Congrats to Jim Gilmore.It was very close. The 7th saved him at the end.
And BIG congrats to Jeff Frederick.

in an interview at the Washington Times earlier this month, apparently:
..."I think I'll be the nominee of the party, I don't think that that's gonna be an issue," Mr. Gilmore told editors and reporters at The Washington Times earlier this month. "But we have to get our people to the convention and make sure that they're there, and that they're voting. But we see no indication that I won't be the nominee."...Keep telling yourself that, Gov. Gilmore.
Hager's people are apparently using official RPV resources to help him win re-election as party chair. Chris Beer and Waldo Jaquith (!) have the story. I should point out I got the same email Waldo did.
I've been leaning towards supporting Jeff Frederick lately anyhow, and on Wednesday I got a nice call from Mrs. Frederick asking for my support. It's time for the old bulls to step aside and let there be a new birth of conservative leadership in the party and in the Old Dominion. I like John Hager, but this tips the scales. Jeff will be getting my vote Saturday.

It's time for a change. Bob Marshall actually took the time to call me personally a week or two ago, and spent half an hour making a powerful case for his candidacy. I part ways with him on some social issues, but he is absolutely right on on just about everything else from fiscal issues to border security and immigration. He does not ever compromise his fundamental principles. It's just not close.
Bob Marshall for Senate. I plan to support him at the convention next week. Join me.
Support the President's courageous stand and sustain his veto, Congressional Republicans and Blue Dog Democrats.
