John Foust doesn’t know when he’s hit bottom. He seems to think that he can always go lower. Take last night for instance: given an opportunity to back away from his sexist attack about Barbara Comstock never having a “real job”, Foust instead doubles down, dismissing Comstock’s resume and record as something that “won’t contribute” to anything in Washington.
Nevermind Comstock’s record of legislative success in Richmond. Or her bi-partisan work to stop sex trafficking and increase tech investments in Northern Virginia.
Nope, Comstock won’t contribute. Because John Foust thinks working for the DoJ (which his wife does on the side, by the way) isn’t a “real job.” Or political work (which his entire campaign staff does, by the way) isn’t a “real job.” Or being a mother (which John Foust isn’t, by the way) isn’t a “real job.” Or anything that Barbara Comstock has done it’s a “real job.”
Yet he’s the guy who will tell you he’ll be able to work across the aisle in Washington. He’s sure shown his bi-partisan stripes in this campaign with disgusting partisan attacks that do nothing to elevate the level of debate on the issues that matter most. Nope, he’s going to run a scorched earth campaign on divisive social issues and attacking women for not having “real jobs” if they aren’t the jobs he thinks are truly “real”.
November 4th can’t come fast enough.
