Also see Jim Hoeft’s convention wrap-up: Whitbeck, Blackwell, Dunbar win; Cruz does well with ‘second ballot’ delegates.
Former Virginia Lieutenant Governor John Hager and Trixie Averill. John has been everywhere and done everything for the Republican Party of Virginia so when he was not chosen as a delegate to the national convention, it was disappointing that his long years of supporting the party was not recognized. Trixie was former 6th Congressional District Chairman, former RPV Western Vice Chairwoman, Virginia Director of Americans for Prosperity, and a staffer for numerous campaigns including George Allen, Jim Gilmore, Bob McDonnell, and Bill Bolling.
Mike Thomas and Trixie. Mike was a College Republican at the University of Virginia before going on to join Governor George Allen’s campaign and then his administration followed by years of volunteering for the Republican Party of Virginia as First Vice Chairman.
First person I saw after stepping inside the convocation center Saturday morning was Adam Washington wearing his shirt that I like. He had this on in December when we both worked the Jeb Bush table at the Republican Advance at the Homestead. Great shirt!
Rollin Reisinger … Bearing Drift contributor, numbers cruncher, political junkie, and another of the young people coming along.
