What's For Dinner Gerry?
News, People, Politics

Today Fairfax County residents had to choose between 11th District incumbent U.S. House Rep. Gerald "Gerry" Connolly and Republican Keith Fimian, who was Connolly's challenger in the 2008 election. Both Fimian and Connolly have stated that they are not taking this year's race for granted.

Voter turnout was particuarly important to both candidates today. As we all patiently wait for the election poll results to come in, Connolly's campaign headquarters at the Fairview Park Marriott of Falls Church, VA opens up the bar and the dinner buffet line to pass the time.

And I'm sure you're wondering what would be served at a Congressional candidate campaign headquarters. Tonight there is an array of pizza and brushetta. Is Gerry Italian? With a name like Connolly, I was expecting something more like Irish soda bread and corned beef and cabbage.
