Editor: In the 10th District race for Congress, the Loudoun Chamber of Commerce debate made the choice very clear.
On the one hand, you have a leader – Congresswoman Barbara Comstock – who has results and impressive legislative accomplishments that have put money in our pockets and grown our national and local economy, strengthened our military, and made our communities safer with her Project Safe Neighborhoods legislation and leadership battling the opioid crisis. Barbara has worked with Democrats and Republicans alike to get results that matter for our district. She’s Chairwoman of the Research and Technology Subcommittee and is plugged into our business, defense and technology communities.
And on the other hand, you have a follower of the “Resistance” – who has few substantive legislative accomplishments to tout after 4 years in the state senate. She seemed ill at ease with the business community and given her ratings on the bottom half on most business scorecards it’s no surprise that she doesn’t have a single accomplishment when it comes to jobs and the economy. Her website doesn’t even mention rebuilding our military and strengthening our national security.
With 4.2 growth and a booming economy, we don’t need to turn back to Wexton’s high tax, high regulation policies that were holding back our economy and we certainly don’t need her opposing Barbara Comstock’s bipartisan legislation to rid our streets of MS-13 gangs.
Let’s stick with positive results and on Nov. 6, “resist” the mindless resistance crowd, and vote for Barbara Comstock.
