George Allen — that’s Senate candidate George Allen as of Monday — is making the rounds.
Here he is on the Sean Hannity Show where, among other things, he says:
“It has been a good exciting first day… it is an adventure and the response from the people of Virginia have been encouraging to Susan and me. We are looking forward to continuing to listen to the people of Virginia whose voices and views have been ignored in Washington. Folks are frustrated in Virginia and I think as well as across the country. If you look at these 2012 elections I think they are going to be pivotal in determining the trajectory of our country, whether we continue decline or start to ascend again. I have a lot important ideas to reform the federal government, to rein spending and making sure our country is a land of opportunity for all with the right energy and economic policies for everyone to achieve their dreams.”
Once more, we must contrast this with the “old days” when candidates made their announcement tours in person by flying around the state.
