Meanwhile, Pete Snyder (by phone) and Rob Bell (or, to be precise, his campaign – by email) have informed me they, too, don’t want a transportation plan that is also a tax increase.
So, for those keeping track, opponents of the McDonnell plan as-is (today, January 21, still an overall tax increase) are…
- For Attorney General: both Republican candidates (Obenshain and Bell)
- For Lieutenant Governor: Stimpson, Snyder, Jackson, and (according to Stimpson, via phone) Stewart,

- For Governor: None
We are still awaiting comments from the de facto Republican nominee for Governor – Ken Cuccinelli.
However, I, for one, will not wait silently much longer…
