Although Richmond Tea Party does not officially endorse political candidates, we do try to help our readers understand what “makes them tick.” Shak Hill is a candidate for U.S. Senate, a challenger for the seat now held by Mark Warner. When I last spoke with Shak, I wanted to find out a little bit more about what drives this man to seek public office. Boy! Did I get more than I bargained for!

The “plank” of the Tea Party, in general, does not directly touch on social issues. I will tell you up front…this video includes a powerful rebuttal to the argument against abortion in cases of the “life of the mother.” But, that’s not the purpose of this post. I want you to know about the man who wants to be your senator. His powerful testimony is part of what “makes him tick.” The two are inseparable.

Instead of my opinion, I think it’s best to now let the candidate and his wife speak for themselves. I think you’ll find it informational, and inspirational…
