This morning, we will be asking for a recount in the Attorney General’s race. While we certainly would have preferred for the result to be settled on November 5, over the last few weeks we have seen a fluctuating margin that currently sits at 165 votes separating us out of more than 2.2 million votes cast. It’s the closest race in Virginia history, and as we have seen in other races around the country with margins this slim, this result could easily change when...Continued »

At 9:37 a.m., twelve years ago today, American Airlines Flight 77 hit the Pentagon. New York’s Twin Towers crumbled, as public safety personnel and citizens risked all to find survivors. A fourth plane was brought down in a field in Pennsylvania. Many lost their lives.

Nobody ever said winning this race would be easy, especially when we are running a campaign based on real policy and a positive plan for the Attorney General’s office against an opponent whose focus has been on dishonest and misleading attacks.

On Thursday and Friday of last week, I had the pleasure to join many friends in the public safety community at the annual Virginia Association of Commonwealth's Attorneys meeting in Virginia Beach.

As you can read from the Washington Post report,...Continued »
