Impressive. That was my first thought reflecting on Thursday’s fundraiser with Governor Jeb Bush to help Republican state senate candidates retain their majority in Virginia’s General Assembly. In an election year when all 40 seats are up for reelection, Republicans hold a slim 21-19 lead. Demonstrating the team effort that has been stressed as absolutely necessity, Governor Bush emphasized, “We have to be a team of conservatives that reach out to everybody to win.”

It wasn’t his first time helping Virginia Republicans. Earlier this year he donated $10,000 to the cash-strapped Republican Party of Virginia.

Jeb Bush to fundraise for Virginia state senate candidates at ‘Java with Jeb’ event

Demonstrating the team spirit that will be necessary for Republican wins in 2015 and 2016, former Florida Jeb Bush is heading to southwest Virginia to fund raise for the Virginia Senate Republican Caucus and their candidates who include Nancy Dye who is running against  incumbent Democratic candidate John Edwards and independent candidate Don Caldwell.

Billed as Java with Jeb, an opportunity for coffee and conversation with the presidential candidate, the event will be held on Thursday, September 24, at the Birthplace of Country Music museum in Bristol at 11:45 a.m. Dye will attend, and others expected to be there include Senators Bill Carrico, Ben Chafin, Ralph Smith, and Ryan McDougle.

Republicans currently hold a 21-19 majority in the Virginia State Senate, a lead they are trying to retain in the upcoming November elections. Jeb’s appearance will help pull in funds for campaigns and increase his profile in our battleground state.

One would think with the power of the woman’s vote in Virginia, one time Stafford Supervisor Susan Stimpson who’s attempting to unseat Delegate Bill Howell in the June 9th primary, would have at least left a calling card at the Virginia Federation of Republican Women’s Convention over the weekend.

Sadly for the tea party loyalist, there was no card and no message of sponsorship, unlike her opponent.  Stimpson was just a no-show.  But that did not stop several hundred Republican women from gathering at the Hilton in Short Pump, Va., to foster common goals of advancing conservative principles and candidates.

Still it’s amazing to this independent observer that Stimpson would “snub” such a powerful group of women.  Now I’ll give it to Stimpson that she found it more critical to actually be out campaigning.  But what ever happened to courtesy?  Yeah, there’s that tea party attitude I’ve come to know.
