The 5 Most Common Myths About a Perriello Candidacy


Hi folks!

I’ll put a better into on my bio later, but for a brief introduction: My name is Kyle Gardiner, and I’m a Junior at Virginia Tech. Following Jim Webb’s retirement announcement, I’ve decided to try to pick up blogging again to push for Tom Perriello in 2012. Following the numerous ‘draft’ movements that have sprung up, and watching angrily as the media declared Tim Kaine Virginia Democrats’ top pick, I really believe there needs to be a more sustained narrative developed to explain to those who haven’t been following Tom Perriello’s career why he’s above and beyond the best choice both for Virginia Democrats and the Commonwealth in 2012.

With that said, I’ll first present to you my counterarguments against what I’ve seen as the 5 most prolific myths used in arguments against supporting Tom Perriello as the Democratic nominee for Senate. They are in no particular order other than context–reading from #5-#1 will make a little bit more sense!

Without further ado, I present to you myth number five: “Tom lacks the campaign and elected office experience that other candidates have.”

EDIT: Link added into the story.

Myth 4: “Tom Perriello is a one-hit wonder.” is now up!
