It’s pretty much been in my stump speech, and it basically just lays out… If you go door to door knocking, the American people know this country is headed in the wrong direction: the debt, the deficits, the economic growth is terrible. The regulatory burden is terrible. And the representation in D.C. won’t address those major issues. And so, I think the people are ready for some major changes in this country, and it’s a miracle. First of all, I attribute it to God. I’m really humbled and thankful – I’m a believer and so I’m humbled that God gave us this win.
I ran on Republican principles. We have this Republican creed in Virginia and the only problem with the Republican principles is no one is following them.
The first one is commitment to free markets. We don’t have any free markets in this country any more. Then equal treatment under the law, fiscal responsibility, constitutional adherence, peace through strong defense and faith in god and strong moral fiber. That’s what I ran on: The Republican creed. But the press is just always out there to have these exciting stories to sell papers, and the people actually do care about policy. When you’re serious… I give 30 minute stump speeches on policy, and the press made fun of me. They said ‘these aren’t good stump speeches. You’re talking serious issues.’ Well, the American people are ready for serious issues.
