Tuesday night, at around 7 p.m., the talking head on the local news stated the Democratic and Republican primary results would be coming in soon. In the 10th Congressional District, Judy Feder was running for the Democratic nomination while Frank Wolf, the incumbent, was running for the Republican nomination. The talking head stated something similar to: “Judy Feder gave Frank Wolf a hard pressed race in 2006”.
What are these guys smoking?
Judy Feder was crushed in 2006. 2006 was one of the worst years for Republicans in decades and Frank Wolf won the race by 16.36% points.
Frank Wolf won every jurisdiction in the district (Clark, Fairfax, Fauquier, Frederick, Loudoun, Prince William, and Warren Counties and the cities of Manassas Park, Manassas, Winchester). At the worst, he won Fairfax County by 6.7%, and at the best he won Frederick County by 37.6%.
Heck, Judy Feder can’t even get money from people in the Commonwealth of Virgnia, much less from people inside the 10th Congressional District (The Washington Post): 72% of her money comes from people outside the state for crying out loud! Meanwhile, 72% of Frank Wolf’s money comes from inside the state, with 70% of the in-state contributors coming from inside the 10th Congressional District!
No bias as channel 9, that’s for sure! (Snort.)
