Red Virginia is reporting that Delegate Jeff Frederick may have an early delegate lead in the race to become the next Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, with 1037 pledged delegates while incumbent John Hagar’s total lags at 907. Of note, Jeff Frederick’s home turf of Prince William County will not select delegates to the state convention until March 29th, which suggests this lead should continue to grow.
Jeff’s credentials extend well beyond his rescuing the 52nd District from the prospect of being represented by Hilda Barg in the House of Delegates. He’s taken a District that Democrats had always considered a potential powerbase and turned it into a conservative stronghold. Jeff’s demonstrated ability to reach out to voters of all persuasions while remaining true to his conservative principles, and his solid record of success makes him a truly compelling choice for RPV Chairman. He knows how to run solid campaigns, build a dedicated and active volunteer base, and win and retain Districts — all skills that seem in somewhat short supply lately within RPV. He also knows how to take the battle to Governor Kaine to the point that Kaine singles Jeff Frederick out as one of the key legislators who have prevented his tax increase schemes from being enacted into law.
The deadline to register as a delegate and support Jeff Frederick for Prince William County residents is March 29th. Delegate forms and information about the convention can be obtained here. If you want to support Bob Marshall for U.S. Senate, or state central representatives for the 1st, 10th or 11th Congressional Districts, you’ll find information about that there as well.
Don’t sit these conventions and mass meetings out. The choices made are far too significant to let them be made by default.
UPDATE: Mason Conservative chimes in with the same conclusion. I’d not be surprised at all if a big chunk of the Republican blogosphere joins in for Jeff Frederick as well.
