I have made known my share of criticism of Pete Snyder’s campaign, but I have also highlighted the praiseworthy attributes and even gone as far as to say that if he does not secure the LG nomination later this month that he would make an excellent candidate for U.S. Senate against Mark Warner next year. … More The Anti-Pete Snyder Videos — Inaccurate and Illegal
I find this humorous, your mileage may vary.
Primarily people from outside of Virginia and some in Fairfax, Arlington, and Alexandria.

In the first quarter of this year, Pete Snyder spent $506,499. That’s a heck of a lot of pork for the Pig Rig! Perhaps Pete’s Rock star tour t-shirts were much more costly than they appear to be!

Pretty clever (and humorous, too.)

Yesterday’s April Fool’s post about me running for the U.S. Senate was apparently taken seriously by many more people than I expected. I have had to spend more time tamping down interest from Republican activists and consultants (seriously!) than I ever thought I would. I just got off the phone with a friend who called… More Pete Snyder for U.S. Senate?
Like most people, I have more than one email account. One such email account I check infrequently. On that account I receive emails from Lt Governor candidate Pete Snyder.

Governor?

Got a mailer from a candidate today titled “This one is Different”, should be titled “This one is incompetent”. The letter was addressed to “Scott & Charles”.
