This position addresses the topic Virginia United States Senate election, 2006.

For this position

Quotes-start.png "An intensely negative campaign on behalf of the challenger has partially obscured the chasm between Mr. Webb's current views and those of conservative Virginia. It can't be hidden, however. The James Webb of 2006 is too liberal for the Commonwealth. For Virginians who favor low taxes, strong defense, limited government and traditional values, George Allen is the clear choice for U.S. Senate." Quotes-end.png
From Allen for Senate, by The Washington Times editorial board (The Washington Times, October 19, 2006) (view)

Against this position

Quotes-start.png "Mr. Allen lacks any comparable independent-mindedness. He has spent his time in the Senate in lock step with the Bush administration, embracing tax cuts that have imperiled the nation's fiscal health; subsidies for oil and gas companies that hardly needed the help; prisoner detention policies that have undercut America's image abroad; and restrictions on embryonic stem cell research despite its medical potential."
