MATHEWS — Democrat Norm Mosher told the NAACP in Mathews County on Monday night that the three legs of the "social safety net" — Medicare, Social Security and the Affordable Care Act — continue to be under attack by Republicans.
Mosher, a resident of Irvington in Lancaster County, is seeking to unseat Rob Wittman for Virginia's 1st Congressional District.
"I want to protect the social safety net," Mosher said. "The other party wants you to feel fear. My party wants you to feel secure and happy with your lives."
WILLIAMSBURG — Democrat Norm Mosher made his latest pitch Wednesday for unseating Rob Wittman for Virginia's 1st District seat in Congress, telling the Kiwanis Club of Williamsburg that many of the claims Republicans make about the Affordable Care Act and Medicare are simply untrue.
Mosher, from Irvington on Virginia's Northern Neck, touted lessons he learned from U.S. Senators Sam Nunn and Ted Kennedy while he was a staff member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. He recalled how the two of them navigated Congress.

It wasn’t hard for the three candidates vying for the 1st Congressional District seat to agree on the major problems facing the country. But they were mostly split on how to solve them.
Republican incumbent Rob Wittman, Democratic challenger Norm Mosher and Independent Green Party candidate Gail Parker laid out their solutions before a crowd of about 100 at a debate at the University of Mary Washington on Monday.
All three concentrated on different solutions to dealing with the federal deficit and spurring jobs in the region.

The guy shaking hands down at Newport News Shipbuilding this morning could be one of the more unusual Congressional candidates around -- Norm Mosher, the Democratic challenger in the 1st district, is the only political hopeful Shad Plank's ever heard to mention the Taiping Rebellion in China. (It was mid-19th century civil war that was perhaps the first step in the long process that eventually brought down the Qing Dynasty and, believe or not, was just a few years before our time.)
