Nor did the Tea party.
I'm just guessing from outide Va, but this smacks of me of a niche type victory (ala Santorum or Huckabee in Iowa Caucus) that carries little chance of widespread support.) Am I wrong? - I certainly hope I am.

Jackson’s website points to connections to conservative activism.
He’s a lawyer and a preacher.

Does every conservative have to be a Tea Party affiliate?

(The true Obama persona is emerging, the one from his first Presidential debate.)
I'll suggest that the Tea Party was really split between several candidates. The Richmond Tea Party and I believe Federation co-founder Jamie Radkte including the great activist Donna Holt supported Supervisor Susan Stimpson. The Middle Resolution that worked with some Tea Party groups evaluated the L.G. candidates and had Corey Stewart one, Pete Snyder two, and E. W. Jackson three. Other Tea Party groups supported other candidates indirectly including E. W. Jackson. In one sense, Tea Party groups can't endorse a candidate - ask the IRS.
I will also argue that at least 60% of the folks at the Convention yesterday have either direct or indirect ties to their local Tea Party organizations. They voted for the Bishop - so I see it really as a win for the Tea Party organizations, minus some of their leaders.
BTW, Corey Stewart walked hand-in-hand with Bishop Jackson around the Coliseum just before the last ballot.

All three have Tea Party support. Jackson has been a regular speaker at TP events in Virginia. All three are good, strong conservatives. This is going to be an unvarnished test as to where Virginia stands politically.
