I'm supporting John Brownlee. John already heads up a Federal equivalent to the AG's Virginia post, as he currently runs the US Attorney's Office for the Western District of Virginia.
He has a sizable staff working under him, and is a senior prosecutor. Should we choose John to run against Shannon (by all counts- a seasoned prosecutor himself) it will ultimately be the equivalent of the democrat protege and the Republican Mentor.
I strongly support Ken Cuccinelli, like I have in every race he has ever run in. If you are conservative and you have heard him speak, I don't have to say any more.
Lester- You are absolutely right. If you are a Conservative, you need not look further than Cucinelli. I've heard him speak, and I fully support him.

Lester and Sandy- I have heard all three of them speak. Brownlee is the most conservative of all of them.

Two main issues is what I base my choice for Brownlee,

1. He is the only prosecutor running on the GOP ticket. For 25 years whenever the AG race was a prosecutor vs. a non-prosecutor, the prosecutor wins.

2. His stance on the Triggerman Rule. Conservatives should be up-in-arms- trying to repeal this loophole.
Sandy / Lester - I'm still in the vetting process, which I need to ratchet-up a notch due to the deluge of phone calls that I get from each campaign. That said, I intend to put very little stock into what any of the candidates "say." I'm tired of listening to politicians. I want to know what have they done. All three candidates have a record to help predict how they will govern.
There is ONLY ONE proven by his votes in the General Assembly conservative in the bunch---Ken Cuccinelli! .
His voting record is about 99 percent --- minus the question on the triggerman rule. I'll ask him about that Thursday evening.
What experience to any of these other guys have regarding crafting and supporting legislation? How about actually running campaigns and getting elected? Ken, you know, has never wavered in his conservative principles, unlike others on statewide tickets. Isn't it ironic that the three most hated "extreme" conservative the RINO establishment is fighting are all from, and have won election, in the more "liberal" districts in Northern Virginia --- yet none of them hides their pro-life, small government convictions: Jeff Frederick, Bob Marshall and Ken Cuccinelli---- are faced off against the "we must change with the times" crowd who seem to lack principle as their governing principle. Yet this same "mainstream" crowd who are losing more and more elections are the very compromisers who have the Party in a death grip.
Let Brownlee prove he is not a stalking horse for the Big Money, power over principle crowd!
Just great Brian- As long as someone/anyone panders to all those that breathe, he is your best choice. I have no interest in your choice. Apparently you are of the Moderate stripe. Have you not yet learned that the Conservative/Republican base doesn't want one size fits all?

I'm supporting Dave Foster. Yes, Cuccinelli is conservative. No one disputes that. But the Attorney General job isn't about ideology. If you want to argue ideology, that's for the gubernatorial race. And, frankly, we need Cuccinelli in the Senate. He's won his seat twice and he's probably the only Republican who can hold the seat in 2011.

Brownlee is a better alternative, but he's never had to win a campaign. He's got ample experience for the job and he's got integrity.

But Dave Foster is, in my opinion, the best choice. The Attorney General is, for all intents and purposes, the managing partner of a huge statewide law firm, employing hundreds of lawyers and even more law enforcement officers. Criminal, civil, constitutional - every aspect of the law is touched upon by the office. Dave Foster is a partner a Fulbright and Jaworski, an international law firm with over one thousand attorneys and offices in sixteen countries. He knows how to manage and he'll be able to keep the AG's office running smoothly.

He's also demonstrated that he can win in Democratic areas, having been elected to the School Board in Arlington twice. Even though the office was non-partisan, he ran as a Republican. He knows how to win in tough areas for Republicans.

Overall, I think he's the strongest candidate to win statewide. He'll appeal to the broadest number of voters on both sides of the aisle, and that's the best way to ensure we win in November.
Well to respond to everyone at once:

I tip my hat to both Ken Cuccinelli and Dave Foster. Ken has been a great leader in the State Senate, and ran and won in Fairfax. Something the whole RPV should be proud of. As well as Dave Foster running as a Republican (when he didn't have to,) in Arlington. Another thing to be proud of.

While, Ken was proving his legislative skills, John Brownlee was proving his skills in the court room. Which is were I want my Attorney General to prove himself. Ken and Dave (more so Ken) has great experience for offices like Governor or Lt. Governor, but not Attorney General.

John is prepared for the office from day one. The number one job of Attorney General is prosecuting. Jim Gilmore, Bob McDonnell, were both prosecutors. The fact that he is a prosecutor, is what will win in November. The Democrats already have there candidate for AG, Steve Shannon. A Prosecutor. If we nominate anyone other than a prosecutor in May, I'm sorry but I think we will lose.

As far as John not running for any other campaign, that might actually help. People might see that this guy is interested in law, not politics. He has held office were it counts, in the U.S. Court System. Also, with Bob McDonnell and Bill Boling having the strongest ticket in years, John can pick up any potential loss from Bob and Bill coattails.

My second choice? Dave Foster. Why? The Triggerman rule.
Travis...It is refreshing to read your endorsement. ALL the right reasons. All the right trains on thought. I agree with everything you just typed. My gosh! Somebody actually "gets" it.
Wish your vision was contagious.
