Virginia State Senator Amanda Chase announced her campaign to succeed controversial governor Ralph Northam while speaking outside the state capital on Monday.
Chase is known for her willingness to challenge Northam’s progressive agenda, and she staked out defense of the Second Amendment as a leading campaign proposal in her announcement speech.
She slammed the leftward drift of Virginia Democrats, who have taken advantage of a progressive tilt in the state’s population to push an agenda that many have considered radical for the state.
“Liberal bills are now mandating a 100% increase in the minimum wage, abortion at birth, drivers licenses’ for illegal, [assault weapons bans] that got defeated today… and the list goes on. Virginians deserve better! Virginians deserve better than the liberal socialistic agenda that has taken over the state capital.”
The BIG announcement…🇺🇸🙏🏻

Chase went on to slam Virginia sanctuary city and state policies that enable illegal alien crime without repercussions.
Northam won’t be running for governor again, as Virginia executives are limited to only one term by the state constitution. But the racially controversial governor’s tainted legacy could give conservatives a chance to regain power in the state government through unifying the commonwealth’s diverse population.
Chase is known for her willingness to challenge Northam, when some Republican state senators and delegates have declined to do so. She called for Northam’s resignation shortly after he began a now seemingly failed gun control push, citing his shocking defense of moment-of-birth abortion and infamous blackface controversy.
Chase is also unafraid to fight liberal elements within her own party, resigning from the Republican caucus in the state senate when a liberal centrist took control of it.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
