TD Endorses Bolling
Saturday, October 29, 2005 :::
Not a surprise, but the Times-Dispatch plumps for Bolling over Byrne:
He is a conciliator. An individual of sound principles and mainstream policies (he supports Virginia's right-to-work law, for instance), he does not practice the politics of slash-and-burn. Rank partisanship is not his forte.
I'm not so sure about that last bit. Bolling is as partisan as the next candidate. But when measured against Byrne (whom one reader characterized to me as "Jim Gilmore in drag"), Bolling is better.
And I still contend the Lt. Gov.'s office should be abolished.
