If only Barbara Comstock would support more tax increases and amnesty for illegal immigrants like the Republican candidate in the 8th district, Micah Edmond, the Washington Post might have been able to endorse her.[read_more] (Even with those things the Post didn’t endorse Micah Edmond.) Comstock’s refusal to support more unfair tax increases for Northern Virginia makes her untenable for the editorial board at the Washington Post. But the Post editorial board can’t bring themselves to endorse democrat John Foust either,
Mr. Foust has been a solid supervisor — he knows the county budget, and he played a constructive role in promoting Metro’s Silver Line extension — but shows no spark as a campaigner and no deviation from party talking points.
(he is) well-versed and effective in addressing the problems of federal workers.
Yawn. Damning with faint praise. The 11th district would be far better served by Suzanne Scholte.
