In Spite of Dick Saslaw - and Uranium? - We Have a Candidate for Hurt's Senate Seat

Comment:  Mr. Davis cares for the people of Pittsylvania County, VA, therefore, will care for the district!  Also, he is the only one that has the guts to say he is against uranium mining and milling because it cannot be down safely and has never been done safely in the world!  Thanks Mr. Davis and good luck!

In spite of Dick Saslaw's demoralizing and defeatist comment about not wanting to "waste our money" competing for Robert Hurt's Senate seat, Democrats now have a candidate.

Henry A. "Hank" Davis Jr., the chairman of the Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors, is expected to announce his candidacy for the 19th District Virginia Senate seat Friday during a series of four stops in the sprawling three-county district.

I don't know anything about Mr. Davis, but NotAndySere has some interesting thoughts about Virginia Uranium's attempts to "[purchase] a State Senate seat," possibly because Davis is apparently an opponent of uranium mining?


P.S. Also interesting -- Dick Saslaw co sponsored a uranium study bill as part of Sen. Frank Wagner's SB 525 to establish a Virginia Uranium Mining Commission.
