Today’s the day! I’ve gotten like 5 emails from different congressional candidates asking for money before tonight’s FEC deadline. Here’s what I think-
VA 08 GOP Candidates – Patrick Murray has a lot of catching up to do to match Matthew Berry. We’ll see if he’s come close to the amount of money Berry has raised.
VA 11 GOP Candidates – I keep hearing on various blogs and from supporters that Keith Fimian has more money to run than Pat Herrity. Finally, this statement might be proven soon. It will be interesting to see where Herrity’s money is coming from.
Expect a full analysis when the reports come in.
I’m embarrassed to have this man as my Representative. Please consider donating to either Matthew Berry or Patrick Murray. Even giving only 5 or 10 dollars to a GOP candidate can help.

Statement of RPV Chairman Pat Mullins on the passing of Congressman Stanford E. Parris
RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:
“I was greatly saddened this morning to learn of the passing of Congressman Stan Parris. The Commonwealth of Virginia lost a great public servant, and I have lost a close personal friend,” he said. “From his gallant service in the Korean War to his decades in public life, Congressman Parris will always be known for the way he always put country and Commonwealth ahead of self.”
“I came to know Stan during his first run for the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, and I was immediately struck by his sense of humor and optimism, summed up in his first campaign slogan — ‘Parris in the Springtime,'” he said.
“Whether he was sitting on the Board of Supervisors, working in the committee rooms of the House of Delegates, or arguing his case on the floor of the House of Representatives, Stan was a tireless advocate for Northern Virginia,” he said. “Anyone who uses the HOV lanes on I-395 or enjoys watching a sold-out NFL game at home owes Congressman Parris a debt of gratitude.”
“His dedication to public service was matched only by his tenacity. Most freshman members of Congress would walk from public life away after suffering an electoral setback as serious as the one that befell Congressman Parris in 1974. But Stan came back, fought hard, and retook the 8th District, and held it for the GOP for another decade,” he said. “From that first campaign in Fairfax to the impromptu debate with Jim Moran at city hall, I’m proud of every moment I was able to speak for and be associated with Stan Parris.”
“We are all profoundly grateful for the life Stan lead, and for the time we were able to know him. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife Martha, and his three children, Michael, Ann, and Susan.”
Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Pretty productive day. More pictures found here.
Currently, Democrats are trying to prove that Ken Cuccinelli and VA are wasting taxpayer dollars by suing the Federal Government.
RPV did some research and what do you know…the Democrats are lying. Check this out. Its from one of RPV’s emails to reporters.
• ObamaCare’s cost to Virginia over next 12 years: $1.1 billion
• Cost of Virginia’s lawsuit to stop ObamaCare: $350.
No paid outside counsel, no witnesses, no depositions. Just the filing fee.
ObamaCare: Roughly 3 percent of the state’s annual budget.
Lawsuit to stop ObamaCare: Roughly one 64 GB iPod touch.
Next argument, please.
Hypocrisy at its finest. Speaker Pelosi is the biggest embarrassment to the office of the Speaker ever.
