Cosgrove Wins 14th Senate District Primary

Delegate John Cosgrove won a resounding victory in last night's "Firehouse" primary for the GOP nomination in the 14th State Senate District to replace retiring Senator Harry Blevins.   Cosgrove took 66% of the vote in a three way race.  Cosgrove had to weather false and misleading attacks from an astro-turf"gun rights group that prides itself on such tactics.  This from the conservative blog BearingDrift:
Cosgrove almost tripled the vote of Chris Stearns in a firehouse primary, a method of nomination thought to be friendly to Tea Party candidates. The losing campaign was astroturf-a-plenty, as the Paul-backed Stearns moved into the district prior to filing, and blanketed the district with attack mail. Out-of-towners showed up to knock on doors.

Out-of-staters Ron Paul and Sen. Rand Paul endorsed Stearns, and the fledgling “National Association for Gun Rights,” until now only known for launching false attacks on Congressmen like House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Scott Rigell, launched another untrue one against Del. John Cosgrove through direct mail.

Ron and Rand Paul and this phony gun group share an egg-faced breakfast this morning.
Congratulations to Delegate Cosgrove.  He is a true friend to Virginia's gun owners.  Thanks to all VSSA members who live in the 14th District that answered the call to vote last night.
