Fimian Plans Rematch In Northern Virginia

Posted July 20, 2009 at 9:02pm

Republican businessman Keith Fimian is planning a 2010 challenge of Democratic Rep. Gerald E. Connolly, setting up a rematch of their 2008 race in the northern Virginia-based 11th House District.

In a statement the National Republican Congressional Committee circulated to reporters, Fimian said that he is running because Democratic-run Congress “has gone out-of-control on spending” and that Connolly “is incapable of addressing the challenges Northern Virginia families face.”

Fimian in particular criticized the fiscal 2010 budget resolution, the economic stimulus law and a House-passed climate change bill.
