AP reports Corey Stewart to run for governor

Corey Stewart, fresh off his loss at the Republican Party of Virginia’s weekend convention in Harrisonburg, will run for governor, according to the Associated Press.

In the battle, Stewart was bumped from the list, something he did not take lightly.

I received mine last Friday.

Opportunities exist for McAuliffe’s struggling Hispanic Board

Daniel Cortez 2By Daniel P. Cortez

As the congressional clock ticks with continued inaction, Virginia and the nation seek resolutions regarding immigration reform.  Fleeing illegal Hispanic children housed in Augusta County and Prince William County, Virginia, demand compassionate but firm action as more may arrive.

This was a key topic of discussion for the Governor’s Virginia Latino Advisory Board meeting last week in Northern Virginia. The subject was as unresolvable as the group’s desire to find relevancy.
