Don’t Know Who to Vote For in the Virginia Democratic Lt. Governor Primary?


The primary’s just two weeks away and a lot of people I talk to know very little if anything about the Democratic LG candidates. However, they’re starting to realize that in two weeks, they’re going to need to make a choice.  With that, here are some debates and forums they’ve participated in recently (and that I managed to procure video of). Also check out their websites, of course: Justin Fairfax, Susan Platt and Gene Rossi.

    I wanted to hear from the candidates and not from the bozo sitting to the left. This discussion is a waste of time.

    I’ve been leaning toward Fairfax after I found out that Platt has spent the last couple decades as a corporate lobbyist – including for tobacco giant Altria.

    Lord knows we have more than enough of those types in public office. I’d rather take my chances with a young African American candidate who represents new opportunities for the future, thanks.
