Reports are indicating that the Republican Party establishment has recruited businessman Tom Knox, who is the founder and CEO of Seniorcorp, to run the Congressional seat in District 2 for the state of Virginia in 2020.
Although he has not officially announced his campaign, an influential GOP consulting firm has snatched up many domains that indicate an upcoming Congressional run.

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) reportedly wants Knox to be the candidate to oppose Democratic Congresswoman Elaine Luria, the freshman legislator who won a narrow victory over incumbent Scott Taylor last year.
The GOP establishment wants Knox despite the fact that he donated to Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam’s campaign in 2017, helping him obtain electoral victory against his Republican opponent with his generous contribution.
Knox has a checkered history of political contributions (nearly $25,000) ranging from @RalphNortham in 2017 to @ewjacksonsr for Lt. Governor. One thing I did notice is that Knox never cut a check to @Scotttaylorva for any of his campaigns (Delegate, Lt. Governor, or Congress). pic.twitter.com/3FuaM8r1Te

Thanks in part to Knox’s donation, Northam would go on to disgrace the entire state of Virginia after his college blackface antics were initially exposed to the nation by Big League Politics:
Virginia governor Ralph Northam accepts responsibility for his racist past in a new video address released Friday night. Democrats and Republicans alike are condemning Northam after Big League Politics published a medical school yearbook photo of Northam and a friend wearing blackface and a Ku Klux Klan hood, respectively.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) called for Northam to resign as the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus convened an emergency meeting to figure out how to handle the Northam crisis. Senator Kamala Harris of California and presidential candidate Julian Castro have both called for Northam’s resignation.
Northam said he is prepared to do “hard work” to heal the wounds he has caused, but it appears that the damage is irreversible.
Northam refused to shake the hand of his black opponent E.W. Jackson during a 2013 televised debate in the Virginia lieutenant governor’s race.
E.W. Jackson, his black opponent, said that Northam is “consistent” in his behavior, and not shaking his hand was just evidence of that. (READ: Fallout Continues From Ralph Northam’s Blackface Yearbook Photo).
“It was insulting, but, on the other hand, I thought it was consistent with the way he behaves. Because, this spot he’s been running, saying that I believe that a child born with birth defects is born that way because of their parents’ sin is just a damnable, palpable, despicable lie. I don’t believe that. I never said anything like that. And it’s that kind of dishonesty that, to me, says this is not the kind of person that needs to be holding state-wide office. Not shaking my hand really just confirmed that,” E.W. Jackson said in an interview on WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall.
Due to his financial contributions, Northam’s racist buffoonery can be considered the handiwork of the Republican establishment’s new golden boy in Virginia’s 2nd Congressional district. The GOP masters may snatch defeat from the jaws of victory yet again with their new hand-picked RINO.
Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.
— Rep. Don Beyer (@RepDonBeyer) September 25, 2020
It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
