AG candidate Baril has got the Hampden-Sydney men behind him

This short item in the Washington Times says that one source of support for the candidacy of Richmond lawyer Stephen Baril for office of attorney general of Virginia are the alumni of Hampden-Sydney College, about which the article notes -

"Founded in 1776, six months before the Declaration of Independence, Hampden-Sydney has a student body of about 1,000. Among its graduates are one U.S. president — William Henry Harrison (the trunk of this columnist's family tree), 13 senators, and numerous congressmen and state officials. A popular bumper sticker at the college bookstore reads: 'Hampden-Sydney College — Where men are men and women are guests.'"
