Frank Wolf Gets a Strong Challenger?

by: lowkell

Tue Jun 21, 2011 at 14:29:46 PM EDT



I had a chance to meet General John Douglass a couple weeks ago, and was very impressed. I definitely feel like he's a strong challenger to Frank Wolf, aka the rubber stamp for John Boehner and Eric Can'tor's radical, right-wing agenda in the House of Representatives. Clearly, 2012 should be the year that Frank Wolf is sent to a well-deserved retirement, and replaced by someone like General John Douglass. Anyway, check out the press release and well-made video and see what you think.
Our country is under tremendous stress.  But too many in Washington are playing political games instead of facing up to the challenges of jobs, energy, transportation, education, health care, national security, and more.

I've served this nation for over three decades. I've served presidents of both parties.  I rose to the rank of General because I have a proven record of standing up, taking on the tough fights, and winning them.

That's why I've decided to run for Congress. I hope that you'll join me.

This won't be easy.  My opponent has been in Congress for decades, getting a free pass for too long.  As I've talked with my neighbors throughout Virginia's 10th district, I've heard them loud and clear: It's time for an independent voice and a focus on practical solutions to our nation's challenges.

We face grave challenges.  But when it comes to America, failure is not an option.

Here's what you can do:  Watch my announcement video and share it with your friends.  Visit JohnDouglassForCongress.com to learn more and endorse my candidacy.  Make a financial donation to kick off our campaign.  Share your ideas with me on Facebook.

There's a long road ahead.  And today, we take the first step.

John

Brigadier General John Douglass (ret.)

Will He Move? (0.00 / 0)
Both the Democratic plan and the Republican plan for redistricting moves his home out of Wolf's district. The Republicans put him in the 5th, the Democrats in the 1st. Will he run in whatever district he ends up in or move to run against Wolf?

This thing's almost certainly going to court (0.00 / 0)
I'm very curious to see how that plays out first, before speculating on whether various candidates across Virginia, including new ones like Gen. Douglass, might no longer be in their former districts. Even then, though, as Morgan Griffith showed last year, you can still run - and win - even if you don't actually live in the district.

Someone should teach him about not spamming (0.00 / 0)
I got his announcement email yesterday, and, having never heard of him before, I obviously didn't sign up for his email list.

Other recent, notable offenders include Mark Habeeb and Barbara Favola.
