There’s no accounting for taste, or lack thereof…
ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) – Rep. Jim Moran, D-8th, beat back an aggressive primary challenge Tuesday to win nomination to an eighth term, overcoming criticism that his comments opposing the Iraq war were tinged with anti-Semitism.
With 99 percent of the votes counted, Moran had 23,814 votes, or 59 percent, compared to 16,829 votes, or 41 percent, for Andrew Rosenberg.
Moran did not mention Rosenberg during a brief victory speech to about 200 supporters but said, “It’s obviously disturbing to me that as many as 40 percent of alleged Democrats may have voted against me.”What’s disturbing is that 59% of the alleged Democrats have such low standards that they could vote for a scumbag like Moran.
I will be extending the same offer of support to the Republican challenger Lisa Marie Cheney (I know what you’re thinking, but there’s no relation) this fall. There is one more chance to rid Congress of Jim Moran, vote Lisa Marie Cheney November 7.
Congratulation to Andy and his dedicated staff for a fine showing and softening up Moran.
