The GOP “minority outreach” bandwagon continues its futile journey to 2014. Former Miss America Erika Harold, an Illinois Republican running in the primary against Rep. Rodney Davis in the state’s 13th congressional district, was called a “street walker” and minority-quota hire by Montgomery County GOP chairman (and Davis supporter) Jim Allen in an email to the conservative Republican News Watch. Allen also mocked her experiences as a bullied child, sneering, “Boohoo, kids are cruel, life sucks and you move on.”

Ms. Harold, an African-American and Harvard-educated attorney, was enthusiastically profiled as a possible leader on “brand repair” by Republican News Watch‘s editor-in-chief Doug Ibendahl last week, prompting Allen to go on his juvenile, misogynistic, racist email rant — which was reprinted in its entirety by an outraged Ibendahl:

Rodney Davis will win and the love child of the D.N.C. will be back in Shitcago by May of 2014 working for some law firm that needs to meet their quota for minority hires.

The truth is Nancy Pelosi and the DEMOCRAT party want this seat. So they called RINO Timmy Johnson to be their pack mule and get little queen to run.

Ann Callis gets a free ride through a primary and Rodney Davis has a battle.

The little queen touts her abstinence and she won the crown because she got bullied in school,,,boohoo..kids are cruel, life sucks and you move on..Now, miss queen is being used like a street walker and her pimps are the DEMOCRAT PARTY and RINO REPUBLICANS…These pimps want something they can’t get,,, the seat held by a conservative REPUBLICAN  Rodney Davis and Nancy Pelosi can’t stand it..

Little Queenie and Nancy Pelosi have so much in common but the one thing that stands out the most.. both are FORMER QUEENS, their crowns are tarnished and time has run out on the both of them..

“Outrageous comments like those of Jim Allen are why we as Republicans fail to gain any respect from minority voters,” said Ibendahl. ”If officials in my party (the Republican Party) fail to understand how destructive it is to attack an impressive person like Erika Harold merely because she dares to challenge the good-old-boys, the GOP will remain a losing party for decades. This stay-in-the-back-of-the-bus mentality destroys any hope the Republican Party has for regaining momentum in future elections.”

Sticking close to the media's preferred script, Axios this week reported that the walls were caving in on Democrat Terry McAuliffe, who's caught in a surprisingly close race in Virginia's governor's race. "It was clear the McAuliffe campaign has taken on an air of tension — bordering on panic," Axios announced.

After 2020's election, Virginia adopted more pro-voter legislation than any state, from expanding access to starting to amend its constitution to enshrine voting rights. But these reforms have not been enough to turn out voters in this fall's statewide elections, where the top-of-the-ticket Democratic and Republican candidates for governor are close in polls but seen as underwhelming.
