Van Hollen jabs Dem opponent


GOP AG J.B. Van Hollen just got off the stage at Walker's party following a speech in which he threw a few jabs, thanked supporters and welcomed the crowd the “the first victory party of 2010.”

Van Hollen said for the last three-plus years he's had the "misfortune" of having to work with liberals in the Legislature and a "governor who doesn't understand the ends don't justify the means."

Van Hollen talked up his work in fighting sex offenders and getting criminal illegal immigrants off the street in his lead role at the DOJ, but said he's had to work a lot harder than he should have had to because Dems have been in control of state government.

He praised Walker, saying that if he's elected the state will have not only a Department of Justice that believes in the rule of law, but a governor who believes in the rule of law.

He also guaranteed the state will join a lawsuit against federal health care reform if Walker wins and that it will be the last election "where we will have to worry about mass voter fraud."

Van Hollen took a stab at his Dem opponent, Scott Hassett, calling him a “horribly unqualified, liberal candidate for attorney general” and also dug into Barrett, calling him a “horribly liberal, unqualified candidate for governor.”
