Bill Bowling recently emailed his supports, letting them know that last week he had been named Chairman of Mitt Romney's campaign in Virginia – as he was in 2008.
Just today at the Iowa State Fair, Bowling's buddy Mitt Romney told a crowd that "Corporations are people," defending them against increased taxes in favor of cuts to Social Security and Medicare – much to the chagrin of those in attendence. Here is video via Talking Points Memo:
Is this the type of thinking that Bill Bowling thinks we need in Virginia? Is the out-of-touch mentality that the Lieutenant Governor is supporting going to help average Virginian's who are already struggling?
Real families are hurting in Virginia right now. We need solutions and passion – we don't need our elected officials to protect corporate profits, or to promote politicians who do.
