    Enjoyed the interview with Ms. Comstock. I know she worked incredibly hard as a Congresswoman but could not overcome the anti-Trump sentiment in Northern Virginia. With all the federal workers and people working for foundations, etc, which get their money from the federal government, it just wasn’t going to happen. Unfortunately she did not learn from D Trump that you just have to tough things out if you can but, again, as she says, the media would have hounded her. I think she will do a good job helping other candidates (woman or otherwise) to get into office on all levels.
