We must inspire all Virginians

I was troubled to listen to Republican candidate for Lt. Governor Susan Stimpson talk about how she would inspire African-American voters.

Q: Let’s say you’re campaigning in some of the urban areas, how would you be able to inspire blacks to vote for Susan Stimpson, what would be your message?

STIMPSON: Well that wouldn’t be a set constituency that I would try to inspire.

We need leaders who will inspire all Virginians, no matter who they are or where they live. That’s the campaign I am running and that’s how I would lead as Lieutenant Governor. It’s unfortunate to see anyone seeking public office in the Commonwealth believe otherwise.
