Colonel Mulrine has worked hard establishing his run for Senate but the Governor has decided he wants Dr. Jill McCabe to run instead of the well known and well liked Colonel Mulrine. Colonel Mulrine had been recruited by and supported by the Loudoun County Democrat Committee. But the Governor ended that.
A Facebook comment of well-known Loudoun Democrat John Flannery:
It’s understandable that John Flannery would assume that Dr. McCabe is a Republican. In 2012, she voted in the Republican presidential primary, which means she either supported Ron Paul or Mitt Romney for President. Or perhaps she just really doesn’t like Obama. Despite being rather wealthy, McCabe has never given a dime to any Democratic candidate or the Democratic party.
Dr. McCabe is a pediatrician which might imply that she is pro-life. She is certainly not pro-public schools. Both of her children attend Loudoun Country Day School. ‘Country Day School’ is always code for ‘rich, elitist, school, that you probably can’t afford.’ Loudoun Country Day School is no exception, with tuition at $24,985. Let’s just round that up to a cool $25,000 a year. Virginia Universities don’t charge that much! Her children are now in high school…that’s a lot of money to spend on tuition for 12 years for two children. And yet not a dime for any Democratic candidate.
In her bio Dr.McCabe says she attended a school very much like Loudoun Country Day School:
Jill chooses to volunteer her time on the Board largely because of the great impact that attending a school very similar to LCDS (Loudoun Country Day School) had on her personal academic career. As a Pediatrician and mother, she values the importance of childhood growth and development, and is happy to be a part of a school that fosters them.
From that we can only assume that the wealthy Dr. McCabe does not think that public schools foster childhood growth and development. Interesting.
I know that Governor really wants this woman to be the Democratic candidate for Senate in the 13th Democrat but why? She appears to be a rather elitist Republican.
