A former Loudoun Supervisor and School Board member is planning to vie for Virginia’s newly drawn 31st Senate District seat that now encompasses parts of Loudoun and Fauquier counties, including the Town of Leesburg.

Geary Higgins currently chairs the 10th District Republican Congressional Committee. He announced his intentions Monday to run on a platform that would end “the liberal blockade” of Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s agenda, protect women’s sports, lower taxes and government spending, and give parents a voice in their children’s education.

Why is the LTM letting Higgins get away with characterizing his anti-gay position with the transparent euphemism "protecting women's sports"? This guy supports taking away women's rights, is a climate change denier, and as for cutting government spending, did everything he could to support a half-billion-dollar highway expansion boondoggle on Route 15 that will not address safety or congestion, but awarded the development industry a long-sought goal to public financing for opening up Loudoun's rural area to new sprawl development. And for that was awarded the endorsement of land-use lawyer former Del. Randy Minchew (and $30K in secret-donor SuperPAC donations).

You know it is a politician talking when they talk about killing babies all the while calling it reproductive health. Affordable housing subsidies for the builder means we pay more than the never do well.
