As noted in the News Stand post, Senator Ken Stolle (R-8, Virginia Beach) ended the speculation and made it official: He will run for Virginia Beach sheriff (see Norfolk Virginian-Pilot). Although we rarely see eye-to-eye with him, we were saddened to hear of his other announcement: that he has Parkinson's Disease. Knowing first hand of Senator Stolle's bruising toughness, we're sure he will deal the disease a worse hand than it has dealt him. Now, about that campaign for sheriff . . . good luck senator! As for the subsequent special election that would be called to fill his senate seat should he win . . . are there any good Virginia Beach conservatives out there looking for something to do next winter in Richmond?
