Virginia Republicans Meet, Regroup
This weekend The Republican Party of Virginia is meeting in the far reaches of Virginia with the goal of reorganizing and getting themselves prepared for the important statewide elections on the horizon.
The session will feature high profile GOP speakers, like former Maryland Lt. Gov. and RNC Chair candidate Michael Steele. Steele lost a close race for the U.S. Senate in 2006 and has since become a ubiquitous talking head on Fox News Channel.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the RPV Advance, as it is dubbed, is the first face to face meeting amongst the crowded field of potential nominees for Attorney General. Unlike the Governor and Lt. Governor’s spot, which have clearly anointed candidates, the AG slot is open and there are three republicans interested in carrying on Bob McDonnell‘s mantle. (The democrats also have a fight for that position with two people interested. Here is a list of all potential candidates for the statewide offices, if you are interested)
Today John Brownlee, Ken Cuccinelli, and Dave Foster meet to outline their case for the nomination.
The blow by blow of their exchange was detailed brilliantly by the Crystal Clear Conservative blog, which is in attendance at the Homestead in Hot Springs. (A beautiful place, by the way, if you have never been).
Here is a roll of some other blogs who are keeping a close watch of what is happening at the RPV Advance. (They are all right-leaning blogs)
