So Tom Thumb "decided" not to run. People like him--frauds--are what is wrong with politics today. It is nice to see that Tommy's statement above pretty much admits, without apology, that he is a tax-and-spender.
And wasn't his father a physician? Typical liberal big-government statement: "Virginia, the state that gave my father a chance to move into the middle class." As though it is the government that allows such things.
The only good thing about this guy is that, basically, he is a loser, unelectable to any higher office. I recall when he was running for congress the first time and he was waltzing around Scottsville. He came up to me and shook my hand...let's just say I could tell what he had had for lunch by looking at the front of his white shirt. A real pro, this guy.

Anti-Second Amendment Democrat Arrested With Gun at Chicago’s O’Hare
Donne Trotter’s mugshot. Photo: Chicago Police.The arrest yesterday of Illinois Democrat Donne Trotter by TSA agents for attempting to bring a .25-caliber Beretta pistol on an airplane at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport demonstrates the hypocrisy of the anti-Second Amendment crowd.
Trotter is charged with one count of attempting to board an airplane with a weapon, a Class 4 felony.
Donne Trotter is a long-time gun-grabber. He opposed concealed carry legislation in the state and worked to outlaw so-called assault weapons. During an unsuccessful Democratic primary bid in 2000 against U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush, he criticized his opponent for missing a special legislative session attacking the right of Illinois citizens to own firearms.
In 1995, Trotter went up against fellow state senator Kirk Dillard after the Republican proposed a concealed carry law. Trotter argued that passing the law would turn citizens into vigilantes.
