Paul wins all 3 primary and all 3 alternate delegates. This is a district that is usually quite status quo.

A few more details from Virginia CD-6 convention

I posted this comment on this topic as the OP there asked, but since this appears to be the more visible one, I'm adding the info here also for relevance. Apologies if this is frowned upon.

I'm finally back home after the VA 6th district convention! All three delegate slots and all three alternate slots were filled by Ron Paul supporters, and we got all of the candidates in that we hoped to in three state central committee positions and three regional vice chair positions. Those previously used to running the place were not very pleased by our potent exercise in representative democracy.

Part of the way through the final result counting at the very end, one lady from the Roanoke County section leaned over to her very outspoken (and very miffed) friend and whispered, "The Ron Paul people are taking all the delegate slots." It was apparent they considered this to be a travesty. I can almost empathize with them on an objective level, but no way am I going to apologize for using the published rules and clearly overwhelming Ron Paul support to take over the party from the inside.

This is exactly why we don't give up. The outcome is not as sure as many would have you believe, and new victories for liberty are happening like this in every state.

There was also some very strong tension between the Bob Goodlatte crowd and the Karen Kwiatkowski crowd, as the primary where they face off for the 6th District Representative position is coming up in on June 12th. Her people made some bright red "FIRE BOB" shirts playing with the fireman motif, including her campaign info on the back. A number of people wore these during the convention. One guy who made a generic speech--and was vocal throughout the rest of the meeting--actually took off his button-down shirt at the end of the speech to reveal his own FIRE BOB shirt, simultaneously recommending that people vote for Karen. Bob Goodlatte and his contingent were sitting right there and obviously not happy.

The convention was a complete success for RP. We won every contest where there was actually a choice, and there wasn't even any foul play (other than a chairman who gave a speech which he promised "to keep short," then added 15 minutes of shallow stories and random thanks despite the fact that he wasn't even being challenged for his position).

My brother went yesterday (I couldn't because of Guard Duty)

Absolutely amazing that we won everything, including the district and vice chair and what ever else there was. I guess like you so the only thing that wasn't won was the guy who went uncontested to be one of the electoral college votes.

Yes, YES They go to TAMPA,

still there exists the question as to the first ballot thing but, these delegates and alternates are all Ron Paul in their hearts. I had posted previously about Ron Paul winning in the front yard of Carter Glass( author of The Federal Reserve Act) and in his hometown, but now Mr. Glass's own beloved 6th district has now sent 6 delegates to the RNC to support the growing CRAck in The FED's Foundation.

With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.

excellent!! Did we expect

Karen made a greta speech at the convention.

There were more Bob Goodlattte signs than Bob Goodlatte supporters there. With Karen it was the other way around. I am so grateful to have Karen as a candidate, but she must still win the open primary on June 12 to become our nominee for the general election. We will support her vigorously. Bob. Goodlatte won't debate her.

With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.

Should Help Karen

....and the State of Virginia. I would love to have Karen Kwiatkowski
representing me. I don't think I've read anything she says that I don't agree with and what a fighter for liberty and Ron Paul she has been and is. We need her elected!

Congrats Virginia. What a day this is turning out to be.

fonta

When I saw her in

Why We Fight, it was obvious there was someone very special being interviewed. Then reading her articles on Lew Rockwell. com clinched it for me. VA fight for her with all you have.

Thank you for

more fantastic news!

Congratulations Virginia 6!

I'm looking for the results from last weekend's CD 4 and 9, but I think we took 4 out of 6 delegates between them. All three of these districts gave Ron a slightly higher vote (43-44%) than his average (40.5%) in the March 6th primary so 7 out of 10 is encouraging but there is hard work ahead in the next two weekends. CDs 7, 8, and 11 in particular may be tough climbs as they gave Ron only 34-37%. And CD3 was won by Ron in the primary but it was reported on DP that the local party chairman was angling to stack the deck against Paul supporters. CD2 was also relatively strong for Ron.
