Charles Hernick for Congress

Red NoVA endorses Charles Hernick for the Republican nomination in the 8th Congressional District.

Hernick, like so many in the 8th, is a Virginian by choice. He is also, like so many in the 8th, a millennial. When I asked him about the National Debt he pointed out that a huge chunk of the debt itself comes from “overwhelming debt service payments,” a point that most electeds stay away from because it really highlights how the government is destroying itself by falling farther into debt and farther behind in catching up on the payments. He went on to say, “There are a large number of millennials in our district and collectively millennials carry one trillion in privately held debt. Combined that with the National Debt and entitlement programs that won’t pay out to them, even though they are paying in.” That’s a great answer that voters in the 8th need to understand.

Hernick has put together a professional campaign. He is a disciplined communicator. He has a real organization set up to push out his message. Unfortunately, those are all stark contrasts from his opponent.

Retired Army veteran Mike Webb, Hernick’s opponent, is a nice man. He is always wearing a smile. But he is not ready. And I mean really not ready to carry the Republican banner. He sends out a lot of press releases. The sender is named “Campaign Email.” D’oh. They are fairly entertaining reads, if he weren’t running in a presidential year (more on that in a minute). In one of the press releases he explains why he was recently fired as a FOIA officer. Why would he want people to know that? In another, Webb mentions that he filed charges with the local police against the Arlington County Republican Committee. He names a few people in the release, and he even tells you where one of his critics works while pointing out that that person was engaging him on Facebook during company time. Then it sounded like he tried to get the young man fired, but when I asked Webb about this he said that he did not call the guy’s employer. And the Webb campaign couldn’t file finance reports on time. The explanation was that the campaign computer was “hacked.” C’mon. This followed with another missed deadline with the FEC resulting in a fine, which is very embarrassing. Also, his press releases often include the curious phrase, “sources close to the campaign.” Keep in mind the press release came from the campaign, so yeah, that’s as close as one could get.

We need to nominate a professional in every congressional race this year. Hillary Clinton will be tough to beat in Virginia and every vote counts. In a presidential race, a vote in a Republican rich district counts the same as a vote in Democrat rich Arlington. We need someone who can attract millennials to come to the polls. Once there, voters will receive a sample ballot that includes the rest of the Republican ticket. A vote for Hernick could turn into a vote for other Republicans across the board. But if we nominate someone who is not ready to be professional in his messaging, then we will lose a lot of potential votes in other races, which could tilt the scales enough for Clinton to win. And with Virginia being such an important state… you get the idea.

If you plan on attending the 8th Congressional District Republican Convention this Saturday then we encourage you to cast a vote for Charles Hernick for congress. He understands the problems that the National Debt has created. Hernick is a professional, he is polished and he is ready to work hard right up to Election Day.

Hernick for congress.

    This is utterly ridiculous. This news organization (Haha! As if!) is really stooping low with this hit piece against me. I have many followers. I have many people that are outside of the Alexandria GOP following me on Facebook! I have gone to war against Chairmen Emerituses (for informational purposes only) Hurrttt and Wavero! I have battled with Mr. Chairman (for reference purposes) Laspasser on a daily basis. I have emailed Chairman Whitbeck, Chairman Priebus, Mr. Blackwell, and many many others thousands of times…yet Mr. Hurrtted calls those emails SPAM. How can emails from me be SPAM??? THey can’t. I am a retired Airborne Ranger. I have led soldiers in training that later went on to war. I have been called upon by the US Army to do many important things that shall be respected, but I guess Isa jus anotha black man to y’alls peoples! I guess I should just keep it on the Down LOW as the nefarious Robert Kenyon has told me to do. Maybe I should go join the Democrats as Hill staffer and Charlse Hernick lacky Charlie Keller and others have told me to do! But no. You need me on that wall. I, the son of an All Star, legendary Preacher that the First Lady called the bread and fish Preacher and life long Republican will not go quietly in to the good night. I will fight. I will run with my followers to the convention and I will beat the environmental consultant of short stature! We will win and we will take the fight to the Volvo man and then across the river. You will regart this day Red Nova! Mark my words…it is better to let them piss from inside the tent out than outside the tent in! Honest.

  • shake my head…

    And this statement above, ladies and gentlemen, is exactly why Mike Webb is not ready to be the Republican nominee in the 8th District.

    Also, the FEC has been aware of the hacking that was carried out by seedy characters against my campaign. While the investigation was ongoing I also had the world renowned Geek Squad take a look. They found over 4800 viruses that are obviously not from any sites that could be misconstrued as adult in viewing pleasure. This was clearly an attack by evil doers that want to silence our campaign. The Geek Squad, even while the FBI and other agencies are carrying out this investigation wiped my (not with a cloth HAHA!) computer clean and started anew…which totally makes sense to do while the key piece of evidence is under investigation. We will not be stopped. We will not succumb to Charles Hernick and his donuts and offers of coffee (or rather attempts to date women with ulterior motives). We will run and we will sweat, but we will win! Honest.

  • Michael The Webb

    You are not ready. We are ready! Vote Webb! He will do what needs to be done!

  • Michael The Webb

    Also, unlike Mr. Trump, Charles Hernick does not have the hand size to lead!

  • shake my head…

    Can you share any substantive policies positions you would advance as a Member of Congress other than a national lottery? You have spent the entire campaign bashing your opponent and everyone else who voices concerns with your actions – but have not yet made any substantive proposals. How would you work with other Members of Congress to build a coalition around those policies to get them enacted into law and not merely send out press releases.

    We will bring in the best people to do the greatest things. WE will fight the worst things as we are running to do. We will bring in people that have liked my Facebook page and the huge amount of people that have followed me on twitter, that aren’t Republicans to make things better. We will fight the RINOs and Liberals as the people that served with me did on the battlefield while I was still at home…but this fight I will fight for them! I will Airborne Ranger to change things and we will win. We will win so much that you will get tired of hearing about all the great things I have done. Chalrse Hernick will not win. He is not a fighter.

  • shake my head…

    So what you are saying is you don’t have any policy proposals that you can run on if you somehow win on Saturday?

  • Michael The Webb

    You mean WHEN Mike Webb wins on Saturday. He will win. He will bring about positive change. So get on the Webb Watercraft and the Trump Train, buckle up, and let’s get to winning and fighting liberals and RINOS!

  • Robert Kenyon

    Appreciate the shout-out, Big Mike. It’s good to know we’re not running low on crazy, so long as you’re around!

  • Michael The Webb

    Are you going to ask for my freedom papers signed by President Abraham Leviticus Lincoln (RIP) again? Are you here to question Mr. Webb’s service to God and Country AGAIN, Mr. Fake Warrior Kenyon? I bet you aren’t even from Kenya!

  • Hi Riser

    Webb says he’s e-mailed individuals thousands of times and he has, with wordy incoherent diatribes against his own party. He alienates people and makes himself unwelcome nearly everywhere he goes with his serial lying, bragging, and delusions of being persecuted, not to mention comparing himself to god. That’s why he can’t hold a job or get any support from his party. If he actually had all the contacts, endorsors, celebrities, and supporters he says he has, he’d be awash in donations instead of getting next to none. And instead of his “dog ate my homework” excuse for failing to report his finances, he’d be bragging about his fund raising.

  • Hi Riser

    After spending your entire campaign deceptively implying that you led Rangers on deployments, it’s about time that you admitted, as you finally did above, that you were actually at home instead. You didn’t complete Ranger School and were never qualified to lead Rangers in deployments. And in 20 years, you’ve never been deployed. All your many months of first person Ranger battle and fighting talk is rubbish. But instead of dishonorably doubling down and calling yourself a Ranger fighter yet again above, you need to apologize to Rangers for your stolen valor.

    First, I am not surprised that after engaging in the identity theft of my personal friend Jane, cloning her identity several times on Facebook and Twitter, after sending emails to delegates using my name, questioning my military service, heritage and work achievements, and engaging in threats of extortion under a pseudonym, the Hernick campaign resorted to inventing Michael The Webb. But now, after the establishment has thrown out the 14th Amendment, while auxiliaries have thrown out the first Amendment, and conservative leaders have walked away from conservative issues just to criticize me, now Richard Viguerie’s Conservstive HQ and RedNOVAVa have embraced a moderate Republican promoting a climate change agenda over a right wing conservative. As Wesley Snipes’ character answered in that film about how he felt: RIGHTeous!

  • Michael D. Webb

    Is this your doing, Robert? Why would I have a “the” in my name?

  • Michael D. Webb

    I forgot about how you struggle with ambiguity.

  • Robert Kenyon

    Mike, you battled reality in the ARLNOW comments section as Michael the Webb for weeks on end. For a change, embrace reality and accept responsibility.

    You’re a hapless nutjob.

  • Michael D. Webb

    No. I posted as Michael D. Webb, my real name. Michael the Webb was a stolen identity, a common practice, apparently for the Hernick campaign.
