Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

GOP debate again shortchanges Ron Paul while Romney mouthed every cliche. Gingrich and Santorum seemed strong

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

I plan to join @timkaine, @MarkWarner, @Jim_Moran, Bobby Scott, Montana Gov Schweitzer & 1,300 others at the JJ Dinner in Richmond.

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Santorum beats presumptive nominee in MO. and MN. Where are those pundits who declared it over in FL?

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Inconvenient fact: the auto rescue worked, magnificently. Tonight's debaters live in a parallel universe on that subject

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Bombast and threats do not a foreign policy make Newt, Rick and Mitt

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Will Ron Paul ever catch on that his philosophy is unwelcome in this party? War, education, debt & spending they reject your views.

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Except for Paul three GOP contenders all but declare war against Iran.

RT @dcmdvapm: @BuddyRoemer Thank you Buddy for standing up and having the courage to publicly call out those who continue to abuse the American people

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Mitt by going relentlessly negative may lose in winning tonight. Americans need a positive plan to help the middle class

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Proof that the House majority is in play. This is seismic http://t.co/l8RyRRIK

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

There is an almost rabid tone to the AZ debate. One is as disturbed by the audience as by the four candidates themselves

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Santorum's satanic concern a disqualifier for presidency. We've crossed into utter craziness in this campaign http://t.co/Sgbm229X

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Santorum has been carpet bombed tonight--by Ron Paul.

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Romney is tonight's winner--and all but certain nominee--by comparison alone. Newt has given up, Rick is deer in headlight & Paul is a crank

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Mitt's talk to empty stadium in Detroit a metaphor for vapid message and dispirited campaign

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Romney wins AZ and is ahead in MI. But MI is a weak win and presages a rough road ahead in OH,TN,GA and OK
