It's looking like my buddy Ginger Mumpower will make a run for the General Assembly seat vacated by the reprehensible Morgan Griffith, the 8th District. She'd run as a Democrat against Greg Habeeb, a far right Republican (is there any other kind these days?) whose abortion absolutism could cost him even in nutcase Salem.
Ginger is a pretty, cultured woman with a tough-as-nails country background who, I suspect, has the brass and intelligence to go toe-to-toe with any Repub and especially one whose views are as far out of the mainstream as the one she'll be facing. Ginger is a successful business owner: she was the Roanoke Regional Chamber of Commerce's Small Business Person of the Year at one point.
I look forward to this race. Ginger's a dandy who's accustomed to succeeding. She's going up against a lawyer whose arguments are based in law and not truth--and there's a huge difference.
