State Legislative Experience — Knows How to Work the System:

Marshall’s opponents “… admit he’s extremely smart, very personable, and unfortunately for them, effective.” (Richmond Times 5/9/03)

“Marshall … combines a … sense of morality with a keen mastery of parliamentary procedure … Marshall has also been a defender of children with disabilities.” Richmond Times, 2/26/12

“…known for his encyclopedic knowledge of the House procedural rules…” (Fredericksburg Free Lance Star, 1-8-08)

“Del. Bob Marshall, one of the body’s most creative conservative minds …” (Washington Post 1/30/09)

“Marshall’s legislative creativity knows no rival in Richmond.  A bill drafting giant, he is smart, principled and owns a sizeable sense of humor.”  Charlottesville Daily Progress, 2004

Independent – Does Not Go Along to Get Along

“Marshall doesn’t hesitate to break with his party … initiating … the successful legal challenge to a 2007 road-finance plan thrown out by the Virginia Supreme Court as taxation without representation.  There’s little about Marshall’s record to suggest he’s go-along, get-along.”  (Richmond Times, 1/22/12)

“Lawmakers describe him as principled and intelligent. Some see him as a maverick, prone to bucking trends from either side of the aisle.”  Washington Post 1/12/09

“Del. Bob Marshall … is one of the last great crusaders in the General Assembly, follows his conscience, no matter how unpopular or inconvenient the results …” (Washington Post, 3-4-08)

“If any officeholder is unmoved by sheer politics … It’s Bob Marshall.”  (Waynesboro News Virginian 1/29/12)

Protects Fundamental Rights

“Marshall wrote the marriage amendment to the Virginia Constitution … the Virginia Health Care Freedom Act of 2010, the basis of the state’s court challenge of the federal health-care law …” (Washington Post, 1/17/12) 

“The General Assembly’s most outspoken and persistent abortion foe …” (Associated Press, Richmond, 1/7/08)  

Thinks Ahead

“… to his credit, Delegate Robert G. Marshall … saw what was coming … Mr. Marshall introduced legislation to prevent precisely what the Supreme Court has allowed in New London, Connecticut … His bill failed, primarily because other lawmakers did not boast similar powers of prescience … We only wish that Bob Marshall’s colleagues had listened to him way back when.”    (Winchester Star Editorial, 5-25-05)
