GOP Prepares to Invade NoVa

The GOP wants a piece of the Old Dominion. Which is why Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Senate hopeful Ed Gillespie rallied the troops Oct. 9 for an impending “deployment.”  

According to a tipster, over 100 volunteers showed up for the “March to Victory” recruiting event held at the Capitol Hill Club.

Those in attendance were asked to bolster pre-election efforts by pledging to fan out across the state each Saturday — from dawn till dusk , no less (though meals are provided) — beginning Oct. 18.  

The planned grassroots assault is designed to infuse the historically purple commonwealth with a bit more red.  

Former congressional aide and state Del. Barbara Comstock is hoping to replace her former boss, retiring Rep. Frank R. Wolf, R-Va.,  in the House (a possible succession the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee might be coming to terms with ) while ex-RNC Chairman Gillespie continues duking it out with centrist leader Sen. Mark Warner.  

May the best ground-gamers win.
