Jim Gilmore sets Bob Marshall Straight
Spank that Donkey has the money post - Gilmore Responds to Marshall Hit Piece.
The Bob Marshall campaign and its bloggers have tried everything in the book to discredit Jim Gilmore. Most of it was foolish rhetoric like trying to convince people Gilmore was not pro life:
Claim: Jim Gilmore is not pro-life
Truth: Jim Gilmore was Virginia’s most Pro-Life Governor, and is the ONLY Republican candidate in this race that has not voted to send taxpayers’ dollars to fund Planned Parenthood.
Or this nonsense
Claim: Jim Gilmore did not oppose the Regional Transportation Authorities established by HB 3202.
Truth: Jim Gilmore opposed HB3202. In fact, Jim Gilmore vetoed a bill in 2000 that would have established similar Regional Taxing Authorities. A bill Bob Marshall voted for.
Go on over to STD and read the rest of the Marshall rhetoric being destroyed by Gilmore's solid record. The Marshall crew set the tone of this campaign early and it will end this weekend at the convention as Gilmore will win the nomination.
The bloggers for Marshall tried and failed to excite voters. They spread misinformation while Gilmore focused on Mark Warner. They raised a pitiful amount of cash, they ignored my part of the state, and basically accomplished nothing but wasting time and effort on a candidate that has nothing to offer but a history of grandstanding. I credit Jim Gilmore and his supporters for taking the high road during these attacks. There is a reason the press and the pollsters never noticed Marshall....Nothing of substance was his platform and come vote time that will be their return...Nothing of substance.
