I have attended conventions here in VA. The last one we defeated Hager as Chairman and put Jeff Frederick in. The Establishment couldn't tolerate the change and concocted some phony charges to remove Jeff a few years later and put one of their own in. We fell just a few votes short of getting Bob Marshall the nomination over Gilmore. The Establishment doesn't like conventions because they can't control the delegate selection process.

I'll be voting for Marshall on Tuesday and will attend the convention on the 16th.

I remember that whole mess with Jeff Frederick and what the establishment did to him.

To be honest, I’ve given up on the Accomack GOP. I joined at the first opportunity I could after I moved here in ‘03. I basically got drummed out of the women’s group and when I tried to rejoin the main group in ‘08 -— let me put it this way, I’m still waiting to hear from them.

For obvious reasons, I’ve got no use for the Establishment.

Thank you for taking the time to explain the “nuances” to me. I understand where you are coming from, and now I agree with you, which I didn’t when we started this conversation. Good luck at the convention - I’ll be rooting for you.

I’m still voting for Jamie tomorrow, but I have no ill will against Bob Marshall and wish him luck.

Friends?
