Interview with Eric Brescia

At a Log Cabin Republican picnic in Alexandria on Sunday, I had an opportunity to meet Eric Brescia, the GOP nominee for an open seat in the House of Delegates. Brescia is running in the 47th House District and the seat currently held by Al Eisenberg. The district is roughly the middle-western third of Arlington County.

Brescia, an economist, was kind enough to sit down with me for an interview, which I recorded on video with the intention to transcribe his answers to my questions later.

He spoke about his background and training, the issues that animate him (he's a big supporter of ending Virginia's socialist liquor trade and privatizing the ABC stores, both as a matter of principle and as a way to raise revenue without raising taxes, and he favors repealing the Marshall-Newman amendment, which prohibits the recognition of same-sex marriages in the Virginia Constitution), and his enthusiasm for being a candidate.

Here is the video

When the transcript is available, I will post excerpts.
