If Only Rick Waugh Had More Money…and More Time!


    It’s really too bad that 7th CD Democratic nominee Rick Waugh doesn’t have more money and more time, because his ads against Eric Can’tor have been both well made and hard-hitting, and Waugh himself seems to be developing nicely as a candidate. For a five-part interview with Waugh, see The Richmonder. And, if you have a few extra dollars to spare and enjoy the thought of this ad staying on the air a bit longer, click here. As for the argument that Waugh doesn’t have a shot against Can’tor, I’d just point out that Patrick Murray has zero chance against Jim Moran, yet he’s raising and spending a lot of money in his race. Why?  To tie down Moran, obviously, so Moran can’t help Gerry Connolly and other Democrats in more competitive districts. A clever strategy, one Democrats might want to try sometime.
