PWC Republican Convention Gearing Up

By Greg L | 29 July 2006 | Prince William County | 4 Comments

I’m hearing that with the apparent blessing of the RPV, a county convention to select a nominee for the chairman’s slot on the BOCS is rapidly being set up and a call will be issued shortly. I’m expecting that delegate forms will be due by August 14th for an August 19th convention.

This is going to be a real challenge for Caddigan and Stewart to get delegates signed up and to the convention, but it is expected that over a thousand delegates will attend since the campaigns are already in full swing. At least with a short period between the delegate form deadline and the convention delegate’s phones shouldn’t be flooded with calls and their mailboxes with campaign materials.

Fortunately this process will be completed quickly, so we can get back to work supporting Republican nominees for November’s elections.

    Let’s see which of us is better at prognosticating. I’m thinking short notice, middle of the summer, last day of the fair, a special election that wasn’t expected — I’d be shocked if we got more then 300 delegates, but let’s say 500 to your 1000.

    My auxillary prediction is that, if there ARE 1000 delegates, one of the two candidates will run away with the nomination.

    I wonder how much it will cost to file as a candidate. This might be my big opportunity. Except my wife will be out of town, so I’ll only get one vote instead of two.

    We know the opinion of RPV now.

    What about the opinion of the board of elections? They haven’t issued one?

    The opinion of the SBOE is not part of the equation. Conventions are governed by the RPV Party Plan, and do not fall under the purview of the SBOE. That the PWCGOP is in planning mode is a good thing, and you need a date, to actually plan to. If one candidate drops out, there goes the need to have a convention, but you still must do the planning.

    The date can be set, and always canceled later. It doesn’t matter that a special election has yet to be called for, or a date set. This would be the only thing that the SBOE would have any play in.

    I’m not sure WHETHER the SBE can issue an advisory opinion, but obviously, the power of the County Party Plan is a function of both the State Party Plan, as well as the authority of political parties under Commonwealth law. Thus, the legitimacy of the nominating process is governed, in part, by Commonwealth law, Earl.
