Failed Chairman Stewart appearing with ‘mediocre’ former Senator Allen
Richmond, VA – Republican Chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors Corey Stewart will appear today with George Allen, a candidate whom Stewart once described as “mediocre,” “part of the problem, not the solution,” and “the Brett Favre of politics.”
Meanwhile, Allen, who is expected to receive Stewart’s endorsement to recapture the U.S. Senate seat he lost in 2006 (a seat for which Stewart contemplated a primary challenge until recently) may want to think twice before draping his arm around a candidate with Stewart’s divisive and mean-spirited approach to government that has left many of his constituents behind.
“There are no two people who better embody what is wrong with the Republican Party in Virginia than Corey Stewart and George Allen,” said DPVA Chairman Brian Moran. “Instead of putting Prince William first, Stewart has used his office to demonize people and prepare himself for a future run for office.
“Perhaps the best thing Stewart has done recently is to rightly identify George Allen as a failed Senator who helped create our current economic mess in the first place. Unfortunately it looks like he’s planning to flip flop on those words out of political convenience.
“Virginians deserve better leadership than what they’ve gotten out of Republicans like George Allen and Corey Stewart, that’s why we’re working so hard to get results-oriented Democrats like Babur Lateef and Tim Kaine elected.”
