and is focused on improving Northern Virginia’s roads, schools, and small businesses. As the article shows, voters have a clear choice between Barbara Comstock, a political operative obsessed with tearing people down and LuAnn Bennett, a small businesswoman focused on building Northern Virginia up.”
