Goodlatte sets it straight

Bob Goodlatte goes to National Review's Corner to tell his opinion on the immigration bill.
The Gang of Eight bill is fundamentally flawed and unworkable, because it repeats the mistakes made in past immigration overhauls. Among my many concerns, the Senate bill gives legal status before enforcement is up and operating, provides a special pathway to citizenship for those who have broken our immigration laws, and allows the president to waive many, if not most, of the bill’s internal enforcement requirements.

Drifting closer

Bearing Drift takes a shot at polling the 2013 elections - with a twist.
The split here diverges from other polls, which have assumed the 2013 electorate will look far more like it did in the 2012 presidential year than has historically been the case for Virginia’s off-year elections. Recall that in 2009, that electorate was +4 Republican over Democrat.
Hard to see McAuliffe riding a wave of Obama enthusiasm.
Cuccinelli may find slow and steady beats flashy.

It has the names of three people running for statewide office.
What's missing?
Their political party.
They must not be proud to be Democrats in Augusta County.
