Chatting With Ed Gillespie (and Snooping Around His Office)

A short while ago, I taped a pair of video interviews with GOP Senate candidate (and friend of NR) Ed Gillespie. In the first, discussing the state of the campaign and the big issues at stake in his bid against incumbent Democratic senator Mark Warner, you can see that if you’ve donated to Gillespie’s Senate campaign, you can rest assured that your money did not go to fancy office furniture:
