Virginia News Headlines: Friday Morning


Here are a few Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Friday, October 28.

*Obama dines in Arlington with four campaign donors (Ahhh…so that’s what was going on at Liberty Tavern in Arlington last night! See photo, courtesy of The Obama Diary)

*U.S. economy grows nearly twice as fast in 3rd quarter (in spite of Republican’ts doing everything they can to kill every effort by President Obama and Congressional Democrats to help make things better!)

*Webb: Government needs moderate leaders to solve issues (“Debate in the U.S. Senate has become ‘totally paralyzed’ because Republicans are deliberately blocking legislation, Webb said.” — CORRECT!)

*Houck gets endorsement from ex-Sen. Chichester (continues the trend we’ve seen this year of moderate Republican former State Delegates and Senators endorsing Democrats)

*McDonnell, pursuing Lockheed Martin, says Maryland is less friendly to business

*Herman Cain to return to Virginia next month (Go Hermanator! LOL)

*Democrats accuse GOP of scaring Va. voters with unsolicited texts

*Democrats train sights on gun issues in Northern Virginia races (So, Caren Merrick, when are you going to keep your promise to release your NRA survey? Or, are you going to break that one?)

*George Mason professor flies unwanted dogs to new homes

*Va. House hopeful admits ‘sexual relations’ with minor (Isn’t that known as “rape?”)

*Last debate of campaign season sees few residents in Prince William (wow, that is truly pitiful)

*McDonnell will not rule out state layoffs (Bob McDonnell once again proves he is NOT “for jobs”)

*Editorial: Don Langrehr in the 12th House District (“Our decision was reinforced this week by disappointment at Yost’s announcement that he would not participate in an important candidate forum sponsored by the Montgomery County League of Women Voters Thursday evening.”)

*Cuccinelli backs ad campaign to stop texting and driving

*McDonnell to announce plan to hire hundreds in Isle of Wight County

*The low odds, high impact October snow scenario

UPDATE: I love this — Republican’ts increasingly worried about the American people actually SEEING their crazy candidates debating! Brilliant.
