Jarvis kicks off Republican challenge to Del. Scott

On Monday, Mark Jarvis kicked off his primary challenge to Del. Ed Scott (R-30), and the Culpeper Star Exponent has the story.

As a minister should, Jarvis is campaigning hard for the Christian Conservative vote:

What is right for the 30th District, said Jarvis, is a representative willing to "go back to the original intent of the Founding Fathers," he said.

"The intent was not to have a church state," said Jarvis, "but they didn't want to kick God completely out of government. As a matter of fact, I want to get God back in government."

He offered two commitments to his future constituency if elected to House of Delegates - to champion "moral legislation" and not support raising taxes.

"I feel our citizens are taxed too much," said Jarvis, "and I want to invite God today back into our government here in Culpeper County."

He also challenged Scott's voting record on abortion-related issues, tax hikes and the "homosexual agenda."
