Editor: The strange case of Chis Harmison just got stranger this week when Loudoun Now ran a letter to the editor from Bob Gordon supporting Harmison as the Democrat candidate for sheriff.
That’s Bob Gordon the well-known Republican, and Chris Harmison, a life-long Republican until the day he announced a run as a Democrat against his former boss, Sheriff Mike Chapman.
Harmison’s motivation all along has been revenge. He failed to get reappointed to his job in the Sheriff’s Office and now works as an entry-level court bailiff in Fairfax County. Gordon’s motivation may be no better. His wife is serving as Harmison’s campaign manager and she also used to work for Chapman.
Justin Hannah has no such conflicts or motivations. Simply put, he’s the only Democrat running for sheriff. While Harmison has Republican Bob Gordon funding him, Hannah is backed by Democrat State Delegate John Bell, Blue Ridge District Democrat candidate Tia Walbridge, and many others.
Democrats have an easy choice in the primary election on June 11. Vote Justin Hannah!
