    Based on my conversations with others, I believe George is right. It appears that Mike’s percentage is a record for a general assembly seat in Virginia.

    Also, I noticed that Mike’s percentage was higher than some major party candidates in two way races. So, it seems that this is a noteworthy accomplishment. Good job Mike!

    Of course, as Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Northern Virginia during Mike’s campaign, I take all the credit for his performance 😉

    Hi Matt, I think I worded my comment poorly. The Ballot Access News website said that it was a record percentage for an LP candidate for the House of Delegates in Virginia. I recall that you ran for a House seat in the past so I know you are knowledgeable about this. Do you think it was a record percentage in Virginia?

    Mike did great, but what numbers are you using to say that this is a record vote total? THIS IS A SERIOUS QUESTION

    Congratulations to Mike Kane for a record vote total for a Libertarian Party candidate for House of Delegates!

    Thanks Bruce for posting this Mike did a great job, with very little money. Glenn McGuire also did well in Virginia getting 22.66% of the vote.

    Today I got a visit from the Sheriff. He said that my Ron Paul signs must come down. He showed me a city ordinance that he claimed as his authority.

    I gave him a copy of the Constitution and I told him that is where his marching orders should come from.

    So what shall we do about this? Mind you the signs are on private property. Is this a violation of private property rights?

    Do you want to know what to do about this and how to fight back?

    We have 720 members now. If each of you would agree to deliver 100 Ron Paul cards to your neighbors that would be 72,000 homes with Ron Paul information and it would only take you one hour to do it.

    Of course that would be a great number to distribute each week.

    Who will help? Email me for instructions.

    Mike, San Diego County
