NotAndySere Skewers Dick Saslaw for Conceding Hurt Senate Seat


Over on Twitter, NotAndySere is having a field day – and for good reason – skewering State Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw (D-35th) for not wanting to “waste our money” by putting up a candidate for Sen. Robert Hurt’s Senate seat, soon to be vacant as Hurt heads to Washington (unfortunately). I’ll let NotAndySere take it from there.

#VADemocrats meltdown continues! http://bit.ly/bYgHs4 Dems won’t contest @RobertHurt’s State Senate Seat . . . continued

Saslaw compares Dem running in special in Southside to GOP running in Alexandria. Did he miss this special election? http://bit.ly/dybNyn

(“this special election” refers to Democrat Charniele Herring winning in deep-blue Alexandria in January 2009  by just 16 votes out of 2,672 cast)

@NotLarrySabato You’ve got to love Saslaw’s quote saying you wouldn’t see GOP running in special in Alexandria after 2009 debacle.

@notlarrysabato http://bit.ly/bYgHs4 “If this were a vacant seat in Alexandria, you wouldn’t see a Republican.” 2009: http://bit.ly/dybNyn

Bottom line: you can’t win if you don’t play, and Dick Saslaw says we ain’t playin’. Greaaaaat.
