State Senator Roscoe Reynolds (D-20th District) showcased his arrogance and inability to handle a direct question in responding to a caller on a local TV show.
See it here, courtesy of Virginia Virtucon. However, I have the text of Reynolds' mini-meltdown courtesy of Leslie Carbone.
The caller was asking about a Texas firm that does work for the Reynolds campaign, and if they are being paid to spread dirt about Reynolds' challenger, Republican Jeff Evans...
Reynolds: "I have not paid a Texas firm to spread dirt about Mr. Evans"
Caller: "So what are they doing for you?"
Reynolds: "That's none of your business"
Caller: "Sure it is; I'm one of your constituents"
How did Reynolds handle that statement? As Carbone puts it, Reynolds "actually rolled his eyes, sneered, and tossed his torso back in the chair he undoubtedly imagined a throne."
I intended to endorse Jeff Evans previously, but never got around to announcing that endorsement. However, now is as good a time as ever to announce The Podium's endorsement of Jeff Evans for State Senate in the 20th District.
