I am stuned.
I’m going to have to process all this.
It is so different from what we do out here in the provinces.
By the way, are you describing Connecticut? That other guy was talking Virginia. And I’m still trying to wrap my head around what he told me. But, I can sure relate to what he said about the groupthink and oldsters not cooperating with anyone else who tries to participate in the party life on the local level.
I will post more after I recover from this latest convention we just had.
That’s the Virginia process.
I’ve done a couple of conventions. They are fun. We tried to nominate Bob Marshall for Senate against Jim Gilmore, but lost by a small amount — in raw numbers, Marshall had more people at the convention, but it was because Prince William County had a large contingent supporting him, so our votes didn’t count for much.
We also had the upstart Jeff Frederick trying to win the RPV chair, and he did win that seat, only to get run out of office the following year.
