Senate candidate or no Senate candidate, Chris Saxman still voted for a tax hike

By the time my next post is slapped up (or indeed, by the time you read this), Delegate Chris Saxman may already be a candidate for the U.S. Senate (Bacon’s Rebellion and Too Conservative), and I’m sure he’ll get plenty of buzz and plenty of support – including support from the blogosphere.

I, however, am compelled to remind everyone that Chris Saxman voted for HB3202, the transportation tax hike of 2007. As such, he both unreliable on limited government issues and all-but-certain to get crushed in the general election. I don’t care if he’s a “new face” – northern Virginia and Hampton Roads voters will vote against him just on HB3202 alone.

The alternative to Jim Gilmore is not Chris Saxman; it’s Bob Marshall.

    Even Brandon Bell (a Saxman supporter) thinks that Saxman is getting name ID to run for Governor in 2009 where he could do even more damage.

    You’re right on the money, don’t forget that Saxman is selling himself as a “social conservative” despite his lousy record on family issues.
