Virginia State Senator John Edwards of Roanoke, unchallenged in the general election since 1999, has come out forcefully against a conservative form of governance, despite mounting concerns about the growth of government, both in Richmond and in Washington, D.C.
Edwards told the Roanoke Times that he feels that moderate governing is best and believes the Senate should remain as it is, in order to prevent conservative approaches of government to take hold.
AFP-Virginia state director Trixie Averill today issued the following statement:
Its telling that John Edwards likes things the way they are in the Senate. As it stands now, he and his liberal allies can thwart attempts to streamline government and save the taxpayers money.
