Leahy and Tribbett to offer anaylsis on NBC12 Election night
I am pleased to announce that two of Virginia’s most prolific partisan bloggers will join NBC12 for our extensive election coverage this coming Tuesday night. Ben Tribbett, author of the popular left leaning blog “NotLarrySabato” and Norm Leahy of the right leaning “Tertium Quids” will offer their unvarnished analysis live on NBC12-TV and NBC12.com.
While Tribbett and Leahy both blog from a partisan perspective, both are not afraid to give an honest and sometimes harsh perspective of politicians and parties from both sides.
Ben Tribbett currently serves as the Executive Director of Accountability Now and Political Director of Firedoglake. His blog “NotLarrySabato” has earned the reputation as “America’s Most Popular State-Level Blogger”. Many Democratic candidates and campaigns have turned to his popular blog as a vehicle to get out their message out through the use of viral video or information.
Tribbett’s work has been featured on such national blogs as the Huffington Post and he recently made news during the Democratic primary when Terry McAuliffe accepted his endorsement via YouTube video. You can follow Ben on Twitter at @NotLarrySabato
Norman Leahy serves as the vice president for public affairs at Tertium Quids. In this role, he develops public outreach and messaging strategies to help advance conservative and free market principles in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
He is one of Virginia’s most seasoned and respected political bloggers. From 2002-07, Norman published “One Man’s Trash,” a blog devoted to Virginia politics and media criticism. Richmond Times-Dispatch columnist Jeff Schapiro called the blog “a hoot,” while Daily Progress reporter Bob Gibson dubbed it “feisty.” Today, he is a regular contributor to Freedom & Prosperity Radio, which is
heard in Charlottesville, Roanoke, Blacksburg and Martinsville in the very near future.
A graduate of the Johns Hopkins University and the Colorado College, he was a 2006 fellow at the University of Virginia’s Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership. Norman and his family live in Henrico County. You can follow Norm on twitter at @Tertiumquids
I will have a full preview of what to expect on Election night on NBC12-TV and NBC12.com coming up tomorrow on Decision Virginia.
