    Race for Virginia’s 10th: Debate set, endorsements touted

    State Del. Barbara Comstock, the Republican candidate in November's 10th Congressional District race, was endorsed in Loudoun County this morning by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

    The press conference highlighting the endorsement was held at Dupont Fabros data center in “Data Center Alley” in eastern Loudoun County.

    The support from the U.S. Chamber, which leans Republican, comes one week after Comstock was endorsed by former U.S. Sen. John Warner, a Republican who is supporting Democrat Mark Warner in this year's Senate race.

    Comstock, who's challenging Democrat John Foust to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf in Virginia's 10th, also recently nabbed the support of the Virginia Association of Realtors and National Association of Realtors.

    Foust, meanwhile, was endorsed earlier this month by the International Association of Fire Fighters. The Democrat also has the support of the American Federation of Government Employees and the left-leaning Human Rights Campaign.

    Both Foust and Comstock have signed on for a 10th Congressional District debate hosted by the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce Sept. 24.

    It’s all about the money stupid. Who is better with it the spenders Mark Warner and Foust or Ed Gillespie and Comstock?


    Does Mark Warner have the courage to show up for another debate? Probably not cause his record will be shown for what it is. Mark is part of the gridlock in D.C. and needs to dumped with haste. Marks policy is the same as Obama’s and we can see how wonderful that hope and change, shovel ready and yes we can hyperbole is worth!


    If you think Mark Warner is going to lose, then you probably think that voter fraud is the #1 problem in America.


    Foust does not stand a chance with the new editor of this news site.  The editorial endorsing his opponent has undoubtedly already been written, along with the two or three snarky articles to go along with it, all intended to look so new and fresh.


    So the senate seat has moved from a safe seat to a likely. Does Mark warner feel the noose getting tighter? The only thing I agree with Mark about is he asked Flannery not to help in his re-election bid!


    The 10th has been gerrymandered to be 60% Republican. John Foust is just wasting his time, just like all the other Democrats who’ve tried to run in the past. Somebody tell Foust to give up and move east where his liberal brethren are in abundance.


    Troy..remember Joe May?


    Comstock not moderate enuf 4 indies - not conservative enuf 4 teas. Ignores both?


    Unfortunately it is another race where you have to decide if you are willing to support the radical Christian social agenda, or vote Democrat. 

    Maybe some day we’ll get a simple fiscal conservative who is willing to stay out of the bedroom and OB/GYN offices.


    In other news I hear Ed Gillespie offered to send a limousine to pick Mark Warner up and chauffer Mark to any debate but the reply was negative!
