Comstock served as a co-chairwoman of the Romney campaign in Virginia. She also seconded Romney's nomination at the 2012 Republican National Convention.

By running for Congress a couple of months after her election to the House of Delegates, Comstock again shows that her personal ambitions trump service to her constituents. Her voting record in Richmond was inconsistent with the interests of 34th District voters and we can only expect that her votes in Congress would be equally out-of-step with Northern Virginians

I used to be in Barbara Comstock's district (pre-redistricting). I signed up for constituent news. I was amazed when I started receiving factual updates vs. the usual BS that most politicians send out....I love her emergency preparedness email. It tells me exactly what to look for or who to contact. I'm still on her distro. I'm sure she'll be a great representative for our region.
