There are many legitimate reasons why Corey Stewart supporters should flip their support to Nick Freitas and none of them have to do with Stewart being a bad guy.
Freitas Is The Tougher Candidate
Corey Stewart has always been a tough fighter during election years, however, his style of fighting is often predicated upon theatrics, like protesting outside the RNC while the RNC attempted to help Trump win the presidency, calling Republicans “flaccid”, and bringing toilet paper to the State Capital. Worse, Stewart rarely governs the way he campaigns.
His reputation is one of being a strong, tough, populist campaigner in the mold of William Jennings Bryan, and as a weak legislator who constantly caves to special interests and developers in Prince William County. The liberal media promotes his campaign theatrics because they think it hurts Republicans, but no one in the media covers how he governs, because they actually agree with Stewart most of the time.
Stewart uses these theatrical tactics to gain media attention and to hammer home his populist message. Many politicians use tactics like this in order to force the liberal media to cover their less-than-liberal platforms.
However, once Stewart gains the attention that he wants, he never succeeds in doing anything with it. The headlines always become about Stewart’s behavior and never about the causes he’s trying to trumpet.
Meanwhile, Nick Freitas has used 100% of his media moments to bring attention to the logic, philosophies, and ideas behind the causes he represents to the public. Freitas is famous for his floor speeches in the House of Delegates. Why? Because his causes are backed by ideas that resonate with most Americans. He makes sense. When Nick Freitas speaks, people listen.
Yes, we remember that it was Nick Freitas who was speaking, but the media coverage is always about what he was speaking about. Nick Freitas is the only Republican running for Senate with the ability to compete on the battlefield of ideas, facts, and political philosophy.
Believe me, Senator Tim Kaine is going to bring a bunch of rhetorical philosophy with him to the table. To win, we need a candidate that can offer more than personal insults and campaign theatrics. We need a candidate who can compete intellectually. We need a candidate that can not only tell Virginians that Kaine is wrong, but explain why he is wrong, and offer an objective, fact-based alternative to the status quo.
Freitas Already Has Support in the U.S. Senate
Senators Mike Lee and Rand Paul have already endorsed Nick Freitas. No one in the US Senate has endorsed Corey Stewart. Freitas also has support from most of Donald Trump’s campaign brain-trust. Stewart burned those bridges with his theatrics. There is no one who was a bigger Trump Supporter than Corey Stewart, however, as usual, Corey Stewart made Trump’s election all about Corey Stewart. This hurt Trump in Virginia and helped Hillary Clinton secure a crushing victory in the Commonwealth.
We need a candidate that will have conservative allies in the Senate on day one and who can earn the trust of his fellow Senators. There is enough egoism in the US Senate. We don’t need anymore self-promoters. We need work-horses and strategists and folks capable of building and expanding coalitions. The only candidate running for Senate in Virginia that gives us that is Nick Freitas.
Freitas is Better on the Issues Stewart Supporters Care About
In almost every area that Corey Stewart supporters are passionate about, from illegal immigration to preserving the Commonwealth’s history, Nick Freitas has a proven legislative record demonstrating his trustworthiness. Corey Stewart has drawn a lot of attention to a lot of issues, but he has done next to nothing to actually promote or secure legislation on behalf of the issues his supporters care most deeply about.
Freitas also has a more conservative voting record. Corey Stewart has a record of rapid tax increases, while Freitas has a record of consistently voting against increased spending and higher taxes.
Do You Support Corey Stewart, or His Agenda?
If you support Corey Stewart’s agenda, then I know exactly how you are going to vote tomorrow. You’re going to vote for Nick Freitas. If, however, this is all about supporting Corey Stewart the man, his personality, his theatrics, and his populist polemic, then I’m quite certain you’ll vote for Corey Stewart, because that’s the only reason why anyone actually would.
I hope that on June 12th, 100% of Corey Stewart’s supporters would put policy ahead of personality.
If you support Corey Stewart’s agenda, vote Nick Freitas on Tuesday.
Corey Stewart has always placed himself ahead of his own agenda. Don’t let that agenda get lost behind political theatrics and the pursuit of popularity. Instead, see that agenda find legislative success by sending Nick Freitas to Washington D.C. to join a growing conservative, liberty-minded caucus that would then be large enough to stop the sprawl of government and the trampling of our Constitutional Rights!
This was a huge win for Americanism and a larger win for President Trump and a statement of standing with the founding fathers ! Congrats to Corey Alan Stewart who was never a ” never Trumper ” Amen !!
Unfortunately, I have not met Nick and don’t know much about where he stands with the exception of his never Trump comments. While he may now be on the Trump train, his lack of judgement is disconcerting.
I do know E.W. Jackson, though, and I know where he stands on every issue I care about. He will get my vote!
It is long over due………its time to describe kaine…..as a ” former Senator in waiting ” and elect Corey Stewart ~ Amen !!
Again! The Basic Rule is simple. Vote for the candidate(s) that the elites love to hate, smear, and say all manner of evil against. In this case, that might be vote for Corey, but it certainly is not vote for Fritos or anybody with a similar-like sounding name. Why is that? Because nobody is hating, smearing, and saying all manner of evil against anybody with a name like Fritos … or even close to it.
Now, if a SJW type writer talks up certain kinds of candidates, then voting for any such candidates, that also would be a violation of The Basic Rule. Why? Well, that is too much to explain here. But if you just follow The Basic Rule, you can’t go wrong.
I voted (early) for the candidate who made the Dems walk out of the GA by telling the truth to protect our second amendment rights.
Tell me again, how many tax increases did Corey help foist on the citizens of PW?
This is not a clever argument. You are really inadvertently implying that the elite sponsored candidates, both R and D, are mostly like Corey; that is, because in point of fact both parties whenever in power do nothing but raise taxes (what you claiming to be the sin of Corey). It may also be added … and that both parties do nothing but increase the power of what has become a Police State.
Please note that The Basic Rule is not designed to make clever Hegelian Argumentation. It is designed to resist, to undermine and displease the elites who administer the Police State … and seek to make our lives a misery.
No I am flat out saying that Corey governs like a RINO when given the chance. I have no such worries about Nick Freitas.
You may be right. There are really no candidates out there that I can get real interested in. And I believe that we may longer term be doomed unless better educated ‘in how the world really works’ candidates rise up.
Thanks for writing back, and we’ll just have to do the best we can and see how things turn out. But again, I am not optimistic. Both the centrist parties are intellectually and morally bankrupt.
I am a cock-eyed optimist. I think we can get candidates like Dave Brat elected. It just takes ALOT of walking and door knocking. It also takes a candidate who can articulate a conservative message and mean it:-)
Amy, it has to be more outside the box than Freitas, Ben Cline, Brat, etc. And the word ‘conservative’ has been used by the upper level handlers to play the people. ‘Conservative’ may mean one thing to you and the very good people of Virginia, but it is a wolves’s way of saying ‘sheep to the slaughter’ from the viewpoint of those controlling the very upper level of the ruling elite class of folks. This is a trickle down continue to fool the people way.
At the recent Harrisonburg 6th District convention, I sat next to a very nice man who thought he was doing ‘the conservative thing.’ After I had talked to him for awhile, he wasn’t so sure. I am pretty nearly sure of one thing though, and that is that the man re-set his mind set right back to ‘get with the program mode’ in a blink of an eye and cast aside any new doubts creeping in because that is what people to. People tend to revert back to whatever they have been conditioned to accept as being truth, reality or whatever. Sometimes it take the total fall of a civilization or a state before the scales fall away from the eyes.
At any rate, I wish you the best.
No I don’t think it does. Though I didn’t support Trump at first, I will say he has been doing a splendid job. Trump is one of a kind, however, and as I said earlier Corey is no Trump. I understand that many politicians mouth conservative platitudes to get elected and then betray their constituents (coughBarbaraComstockcough) but that is not an indictment of conservatism so much as it is an indictment of lying politicians and inattentive voters who don’t bother to check and see if the people they are electing walk the walk in addition to talking the talk
I will take a Freitas and a Brat over him every day of the week (I do not put Cline in the same category though I think he is earnest). Brat lives his conservative beliefs and Freitas does too. I have no concerns that either will betray us in Washington. I have huge concerns that Corey would and those concerns are based on how he voted when he held political office.
You may, but politics does not occur in a vacuum and you’re not casting constant votes on Truth, Justice, and the American way.
I fear you are missing a basic tenet of Republicanism, that we are not sending a yo-yo to stand up sit down after polling the room. We are electing someone to go do a very unpleasant job and to
Lose the hyphen.
Lose the hyphen please
He’s a Chairman of a Board, how does he govern like a RINO?
‘When given a chance?’ WhT does this mean?
I’m voting for the nominee who has the best shot at winning in November. In this case, it’s Corey Stewart. Nothing else matters.
I don’t think he would. Regardless, we do not need any more weak-spined RINOS in Washington.
I agree with Jeanine. Not only does Stewart have the least chance in November, he’d drag down the remainder of the ticket and generally discredit Republicans.
As a former Corey Stewart supporter, I agree with everything said in this article. They told us all of his stunts in the Gillespie Governor campaign was due to the fact that he was broke and needed the Press. When I saw him continuing the same theatrics, whether toilet paper at the state capitol or the silly press conference at the national Republican Senate headquarters claiming conspiracy theories, I was done. The guy’s an aspiring actor.
You know, the name seems familiar. Perhaps you or a related party had a pecuniary interest?
When exactly were you a supporter of Corey?
Enough of us know the truth as well as the narrative. First hand, from the parties and the players involved.
I was a supporter of the President and Corey then, I’m a supporter of the President and Corey now.
It’s a loyalty thing, you wouldn’t understand.
…..its time to describe kaine…..as a ” former Senator in waiting ” and elect Corey Stewart ~ Amen !!
Just as an interesting comparison on voters in northern Virginia knowing the candidates….for …… 4 times now elected…Corey is pretty well known…..over a 1/2 million citizens….that isn’t just a county….its nearly a state….the state of Vermont only has 625,000 citizens…Corey Stewarts region and recognition is almost as big as VT……………Amazingly big county !!
As I was in the New River Valley yesterday and the day before attending a USSSA Youth Baseball Tournament the political talked was for Stewart.
End Illegal Immigration
and what the hell about legalization of pot.
I have to say the genuine feeling was;
Really ?? …..Could be a tea leaf…..??
Nick Freitas for Lt. Governor……in a few years.
I’d vote for Corey because if Nick wins, his GA seat will be the next one to turn blue. If Corey wins it’s no big deal if he loses to Kaine.
I think that his GA seat may be in jeopardy anyway.
A man who holds a job but just punches the clock and listens for the work whistle will soon be outperformed, with ease.
……in fact….I think a pair of seagulls….I heard on the inside suggesting….in fact….he will get a serious conservative challenge next time around……and the libs will be there too.
Your logic is impeccable, thank you.
You would prefer to lose Congressional seats? Corey will drive out the biggest Blue Wave ever seen in Virginia.
I think the times have changed and the notion of coattails is antiquated and hearken back to the days when the party was large and in charge.
Corey will bring a bunch of new voters, a bunch of Trump voters, and the rest of the silent majority to the polls — it is up to our stable to close the sale.
And really, is a Senator Stewart that much more unexpected than a President Trump?
A Blue wave?
More like a pink RPV.
The Republican Senate Primary is the only ticket today there in my District.
I cast this morning.
I asked of the expected turnout.
The response was 7%.
If Virginia goes Blue it is the fault of Virginia Republicans ***only***
for such low numbers.
Stewart for Senate
Take Back Virginia!
…..interesting perspective….If he doesn’t get this tomorrow….I pray he stays in the (HOD) for about 2 more terms. It will make him even a better statesman.
A better statesman than the local county commissioner? Nick has him beat on that front hands down.
Sure, if he’s challenged by him, but more time in office will better prepare Nick for another statewide run.
Exactly what I have been saying for months. A bit to soon out of the oven.
Culpeper won’t turn blue but the Blue Wave will come out so strongly against Corey Stewart that we will lose 4 or 5 Republican Congressional seats.
Democrats are coming out anyway. They’re pissed the President is putting Americans first and they wish to express their fury over that. Whomever is on the VA GOP Senate ticket isn’t going to change their turnout; it will be high, even if the GOP fielded no one for Senate.
“They’re pissed the President is putting Americans first and they wish to express their fury over that.”
Righto! Thanks for that, Harold. Astute of you. Clearly, this is what motivates more than anything.
Here’s a better choice: They all hate Jeff Sessions, POTUS included.
Dems will turnout because they hate Jeff Sessions?
For many Dems, yes, Jeff Sessions threatens their liberties. Reps, too. More than 20% of the population enjoys freedoms Sessions opposes.
Obama increased employer audits.
McAuliffe increased employer audits.
Trump increased employer audits.
It appears the only liberties
being infringed upon are the liberties that illegal employers are taking with
The freedoms afforded states by the US Constitution. Presumably you are supportive.
You said: “More than 20% of the population enjoys freedoms Sessions opposes” to which freedoms are you referring?
Their states exercise rights Sessions would deny them, using Federal law that ignores those states’ rights. Trump agrees: Let states decide. Bi-partisan legislation. Nonetheless, Sessions sees matters differently. State rights are important issues.
Forgive me for being obtuse but you seem to be referring to specific rights by specific states — which are the freedoms opposed by Sessions?
And why so coy?
You said: “More than 20% of the population enjoys freedoms Sessions opposes” to which freedoms are you referring?
That’s my question for you? Why play games about it? You know and I know, and you acknowledge that through your wordplay. You’re the game player, and you’re playing games with liberty and states rights. Cannabis is the issue, freedom and commerce are the questions and it is ridiculous to play games about jobs and liberties, though you are happy to do so. Freitas properly made this an issue in the campaign. Tobacco states will benefit from reform and respect for states’ rights under the US Constitution.
Oh, so it’s the Libertarian Pot thing. Oh, and Nick is the Libertarian, I get it now.
You are aware there is a Libertarian party right? They love that stuff over there — here, in the GOP, not so much.
Marginalize state rights and liberty as you will. If freedom and state rights weren’t Republican issues, I’d thank you for the direction. You’re always showing someone the door, Rocinante — guess that goes with defending the Republican old guard the way you do, where minimizing the number of people involved is one of the prime tactics for maintaining control.
You’re wrong about the GOP, but then we knew that. In the hands of you and yours, it’s been swirling the drain for years. Fortunately, there’s a new guard thinking about freedom and liberty.
Yes, the freedom and liberty best experienced through mood enhancement and alteration.
The candidate for the fifth congressional district is fine, but you apparently differ. As a stickler for supporting all the party’s candidates in lock step you’ll need to pare your rhetoric.
Virginia has a long history of supporting commerce in mood enhancement, alteration, even addiction and drunkenness.
Go Libertarian Go!
Little Rocinante, in a snit, the epitome of a snowflake. You and yours are taking the party down. Step aside for fresh faces and ideas, something other than monuments, symbols and walls, please.
It’s my party and you can cry if you want to.
I seem to remember similar doom and gloom coming from here about the President.
Have you heard Stewart’s campaign ad today against Nick? My bullshit alarm rang off the table!!
Yes, yes I did. Thank goodness Corey called him out on it. If you need a new BS detector, I can’t help.
I didn’t see it.
Supporting Corey Stewart here.
That’s sad. Corey will lose in a spectacular fashion. The party won’t support him, no big money will come in and Kaine will win easily with 65% to 68% of the vote. Virginia will be the laughing stock of the nation. Corey will cost us 4 to 5 Congressional seats but we should keep the 6th and the 9th. It will be a disaster of epic proportions. I am serious, I dread the next 5 months if Corey is our nominee.
Only the universally hated Corey “Mr. Conservative” Stewart can be the guy who can pull together all the factions and candidates for a unified party and win in November.
Only Corey can bring Babs and Shak together for his common cause and common sense campaign.
Only Corey can end the constant bickering of the SCC and bring the out of control RPV back down to earth.
Only Corey, will finish the fight!
Hahaha, the only people he will unify will the Democrats. We’ll drown in the Blue Wave.
You don’t unify by being untruthful and nasty about people in your own party. Gillespie and his acolytes never did get that message when Corey was the target and you don’t seem to grasp it either.
Untruthful and nasty has blowback. Politics is full of bitter nomination fights — it makes for a better stronger candidate.
……its the era of Trump….Corey has been with Trump from the beginning……
Corey is no Trump.
But Corey supported the nominee but Niick did not.
Get over it Roc… lots of people didn’t support Trump and for good reason. Most of them now do because he has governed far more honestly than he campaigned.
Not a good reason for Republicans. The party is a two-way Street. He’s fulfilling the campaign promises that others only pay lip service.
A candidate that won’t support the nominee, is not good enough to be a candidate. We’ll see how Nick behaves this time.
and for quite awhile…niick supported….cantor and cobb….
When did anyone every see Corey act in anything but his own well being? Corey is ALL about COREY! He has shown in Prince William County that he has no scruples and promises are only campaign talking points! Ask Prince William citizens. They’re sick of higher taxes, weakening immigration laws and especially his late night hanky-panky to get the huge Muslims’ ADAMS center approved.
We must know different Coreys then. Corey always supports the nominee and party, even when they stab him in the back.
Corey stands up for the cause and his people. Corey always takes the fight to the enemy and supports those that do the same.
He is a Republican elected official who well represents his County and his constituents.
The mosque issue is an example of political reality where PWC simply could not treat one church more favorable than another.
Or would you rather have given the Mosque millions of dollars after a lawsuit?
Corey is against the grain of government hacks ~ anyone who has the courage and respect to stand with history and Trump and remain unafraid of the consequence, gets my vote !!!
But will you support him if he is the nominee?
Of course she will. I’ve never known Jeanine not to fully support the nominee.
That’s either laughable or you were in hibernation. (I know you are above being disingenuous or purposefully obtuse) during the last POTUS election.
I’ve also never known Jeanine to support other than the Republican nominee for public office in a contested election.
I’ll go w hibernation then bc Ms Jeanine certainly did not “fully support” the current Republican President during the last election cycle.
By her lack of reply, one may guess that the same will be applied to Mr Stewart as well
I think it is safe to say that she will support Senator Stewart just as much if not moreso than she supports President Trump!
Which during the last election was……..”tepid”, “lukewarm”, “begrudging”, whichever word one may care to choose. I’m not implying that she was right or wrong in her opinion of the candidate, but the discussion should be historically accurate.
In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.
….the numbers look to favor CAS ~ Corey Alan Stewart ~ but its never finished…until the final numbers roll in……
Tomorrow I will vote for Mary Jones and Corey Stewart…
There is a story that ran today in the Washington Post about
“A Ticking Time Bomb”
Sorry I am unable to place the link on this site.
The #Never Trumpers should stay under there rock
Corey Stewart for Senate
Take Back Virginia
that is your right.
crazy RINO.. name sure fits
I remember a post that someone made one night when he was upset about the race between Kenny and Scott. Money, money 🙂
Voting for Stewart….frietas is just a better looking version of failed Gillespie
After #Never Trumper Freitas looses tomorrow he should tuck his tail just as he has done in our Va General Assembly when it comes to illegal immigration and move to South Carolina and run against Republican Senator Lyndsay Grahamnesty.
Illegal immigration exist in Virginia because of the illegal employment. Freitas could have exercised States Rights and combated in in our General Assembly but he chose to kick off a campaign there instead.
Haha, Freitas is NOTHING like Gillespie.
I know Ed Gillespie and Nick Freitas is nothing like Ed Gillespie!
Completely different….known Ed longer…back to the Bob for jobs campaign….Ed is more of establishment conservative inside player, total $Cash raiser via lobbying….but certainly a republican…but progressive. Nick clearly has made it fairly obvious…he is more about libertarian conservatism, with a tad of republican rolled in and perhaps …..a bit fond of some social program/issues…that are not so purest republican ?? Perhaps ?? Very different also in thought process ” generation wise “
Leave it to the astute Steven Brodie Tucker to lay it all out PERFECTLY. Nick is the only candidate who stands a chance of defeating Kaine. Unless we elect Nick Freitas, Tim Kaine will certainly be our [liberal] senator for six more years.
What a great article, issues are what matters and Nick has them!
Only Nick can win people over on the sidelines as he doesn’t simply rely on canned talking points but has a unique and compelling way of presenting our conservative values!
Voting Nick Freitas! Thanks for a great article!
I wonder at this point what a democrap would have to do to lose Virginia. You aren’t beating Kaine with Corey Freitas or Ronald Reagan.
Maybe you can run against Kaine’s ties to that amazingly filthy Clinton money political machine… oh except that Hillary won the stupid state last election as did her scumbag carpet bagger MacCullife in the governor’s race with Kaine another Clinton machine boy before him…
So don’t get your hopes up on anyone, they are going to lose in the general election.
I suspect the reason for boosting Freitas is to lose with some dignity.
Why bother? In politics, there is no dignity in losing. When a party runs to lose, it’s time to fundamentally transform it.
…..I believe Corey Stewart will win….should this occur tomorrow…..Nick should turn at once and endorse Corey Stewart. Which will reveal a more seasoned statesman like appeal for Nick.
Just as Corey has done and would do.
Well, look at it like this. When Freitas loses, how will he react, and when Stewart loses, how will he react? And which would you rather deal with as the party leadership?
Frankly, I don’t give a darn about how party leadership will cope with candidate butthurt.
I will beyond miffed with any of the candidates that do not line up behind the nominee. Especially and moreso than I am with Shak.
I don’t cotton to party candidates putting their fee fees ahead of party.
Being a good loser is the character building that some of these people need to repeat more than others.
I dunno. Only a lesser segment of the VA GOP seems to be tired of winning.
Tomorrow will tell.
The only way we for-sure lose in the General is by not running (ask our RPV and SCC about not challenging 27 seats last time.)
Yeah, the democrat party are scum who love power and hate the Republic, and yeah, they have some significant political advantages currently.
But they don’t have a counter to Corey. He, like Trump, drives them absolutely nuts.
We’ve already tried holding up a blazing Ed Gillespie to no avail — so I say ‘Open up a can of Corey on them and let’s see what happens.’
…..Corey is so opposite kaine and the establishment….and pro Trump, that should he do real well in northern Virginia, then he could actually defeat kane !
I don’t mind this article that much as the desperate appeal for Nick illustrates the typical contempt for the Trump/Corey voter.
‘We philosopher-kings know what is best for ‘liberty’ and you don’t, so vote for our guy.’
If Nick or EW wins, I will support them with a greater fervor than I do Corey. If Corey wins, I will kick it up a notch.
You _know_ how SBT and his ilk will write, act, and behave.
I’m not tired of winning, are you? Vote for your choice of nominee as YOU see fit. I trust YOU, I trust the voters of the district and Commonwealth.
Just so you know, I hate Plato’s concept of philosopher kings.
Me too, but that’s what you get when you come down against populists.
A guy who votes for Trump because he likes the cut of his jib is just as valid as we elite who are worldly-wise in the ways of politics.
The people are sovereign.
There once was a Republican tyrant who said: “This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.”
In fact, I seriously dislike Plato.
Plato wasn’t as great as you are. Plato wishes he could be Steven Brodie Tucker, philosopher king.
I keep trying to tell people that.
He had his moments.
How can Nick Freitas have a proven legislative record when he has only been in office for 15 minutes? Remember the General Assembly only meets 2 1/2 months a year. Don’t you have to be in office longer than 15 minutes to have a legislative record?
Look at his votes and the bills he carried. They speak for themselves.
I’d rather look at his votes of the bills that he passed or he rejected, they are the ones that actually talk.
But never a peep on de facto government(s) operating outside the organic constitution. Yes, lot’s of inside the box big talk, but never any real push back against the uni-government Police State.
If you think that Nick Freitas has a short Legislative history, that might be true based on your perspective, but it is 3 times longer than each of his competitors! Because Nick has been elected to the Virginia General Assembly for three session, therefore he is the only candidate on the ballot with a voting record on statewide issues. Neither of the other two candidates have that statewide voting record on many different issues.
Nick would probably be elected if the 17th amendment were to be repealed.
Without Corey Stewart on the Senate ticket, Northern Virginia will be a slaughter against the other 2. This Senate seat cannot be won, unless you carry Northern Virginia. It is how it is, unfortunately, but it is reality.
Living in NoVa won’t get Stewart a single vote. It’s principle that counts, not domicile.
…no…it is about name recognition….with all due respect….that is why he almost picked off Ed…..” we will see shortly, …..first we need a ” clear candidate “
Nick’s campaign has been poorly managed. Great candidate, lousy campaign. Could win anyway.
…..I agree…..in fact….entirely…. Amen ; ))
That’s kinda the purpose of our elections, to put together candidate and campaign in a short time, and mesh it with the pre-existing condition we call VA-GOP.
I disagree. I see and hear signs of him EVERYWHERE around Goochland and Henrico. Crickets from the Stewart campaign.
Signs were initiated and paid for from Grassroots volunteers outside the campaign.
Freitas has a daughter named Alexandria. That’s enough recognition for this NoVa Native. Go Nick!
It truly is awesome how much all of our candidates love the Commonwealth.
Theatrical tactics is how you win. That’s why Nick Freitas will be crushed by Tim Kaine. In today’s media-driven society, theatrics is why Corey Stewart wins in Northern Virginia and why he can beat Tim Kaine. The fact that you don’t get that is what is wrong with the useless loser establishment.
No. Theatrics is how Corey helps Corey. But he always loses. Losing isn’t the same as winning. It’s the opposite.
‘Always loses’ does not explain him being Chairman of the PWC Board and being elected in that demographic county-wide. Convention against EW for LG. Almost winning David vs. Goliath effort primary for Gov. I believe Nick won HOD unopposed once, opposed once.
He wins in northern Virginia, lets get him in a serious challenge against kaine, break this liberal/dem Virginia blue streak, take back our ” founding father state ” Amen ~
He won a local County Board election. That in no way indicates that he “wins Northern Virginia”.
He wins PWC, that’s at least one more than the others.
for …… 4 times elected…Corey is pretty known…..over a 1/2 million citizens….that isn’t just a county….its nearly a state….the state of Vermont only has 625,000 citizens…Corey Stewarts region and recognition is almost as big as VT……………Amazingly big county !!
Prince William is not a state… It is not even most of Northern Virginia
Lost to EW… I don’t even think he finished 2nd, think Pete did
Nothing was going to stop EW that year.
Theatrics is how a Republican wins elections. That’s why you establishment weenies LOSE and LOSE and LOSE. You are still running campaigns for the 1950’s. This is not 1952 any more.
Democrats don’t need to do anything because the liberal news media will puff them up.
But Republicans overcome the lying news media by Corey Stewart’s tactics.
Mr. Rogers’ tactics — I mean Ed Gillespie — is how you LOSE elections.
We live in an age of mass media.
Old school 1950s Republicans hate that because it just “isn’t done” at the country club. Seeking publicity is crass and cheap to those who stand around preening their own self-importance and superiority.
But in the real world, Corey Stewart’s tactics are the ONLY way to win.
Nick Freitas’ style is a throwback to the 1950s.
I have nothing against Nicky. I have everything against the REPEATED stupidity of Republicans who NEVER LEARN from experience.
I will cheerfully support Nick Freitas in 2020 to run against Mark Warner if he spends the next 2 years barnstorming the HUGE State of Virginia, getting known in every nook and cranny
But it is the learning-disabled Republican officials, members, and activists who are destroying the GOP.
Come out of your Cold War bunker and the 1950s and catch up with the 21st century.
Trump left the bunker and dominated with less money than his opponent. His data gathering was phenomenal. We’re getting there….
Again, my outrage is not aimed at Nick Freitas.
My outrage is aimed at the learning-disabled activists, consultants, commentators, voters, officials who NEVER LEARN and keep making the same stupid mistakes over and over and over.
The GOP is the only place where demonstrated failure is a necessary requirement for getting hired for the next campaign.
If Corey wins, prepare for endless video clips of white supremacists and nazis marching through Charlottesville with torches. That’s why [Democrat] out-of-state money is coming in to Corey’s campaign. Kaine can hardly wait to oppose Stewart.
I believe it will be exposed for what it actually is…..untruth.
…..conservative political media is what I do….they can lie as they often do….but it will be seen for what it truly is….desperate. Which ever candidate wins…they are going to trumpet that tone.
…Nick should wait about….4 years in the (HOD) then consider Lt. Governor, where it will matter less about being a libertarian (if this is now how he describes himself) and might matter less about info out and about, of being a Cantor/Cobb supporter before switching to Brat, or even once being openly against Trump. ….so, Should he wait 4 years, all of this will less matter, in a run for Lt. Governor. And, I don’t believe he can defeat ” money bags Warner ” or ” dug in like a tick ” Hanger. so, summary ~ Should he Not win tomorrow, stay in (HOD) get more stuff done ! Retain the seat for 2 terms beyond current, then make serious effort for Lt. Governor, with lots of political office behind him, and much of the other stuff mentioned above, in the rear view mirror. Amen ~
