Democrats Blast Gilmore for Ties to Romney

Anita Kumar

Virginia Democrats attacked former governor and U.S. Senate candidate James S. Gilmore III (R) for appearing in Virginia today with former presidential hopeful Mitt Romney who Gilmore criticized just last year.

The Democratic Party of Virginia noted that Gilmore, who briefly ran for president himself, criticized the then presidential frontrunners, including Romney, who he called a "liberal politician [from] the Northeast" who used his wealth to convert into a conservative.

Gilmore spokeswoman Ana Gamonal dismissed the Democrats' charges, saying that Gilmore and Romney differed on some issues but agreed on the majority of them. She said Gilmore is "excited and grateful" for Romney's endorsement.

"This shows the Republican party coming together with its leaders to defeat Barack Obama and Mark Warner in the fall,'' she said.

Does our Dear Leader not have an official painter? His portrait shall hang in every school in every office in every home and every store. We shall begin our meals with Thanks Be to Barack and he will lead us into a land of organic unpasteurized milk and honey, except for the babies and the lactose intolerant of course.
