Speak Out: Did Comstock Get It Right at the Convention?
Virginia politician (and McLean resident) Barbara Comstock held the national spotlight at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday afternoon.
McLean resident and Virginia General Assembly Del. Barbara Comstock, who represents the state's 34th District, addressed delegates at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday afternoon, throwing her support behind Romney and slamming Obama's fiscal policies, the Virginian-Pilot reports.
"Comstock ticked off a list of complaints including his proposal to raise taxes on certain wage earners, Obama's pro-labor views, and his 'war on success' that undermines individual achievement.
She also placed the prospect of $1 trillion in looming federal cuts known as sequestration, including $500 billion from defense, at Obama's feet, saying 'his budget failure threatens to slash 200,000 national security and high-tech jobs in Virginia.'"
News 13, a local television station in Florida, printed the full text of Comstock's speech online.
