      Virginia Thomas, 54, is a special correspondent for the Daily Caller producing videos of emerging leaders and educators in the public square. Her ear is to the ground outside the Washington Beltway as a social entrepreneur. Previously, she was the founder of LibertyCentral.org (nonprofit for citizen activists), and has worked at The Heritage Foundation, Hillsdale College's Washington office, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the senior levels of the legislative and executive branches of government. She has maintained her midwestern authenticity after 30 years in Washington, D.C. and enjoys motor homing and the Nebraska Cornhuskers with her husband, Justice Clarence Thomas. Her degrees are: Business Communication & Political Science from Creighton University, and J.D. from Creighton Law School (Omaha, NE).

Radio talk show host Andrew Wilkow rejects the notion that conservatism has some stereotypical look, like Alex P. Keaton dressed in khaki pants and a blue blazer.

“What does conservatism look like? It doesn’t look like anything to me,” Wilkow, who also hosts a TV show on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze network, told The Daily Caller.

“It doesn’t have a race, it doesn’t have a gender, it doesn’t have a religion. It is a set of values.”

Wilkow’s message resonates with younger conservatives. In 2004, he started the website ConservativePunk.org, where scores non-sterotypical conservatives flocked because they “thought they were alone.”

In his college years, Wilkow said he “found an intellectual home in conservativism.”

“I was able to get conservatives over my appearance, but I was never able to get progressives over my thoughts,” he said.

Today, “there are a lot of sleeved, tattooed conservatives who ride motorcycles who are thirsting to be reached out to,” he added.

Wilkow also discussed immigration, women’s issues, President Obama, what wakes people up and his prognosis of the next election with TheDC’s Ginni Thomas. The other interview segments will be released throughout the week.

Wilkow can be found weekdays on Sirius XM Channel 125 from noon to 3 p.m. ET and weekends from 9 a.m. to noon ET. His TV show “Wilkow!” airs at 7 p.m. ET on TheBlaze each weeknight. It is now also available on the DISH Network.
