I await the replacement Republican rubber stamp. But understand that the decision will first have to be approved by Big Oil and Grover Norquist. Valley voters can wait.b

Some in the Augusta Republican circles are hinting that Congressman Goodlatte will not seek reelection next term and that Saxman is being set up for his replacement.

McDonnell, Palin, and now Saxman?
GOP Quitters. Lohr hadn't finished his first (and only)term on the county school board when he decided he was ready for bigger things. They don't want to do the job, they want to climb the ladder. That's all.

Has he been out of the country recently? Say, to South America?
The article says he's been spending campaign contributions at a very high rate, on what? He hasn't done any ads on tv or radio or any such thing.
Things that make you go hmmm.

I absolutely love that Saxman is backing out. He's been such an embarrassment lately, really.

It'd be really nice to get someone in that office that actually gives a hell about workers and families in the region.

I wonder how many other area legislators follow suit? It's hard to tell how many of them were in that hot tub with Chris. None of 'em look all that masculine when you think about it.

I'm not going to even ask if it was with a male or a female. Not my business.

This was all part of the master plan Lowell put together. Things are falling into place, piece by piece.

Where is that video clip from the Courthouse square when Sax brought little Matt to town for some campaigning for McCain...and when a car backfired Saxman is heard calling out, "is that Lowell Fulk?"

The guy is a walking bag of bad nerves.
