In 2010, Howie Lind visited the Clarke County GOP and offered a ringing endorsement of Delegate Barbara Comstock:
“Let’s go find and support and run strong conservative candidates for these seats.
“Actually, I’ve been doing that for the last couple of years… A couple of years ago, fall of 2008, I recruited Barbara Comstock to run for the House of Delegates.
“A great candidate and she’s down there now in Richmond, she won, and she’s my delegate there.
“Interestingly, in that year in 2008… Frank [Wolf] was talking to me all year about running for that seat…
“I said Frank I’m sorry I can’t, between work and family and other things, I just couldn’t run, but I got Barbara to run and she’s done great.”
