Yeah ... maybe not. Former Fairfax County Chairman Anthony Bedell, who by the way was chairman when Bob McDonnell won Fairfax County, has officially endorsed John Guevara for Sully supervisor. This is a big, big deal in Fairfax. Bedell is synonymous with one thing: winning. For a new candidate like Guevara to earn this support over two established names in Fairfax like Schoeneman and Litzenberger, its a frankly shocking development. This wind his at Guevara's back but does he have enough to catch up to Litzenberger? Who knows, but with endorsements like this he certainly might:
“This was an easy endorsement for me. It is in line with my philosophy, when I was Chairman and now. It was our Fairfax leadership team’s goal to find candidates with deep ties in their community and making sure we as Republicans offered candidates with different backgrounds. The results were clearly as successful as you can be in Fairfax. The voter paradigm in Fairfax has changed even more from when I was Chairman. Republicans more than ever need to nominate candidates who can reach a wide array and diverse group of voters if we have any chance to win. Nominating John Guevara in Sully meets this standard. I think both of the other candidates are good men and good Republicans. But if we want to hold this Supervisor seat we need to nominate John Guevara so we can win Sully District in November.”
I hope David Skiles has his phone turned off today!
