Former Rep. Tom Per­ri­ello (D-VA), “will lead a new polit­ic­al ac­tion com­mit­tee aimed at end­ing the GOP’s long­time ma­jor­ity in the com­mon­wealth’s House of Del­eg­ates. … The or­gan­iz­a­tion will not only raise money, he said, but also will help can­did­ates find ways to use tech­no­logy to cam­paign more ef­fect­ively.”

“The Win Vir­gin­ia group has already raised $260,000 from four wealthy donors, three of them long­time Demo­crat­ic sup­port­ers from Fair­fax County: .. fin­an­ci­er Ed­ward Hart Rice, … tech ex­ec­ut­ive Shashi­k­ant Gupta … and gov­ern­ment con­tract­ing ex­ec­ut­ive Dario O. Mar­quez Jr. … The fourth, San Fran­cisco ven­ture cap­it­al­ist and Linked­In co-founder Re­id Hoff­man, gave $50,000.” (Wash­ing­ton Post)

TREBLE WITH THE BASS. Prince Wil­li­am County Su­per­visors Chair Corey Stew­art (R) said Wed­nes­day that former RNC Chair Ed Gillespie (R) have not spoken to each oth­er since the primary elec­tion and will have base turnout is­sues if he doesn’t speak to his voters.

Stew­art: “I’m go­ing to be vot­ing for Ed Gillespie and I hope that all of my sup­port­ers vote for Ed Gillespie. But, you know, this is not old-style polit­ics. There’s 155,000 people who voted for me and they voted for me be­cause of … my strong po­s­i­tions on … his­tor­ic­al monu­ments, crack­ing down on il­leg­al im­mig­ra­tion. … And, you know, they’re go­ing to vote for Ed Gillespie if Ed Gillespie has strong po­s­i­tions like I did on those is­sues. They’re not just people who are just go­ing to blindly fol­low whatever I say.” (John Fre­d­er­icks Show)

Stew­art “had loads of free ad­vice for the nom­in­ee, who he called ‘bor­ing’ and lack­ing in pas­sion. … Stew­art says Gillespie should ditch the ‘dorky Mis­ter Ro­gers’ sweat­er that is a staple of his cam­paign ads.”

Stew­art: “Ed, if you’re listen­ing to this: Nobody cares that your dad owned a gro­cery store. Nobody cares that your an­cest­ors were im­mig­rants. Nobody cares about that be­cause every­body in that room has a sim­il­ar story. I haven’t met any per­son who has been in­spired by Ed’s story of grow­ing up in a gro­cery store.” (Wash­ing­ton Post)

"Two weeks before his inauguration, Donald J. Trump was shown highly classified intelligence indicating that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia had personally ordered complex cyberattacks to sway the 2016 American election. The evidence included texts and emails from Russian military officers and information gleaned from a top-secret source close to Mr. Putin, who had described to the C.I.A. how the Kremlin decided to execute its campaign of hacking and disinformation. Mr. Trump sounded grudgingly convinced, according to several people who attended the intelligence briefing. But ever since, Mr. Trump has tried to cloud the very clear findings that he received on Jan. 6, 2017, which his own intelligence leaders have unanimously endorsed."
