Virginia's 9th Remains Purple

It's hard to reconcile that voters who would choose President Bush could also pull the lever for ultra-liberal Congressman Rick Boucher. Nonetheless, these conservative Bible-belters have re-elected a man who voted SEVEN times for partial birth abortion.

Tonight, we were at the local Holiday Inn tonight when Republican challenger, Kevin Triplett, conceded the election with great dignity. As he conceded the election, Kevin reminded us that we were not to concede the fight. The stakes are too high. We can no longer allow our congressman to get a free pass to vote however he chooses in Washington while deceiving his constituents. We will be watching, and commenting, and writing letters to editors...for two more years...when, hopefully, we can replace the incumbent.
