When I e-mailed Cooch's office for an explanation, the reply I got from an aide was that he favors Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), not liking fixed-rail systems. It may only be AG this time, but AG is usually a stepping stone to Governor. (Ask Jim Gilmore and Bob McDonnell.) Cuccinelli in the Governor's Mansion would be a crippling blow to Hampton Roads' mass transit future! We need to launch a preemptive strike in May, stopping Cuccinelli now.
In Virginia Beach, the deadline to file as a delegate is Noon on March 2. In other Virginia localities, check with your local Republican unit committee. I plan to go to Richmond as a Brownlee delegate.
