Blue Virginia touted some endorsements for Rep. Rick Boucher.
How about an endorsement for his challenger from the Bluefield Daily Telegraph?
There is no questioning Boucher’s record. He has been a loyal and steadfast supporter of Southwest Virginia. Through his successful Showcasing Southwest Virginia program, he has created many jobs for the 9th District. Boucher also has helped fund roads, broadband, water and sewer projects for our region, and a large-scale flood-proofing project in Grundy over the past decade.
However, he seems to be out of touch with his constituents on the much demonized —and rightfully so — cap-and-trade legislation. Boucher supported — and continues to defend — this legislation, which could be particularly harmful to the region’s coalfields.
In the coalfields, vote for the coal supporter - Morgan Griffith.
