Letter to the Editor: Thanks for your help, Republicans

I want to take this opportunity to thank the Virginia GOP for making this the easiest decision of my life. In the June 8 primary, GOP voters chose far-right wing extremist Keith Fimian as their candidate to take on U.S. Rep. Gerald Connolly, a moderate who has occasionally bucked his party's wishes and also represents the last chance for Prince William residents to get anything close to relief from our relentless traffic congestion. I believe that some day, Pat Herrity will make an excellent congressman, as he is also very much a moderate, and had he won the primary, I would have given him some serious consideration in this race. But if the Republican party is willing to bypass a candidate that could peel off the crucial independent vote, and instead pick the most extreme right candidate just to get their own voters out, then I enthusiastically support the re-election of Rep. Connolly. I thought Warner over Gilmore was an easy decision.
