The Repsonse to Schweitzer

Anita Kumar

As we all now know gubernatorial hopeful Terry McAuliffe was endorsed this morning by Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, who also happens to be chairman of the Democratic Governors Association.

So what's been the response from his rivals?

Democrat Creigh Deeds tweeted about it this morning: "well I guess terry has a leg up in the montana precincts."

Brian Moran's campaign manager Andrew Roos said: "The guy who was rumored to be running for governor of New York, and wanted to be governor of Florida is having the governor of Montana tell us why he should be governor of Virginia?''

And the Republican Governors Association sent out an email with this simple question:

"Who is Brian Schweitzer?"

Terry McAuliffe is clearly the candidate who can best Bob McDonnell in the Fall.He has concrete plans for building Virginia's economy and improving the educational opportunities of the young people who will be the building blocks of that economy. He, without question, has the energy, the presence,and the organizational ability to be a dynamic Governor. He will prevail on Tuesday.

I'm a T-Mac convert and true believer. He has the smarts, energy, experience and drive to make real positive change in VA. I wonder how many of the "Terry-haters" out there have met the man--or read his book? Both were eye-openers for me.

Actually I have read his book.
I particularly liked the part where he was drinking with the Clintons in the White House.
Also, the part where he was drinking and golfing with the Clintons was very good.

The moat (or is it swamp) around the "I'm Virginia and to heck with anyone who hasn't lived here for the past 300 years" is fast draining. We are seeing very accomplished people endorsing Terry McAuliffe both inside and outside Virginia.

The three other candidates have been in the Virginia legislature for years. What did they do, except possibly block many fine initiatives? Yes, the legislature found the means to reduce State support for all levels of education. The State legislature found means to make Virginia's transportation mess worse. The legislature's record of accomplishment is abysmal unless you are a special interest like Dominion Power.

Well wake up Virginia. Terry McAuliffe is in town. He's going to shake up Richmond. He's not going to let the part time legislature say no to bringing good job with good wages and good benefits to Virginia. We're going to grow our way out of this recession with Terry McAuliffe as governor.
