5th District GOP Committee chooses Primary
Yesterday at a meeting of the 5th District Committee in Appomattox members of the committee voted 19-13 in favor of a primary. Honestly I am totally shocked that this happened. Despite my support for Hurt in this race I supported a convention for many reasons. I really liked the challenge of winning in a setting where Hurt wasn't supposed to win if we had a convention. From what I had heard with my ear to the ground over the past two weeks all signs said convention so I am really shocked. I am quite concerned about the number of Dems who will possibly plan to vote in the primary for someone who has less ability to challenge ole Tommy boy. But I'll take the cards that are dealt and I am looking forward to a primary.
