Campaign Promises

I proudly support Jim Gilmore for the Senate! There are many reasons I support Jim Gilmore over Mark Warner. I will be posting often comparing Gilmore's record to Warner. Since both candidates are former governors, looking at their records is a good place to start. Campaign promises mean a lot to me. When Jim Gilmore ran for governor he promised 4000 new teachers, lower college tuition, tax relief...He performed:

As Governor, Gilmore kept his campaign promises in both areas including hiring 4000 new teachers to reduce class sizes, reducing college tuition, implementing stronger educational standards, and for the first time ensuring all lottery profits went to education.
He also signed into law five different tax cuts for Virginians totaling $1.5 billion. Time and again, Gilmore stood his ground against those who wanted to raise revenue by increasing taxes. In doing so he earned the admiration of Virginia citizens and three times was awarded the “Friend of the Taxpayer Award” by Americans for Tax Reform. Looking to the future of the state’s economy, Gilmore created the nation’s first cabinet level Department of Technology launching Virginia into the Technology Age as “the Digital Dominion.”(

A solid record indeed. His opponent Mark Warner also made some promises.

"I will not raise taxes." - Candidate Mark Warner, October 10, 2001.

What I believe the people of Virginia want is they want people who are going to keep their promises.” - Governor Mark Warner, March 25, 2003.

"Warner Opens Session With Call to Raise Taxes" - Frontpage Article Headline, Washington Post, January 15, 2004.

We all know what happened next. The largest tax increase in Virginia history. Looking at the past campaign promises made and the actual record of promises kept, my vote goes to Jim Gilmore. His conservative leadership is needed more than ever in Washington DC. I encourage to check out Gilmore for Senate. They have a first rate media operation already in place so sign up and support Jim Gilmore for Senate. Let Mark Warner know that lying about raising taxes will not be accepted.

As I recall Jim Gilmore was a gun control fan. Quite frankly, he was so anti-second amendment that I decided to not vote for him or any one for Governor that year. I also understand that Gilmore is the reason the republican party adopted the "big tent" agenda that let all the clowns and liberals in. And now he wants my money so a democrat can't get in the senate? What's the difference? Tell Gilmore that either he publicly repents of his past mis-doing, or he can go suck an egg and I'll give my money to a real American. Jim Gilmore? No thanks.

When did you join the NRA? And what about the "big tent republican" thing?

Just what does my NRA membership have to with anything sKerry Nation? Gilmore is and always has been pro gun.

We got us a winner here huh Kilo? I guess the Big Tent thing he is babbling about is the fact that Gov. Gilmore attracted the most Virginian's with African Heritage voters for any state wide Republican Candidate....

The Dems are skeered....
