Barely 24 hours prior to the only thing approaching a debate in the Va 37 special election campaign Dugout Dave dodges going head to head with Steve Hunt by suddenly discovering a “scheduling conflict”.
I can only imagine that his fear of losing conflicts with his desire to win…or maybe he is just still waiting to find a permanent home in the district he wants to represent.
My delegate is doing a lot of dodging…judging from this analysis he apparently is dodging anything on the stump that can remotely be tied back to his party line voting in Richmond.
Seems like the only thing he is not dodging is finding the easiest place to claim residence in the district he wants to represent but doesn’t live in. It is nice of the WaPo to note the problem their endorsed candidate faces, but this carpetbag issue is not new. In fact, The WashTimes wrote about the residency matter almost two months ago.
Funny how in neither today’s WaPo article nor in their endorsement the WaPo overlooked this killing comment by Marsden to the Washington Times:
As to why he hasn’t already sold his house and moved to the new district, Mr. Marsden pointed to a lack of time and the state of the economy. However, he noted that if he does win, he’ll purchase a home in the Senate district.
“If [he] does win“…can you imagine the gall of saying that for publication?
Hold on…with communication skills like that, suddenly his “scheduling conflict” becomes much more understandable…apparently the conflict is between his abilities and his ambition.
On January 12, 2010, vote Steve Hunt for State Senator in the Va 37 special election
