Allen for U.S. Senate!
Through his long career serving our great state George has been a strong and faithful fighter for conservative Jeffersonian principles. It is fitting that George had the distinction of holding Thomas Jefferson’s seat in the Virginia General Assembly, and no doubt Mr. Jefferson would approve. As Governor, George put into practice many of the ideas and concepts that he worked on while serving in Mr. Jefferson’s seat. Sworn in as Governor in 1994, George set about to bring sweeping reform that would make Virginia a national model in economic development, public safety, education accountability, welfare reform, and creative government. He challenged critics and sentiment that suggested it couldn’t be done, reining in government spending and substantially reducing the size of the state workforce. And he accomplished his reform agenda with bi-partisan support.
George has also proven that he can win elections in the old Dominion. He was elected Governor with nearly 59 percent of the vote, and in 2000 he defeated long time incumbent Chuck Robb.
