It seems Delegate Scott Lingamfelter has decided to make a run for Lieutenant Governor. Here is what he wrote after the news leaked.

It’s Time…

I woke up at 6:30AM yesterday, went down stairs, poured a cup of coffee and saw that the Washington Post had announced to the world that I was running for Lieutenant Governor. To be sure, we’ve been talking about it to a number of folks so it’s really not much of a surprise that this wound up in the press. But honestly, in a year when the focus is on national politics, we didn’t expect the media to take such an interest in this race this week. Our preference was to let our friends and supporters know first. So here are some of my thoughts (anti-climactic) on this “news”.

When I was in the Army, I learned a lesson that I have never forgotten. If you do well in what’s in front of you, the next takes care of itself. It was an important lesson, because it taught me to slow down, focus on my work, learn, experience, and apply what you learned as you go forward. I think it helped me as a career Army officer, and I know it’s been helpful as I have done my work in the Legislature since 2002.

I frequently tell young folks-including my own kids-that if your ambition is what is driving you, watch out, you may be missing an opportunity to demonstrate your potential by failing to focus on the job at hand.

That said, by now, many of you know that I will be a candidate for the Republican nomination to Lieutenant Governor in 2013. It’s time. I have served in the legislature for 10 years. I have learned a lot. And I think I’m ready for this next step. I’ll have a lot to say about all of this in the next week or so, but for now, I want to share this thought with you.

Never in my life have I seen the nation in a worst posture than it is today. We face crippling debt, our constitutional freedoms are under attack, the public policy is out of step with the traditions of faith, family, and freedom, our leaders don’t listen to us, and people now wonder out loud whether America’s greatness will ever return.

I think it can. But it won’t unless we roll up our sleeves and get to work. For me-the Lieutenant Governor race notwithstanding-Job #1 is to get conservatives elected to the Presidency and Congress. To that end, I plan to do all in my power to rally conservatives to that cause, particularly veterans, a group I am honored to stand with shoulder-to-shoulder.

I hope you’ll do the same in your community. We’ll been through a tough several months of nominating contests, and now is the time to rally to our team. We cannot and we must not permit the current Administration to rule over us like peasants. We are capable of running our own lives, making our own decisions, and yes, succeeding and failing on our own. We want a government that respects our rights and our freedoms and we don’t have that now. But we can if we work harder than ever before.

I hope you will join me in that effort. There is no place in this fight for sunshine patriots. Only warriors. Let’s get the job done, beginning right now. It’s time…

Of course there will be a more formal announcement.
