    A subsequent visit to Front Royal on Fri Feb 9th at the Front Royal Fire and Rescue meeting hall by Rafael Cruz (nationally recognized speaker and pastor and father of sitting Texas Senator and former Presidential candidate Ted Cruz) and Cynthia Dunbar (candidate for the republican nomination for Bob Goodlatte’ s) congressional seat was ignored by our local press but was a blessing to those that attended. It is time we had more Christians in Congress and Cynthia Dunbar is a great start (principled, supporter of life at conception and a person that believes that the Constitution is as valid today as the day it was penned…she is a lawyer, past post graduate teacher at Regent University and will represent the Commonwealth in an a very effective and productive manner.

      So you say that the media should have gone to an event that had a former communist/Marxist as speaker, that fought for Fidel Castro, and just became a US Citizen when his son was running for office and he need medicare part B. All because he supports the other communist/Marxist Dunbar whom advocates on this same video for the elimination of the agencies, removing the powers from the President; and the elimination of the Courts. Leaving all power in the few “elected”.
      Yeah. Good thing they missed it. No need to promote or advertise the ignorance, communist, Marxists ideas of that woman and that guy. Irregardless of how popular the Castro-fighter is because of his son.

    Thanks for the video. Couldn’t go to this forum.
    That Ed Justo guy seems like a great, level headed, honest person. And he did not use any gimmicks like that angry lady in black hair that said a lot of boring nonsense.
    The Cline guy talked the same as all forums. Just like the Haywood, both, had tons of me, me, me. Not even 1 solution. At least the Justo guy came with a possible solution to everything. That’s what we need. Solutions. Justo got my vote.

    Thank you Mike McCool. I came in late so now I can see the beginning.

    My son, Daniel, was friends with Mike McCool’s son when we lived in Front Royal. They went to church together and played soccer together.

    Mike McCool recognized me after 20 years. My face still looks the same but I have added some pounds since then

    I have been to 2 forums. The candidates are doing a great job answering the questions and presenting their positions on the issues. Tom Sayre, another old friend, did a great job moderating the event. It was great to see old friends that I know from when I lived in Front Royal.
