Republican delegate joins Senate race to challenge Tim Kaine

Virginia Del. Nick Freitas has announced his plan to seek the Republican nomination to challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine in 2018.

Freitas will go up against Corey Stewart -- the chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors -- for the nomination. Stewart, who has modeled himself after President Donald Trump, ran a primary campaign for governor this year, but narrowly lost the Republican nomination to Ed Gillespie.

Freitas formally announced his candidacy Friday at a gathering of Virginia Republicans. The second-term delegate from Culpeper has a conservative voting record and libertarian streak.

The 38-year-old joined the Army after high school, became a Green Beret and served 11 years of active duty.

Several other Republicans are expected to join the race, including evangelical pastor E. W. Jackson.

Tim the Tollman Kaine needs to be shown the door.  He is singularly responsible for tolling the Dulles Toll Road and drained NOVA commuter’s pockets of untold millions.

And he was a complete buffoon at the VP debate.  He was an embarrassment to the state of Virginia and was second fiddle to the greatest political collapse in US history.


We can only hope the GOP packs every single clown into the car for their one trip about the center ring…


New kid on the block wants to go after a former Mayor, Lt. Gov, Governor, DNC chair,
council member, Senator, oh I forgot the losing VP choice. Lofty ideals and fancy speeches against a hardened politician leaves me wondering if Freitas did not suffer head trauma.
