The Ranger is coming….in Virginia.

Well I don’t know how I missed this….well I know how. I verified candidacies often with my friend Ron Gunzburger’s site, Politics1.com  Only Ron didn’t have John Brownlee (R) listed but one of my faithful readers did. So I did some research and let me say to Democrats and Republicans alike….beware the Ranger is coming.

John Brownlee, a former U.S. Attorney and Army Ranger will be challenging State Senator Ken Cuccinelli (R) for the right to run for Virginia Attorney General. As is the case, sometimes you are never sure of the potential of untested electorally speaking candidates, but Brownlee has a pedigree that every political consultant dreams of.

(From his campaign bio)

As a young military officer, John volunteered for the Infantry and successfully graduated from the Army’s rigorous Airborne and Ranger programs. In 2001, President Bush appointed John as United States Attorney. As the top federal law enforcement official, John successfully prosecuted some of our nation’s most corrupt corporations and dangerous criminals. As one of Virginia’s leading crime fighters, John has earned the reputation as a tough prosecutor who knows how to keep our communities safe from violent criminals and drug dealers. John’s mother served as a public school teacher for over 40 years – the last 17 in Fairfax County, Virginia. John’s father was a decorated Army officer and Vietnam veteran who was awarded the Purple Heart for wounds received in combat and earned two Silver Stars for valor. John’s father retired in 2004 as the acting Secretary of the Army.
