RPV Chairman Pat Mullins perhaps having finally heard the voices of many Virginia Republicans, sent an invitation to all of the GOP candidates for U.S. Senate on Thursday, asking them to participate in three debates prior to the June primary election.
In that letter he wrote the following; “While all of you are out meeting voters each day, Virginia is a large and diverse state and I believe that it would be beneficial to the voters to have at least three debates with all of the Republican candidates who will be on the Republican ballot for the June 12, 2012 Primary.”
The question is will George Allen accept the invitation? His campaign seems content to try to ride out the primary with contributions and endorsements from the GOP establishment.
Allen needs to come out from behind the contributions and endorsements and convince Conservative Virginians that he deserves their support again.
It is not 2000 anymore Senator Allen. Virginians and the country at large have changed. The stakes are too great to send a part-time conservative to the Senate. Our children and grandchildren are depending on us, and we must not let them down.
