[b]Like the Taliban, NO QUARTER![/b] [url]http://www.nypost.com/news/nationalnews/33339.htm[/url] November 4, 2001 -- President Bush isn't on the ballot Tuesday, but key contests from New York to Virginia could spell political fallout for him. Democrats hope to score bragging rights by winning back the New York mayor's seat, as well as gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey - all now held by Republicans - despite Bush's sky-high popularity. "If they can do that, the message is that Democrats can still set the agenda with issues like jobs, education, health care and local issues because voters are listening to a lot more than terrorism," said Republican pollster John McLaughlin. That could dent Bush's political clout, at least on domestic issues, in the closely split Congress, where last week the president barely won a House vote on airline security. It would also be a shot in the arm for Democrats, whose hopes are fading for next year's congressional elections due to Bush's popularity. But if Republicans win any of Tuesday's three top contests, it will be credited in part to Bush's popularity.

Especially in Noo Joisey. Everybody get out & vote for Schundler. If interest is as low as the press says, one vote means much more than in a popular vote. Love McGreevy's ad. I don't trust YOU enough to carry concealed in NJ, so you should trust ME enough to be governor.

Go Early!!! Mark Warner blows, I have the feeling we are going to have a bunch of libs in Richmond though

It's a done deal dudes! Warner's got it! I'm not saying that he will get my vote, he wont, I'm voting for Early! Warner isn't good for the 2nd, but he will be happy with the status quo. He won't help any. The real enemies are his running mates, Tim Kaine and Donald McKeachin. Tim is about a socialistic as they get. McKeachin is a personal injury lawer, and has never tried a criminal case EVER, yet he wants to be Atty General. McKeachin is still running his "Injured, call me!" ads to this day!

I'll be at the polls bright and early. DriftPunch is exactly right - Warner's not nearly as bad as his cronies. I've sat in several General Assembly meetings with McKeachin. There has never been a finer poster child for HCI/MMM or a better example of a worthless human being! (want me to tell you what I really think?) I fear for what will happen to our fine State if McKeachin & Kaine get elected. Please vote tomorrow. It was great to see Early at the gunshow a few weeks ago. Go figure - Warner never did make it. Hmm..... Black Fox

Hopefully the republican turnout will be enough to offset the unoffical democratic motto of, "vote early and often".

[b]Republican Mark Earley over Democrat Mark Warner[/b] [url]http://www.washtimes.com/op-ed/20011105-420679.htm[/url]
Mr. Baker gave Mr. Earley an "A-" for his voting record and position statements on gun issues. Mr. Warner, who has never held elective office, received a "C" grade for his own positions.
