The forum just ended, and it was a total rout of Republican Jill Vogel by Democrat Justin Fairfax. Check out the video, and my live tweets, below. And go Justin Fairfax, our state’s next Lt. Governor!
It’s really amazing how badly @JillHVogel was outclassed, outsmarted and routed by @FairfaxJustin tonight. No contest.
@JillHVogel doesn’t mention how Va. GOP massively politicized the judiciary, kicking Jane Marum Roush off the Supreme Court
@FairfaxJustin correctly points out that @EdWGillespie @JillHVogel @JohnAdamsforVA would be rubber stamps for @realDonaldTrump
@JillHVogel dodges, ducks and weaves to avoid talking about what Betsy DeVos and Donald Trump are doing on Title 9, etc.
As @FairfaxJustin talks facts, @JillHVogel rolling her eyes, smirking, looking at her friends in the audience for a lifeline
@JillHVogel now spewing out falsehoods about Medicaid expansion, which even a number of GOP-controlled states have done.
@JillHVogel really doesn’t want to talk about Medicaid expansion, desperate to change the subject to federal issues. Pathetic.
@JillHVogel blocking 400,000 Virginians from having health insurance and throwing away billions of $$$ for no good reason.
@JillHVogel claims to know a lot about energy, but having worked at @EIAgov for 17 yrs, I can definitively say she does not
@FairfaxJustin – @JillHVogel “addicted to ad hominem attacks”; notes that her primary opponent threatened to sue for defamation
And now @JillHVogel claims she didn’t say @FairfaxJustin was unintelligent, just uninformed. Riiiiiiight.
Why does @JillHVogel keep looking into the audience smiling and smirking? A bit uncomfortable getting her head handed to her?
@FairfaxJustin points out that @JillHVogel just hired another Trump adviser for her campaign, no wonder her campaign’s so vicious
And @JillHVogel’s retort? That @FairfaxJustin, a super-smart guy, is not smart enough to understand her legislation? LOL
@FairfaxJustin correctly points out that @JillHVogel’s transvaginal ultrasound bill made Virginia the laughingstock of the nation
It’s amazing how awkward @JillHVogel looks. Of course, given her horrendous, extremist positions, it’s not so surprising.
Not sure how @FairfaxJustin is restraining himself from laughing at @JillHVogel’s ridiculous, nonsensical, dishonest answers
And now, yet another one of @JillHVogel’s “greatest hits” – her mandatory, government-imposed “transvaginal ultrasound” bill…
@FairfaxJustin pummeling @JillHVogel for her, uh, factually challenged answers and horrible votes in the State Senate
@JillHVogel claims, laughably, that she supports paying for transportation improvements in Virginia, but she voted no to fund it.
BTW, @JillHVogel said “we own an AR-15 and I think they are great”
And now @JillHVogel arguing strongly against raising the minimum wage, even though a majority of Virginia voters support $15/hour #VALGForum
Sure you are – women’s right to choose, people’s right to vote, etc. But you want absolute rights on guns. Priorities, priorities….
In short, @JillHVogel doesn’t believe there should be ANY restrictions on ANY type of gun. That puts her in a tiny minority of Virginians.
Highly revealing to watch @JillHVogel, a few days after Las Vegas gun massacre, not back down AT ALL from her gun extremism. #VALGForum
@JillHVogel shows zero understanding of the constitution if she really thinks that the 2nd amendment means anything goes on weapons.
@JillHVogel doesn’t back down at all from being a tool and puppet of the extremist nutjob NRA.
@JillHVogel saying that any restrictions on guns – even machine guns, etc. – is unconstitutional. Totally out of the mainstream.
