Virginia State ConventionSubmitted by rpforever85 on Sat, 06/16/2012 - 09:47
"The slate was just voted through. John Tate and Christopher Stearns were both chosen. based on information given by Chris Stearns relayed to me,, itll be 5 paulers and 2 conservatives. Should be a majority when this is combined with what we won at the district conventions."
Thanks to Beard4Liberty.
I'll elaborate once I'm at a computer, but...
The convention starts in < 20 mins. The state coordinator just arrived and informed us that we have no slate.
Up until now, there were rumors of a slate of 6 ppl, mostly Campaign for Liberty folk. This was disheartening, because there are over a dozen deligates up for grabs.
We only have Donna Holt, a national committeewoman, to vote for. Even John Tate (of C4L fame) is no longer running for delegate. What the heck???
But it turned out that a deal may have been made to avoid a convention fight. Granted, this is hearsay...but I'm hoping to find out the truth soon.
Regardless, we sure did drop the ball.
There are Willard signs everywhere.
Willard volunteers everywhere.
Not a single Ron Paul sign in sight. I've run into no more than 6 supporters myself.
This is awful.
I'm so sorry that Virginia has let you all down...
We MUST learn from this disaster!
