About TheBullElephant.com

GrayElephant

Our mission at The Bull Elephant is to provide unique coverage of politics and policy in Virginia and elsewhere, giving particular emphasis to those issues and concerns given short shrift in mainstream media outlets. In our first three years, we think we’ve done a pretty decent job of that. Whether though our coverage of the Virginia elections in 2014, 2015, and 2016, or through our unique and vital perspective in covering the insurgent Dave Brat campaign against Eric Cantor, or through our original reporting on Medicaid expansion in Virginia, successive General Assembly sessions, and innumerable political conventions and other events, we’ve brought a unique and valuable voice to politics in Virginia.  We aim to continue doing so, and along the way, we hope to have fun!

The Bull Elephant editorial team is led by Jeanine Martin and Steve Albertson.  Our permanent contributors include Jamie Radtke, Paul Prados, Mike Giere, Chris Beer, Willie Deutsch, Steve Thomas, Dave Webster, and Mick Staton.  Our guest contributors include members of Congress, heads of non-profit public policy organizations, leaders of political party organizations, former statewide elected officials, and a wide array of informed and uniquely positioned political activists.  We strive to include varied right-leaning, conservative, and libertarian perspectives on  important public issues, so opinions will run the gamut from conventional to “out there,” with the idea that all benefit from listening to opinions that challenge their own perspectives. As with other sites, the opinions of individual authors do not necessarily reflect the opinion of any other author.

Thanks for visiting!
