I guess people can’t say Pat Herrity is the more moderate candidate now. Check out part of their statement:

CAN Chairman Peter Candland said, “Although the Virginia Republican Party has two very well qualified candidates to represent our party in the 11th District in 2010, CAN members believe that Pat Herrity provides the best combination of leadership, experience, and integrity to not only win against the Democratic opponent, but bring a sense of constitutional obligation back to Washington.” Full statement found here.

Congrats to Pat Herrity!
