WHO WOULD DO THE BEST JOB FOR US IN THE US SENATE?

 

Nick Freitas, Member of the Virginia House of Delegates
from the 30th district (from here)

Nick Freitas is one of three candidates running for the Republican nomination to the US Senate on June 12, 2018. I am torn between him and E. W. Jackson. I supported Jackson when he ran Lieutenant Governor of Virginia in the 2013 election. Jackson is a thoughtful man and an inspiring speaker, and I think he would do a far better job in the US Senate than the guy we want to replace. If Jackson wins the nomination, I will enthusiastically support him in the general election.

So why Freitas? Freitas has a track record in public office, and Jackson does not. When I have an equally good alternative, I vote for the guy with a track record. We can see how Freitas has performed under pressure in the Virginia General Assembly when his vote counted. We can only speculate what Jackson will do under the similar circumstances.

Ballotpedia has a good article on Freitas. That includes a link to a list of State legislative scorecards in Virginia.

How do Freitas’ votes stack up? Here are some of his rankings.

Obviously, Freitas votes conservatively.

What about Corey Stewart? Stewart might do a better job than the incumbent, but that is only because the incumbent is so awful. Because they don’t particularly trust him, Prince William County Republicans don’t get excited when Stewart runs for higher office. Here is an example, Prince William Republicans pick Freitas over Stewart in straw poll (insidenova.coml).

Stewart makes a point of being a hard nosed, tough politician (see Corey Stewart: The Roy Moore Of Virginia (dailycaller.com)), but to be fair to Judge Roy Moore, Moore was not trying to vicious or ruthless. Moore was not trying to out-Trump the worse aspects of Donald Trump. Moore just firmly stood up for his principles whereas Stewart lacks the grace we hope to see in our leaders.

Here is example of Freitas in action. Medicaid expansion passed in Virginia, but Freitas clearly explains why that will not be a good thing for Virginia.

We need to give this man a bigger platform from which he can serve us. We need more leaders willing to speak up for limited government.
