James Young

Very nice story, and wholly representative of everything I knew about the man. My encounters were similar: drinking in Tucker's room at a couple of conventions and conversations as though we'd known each other for years. One of those good people in politics for all the right reasons. He will be missed.


I knew Tucker via the Virginia Jaycees before he dove massively into politics...but he was the same way all the time, regardless of the arena. He prized involvement over everything-and just had the attitude that everyone should be involved, and he would find one more vote when it counted than the other guy had. Then, when the smoke cleared, he would hand you a beer and explain just how he ended up with one vote more!
