Democratic Party Executive Director Amy Reger was hyped as an expert in Prince William County when she was hired this year.
Her record in the FIVE local Prince William races since becoming Executive Director-
FIVE Losses (Hurst, Feder, Rishell, Pandak, Dion)
What makes this worse is the opportunities lost. Prince William has always been more Republican in lower turnout election. Getting an opportunity to elect a Board Chairman in a federal election year, with a Democratic wave- and Jim Webb winning the county at the top of the ticket- Democrats were still crushed. When will they ever get an opportunity like that again?
Meanwhile, the 50th District Special election is another great example. Held in a district no statewide Democrat had carried in memory- Jim Webb came within 400 votes of winning this year. All Democrats needed was 200 crossover voters and they could steal a long held GOP seat. Instead the crossover went AGAINST them as Rishell lost by almost 1,000. Again, when will they get an opportunity like that again?
With Democratic hopes in the State Senate resting on Prince William success in the Colgan and O'Brien seats- and House of Delegates hopes rested on winning in the McQuigg, Frederick, and possibly Marshall and Lingamfelter seats- the question becomes:
How many more Reger led losses can Democrats afford?
UPDATE: As BVBL is covering, the resignations of the PWCDC are now rolling in. These are all Reger allies- FYI. She trashed Hilda Barg while she was supposed to be helping her on the Coordinated Campaign in 2005, and they went on to lose that race 51-49. Reger has chosen the wrong side of this fight. Now due to her divisiveness, the Prince William Democrats are collapsing.
