While Hugo Chavez is dead, his tactics and ideas live on right here in Prince William County, courtesy of folks like Milt Johns and Wally Covington. Dontcha just love it when Republicans show that beyond all the rhetoric, what they really want most is to be tinpot third-world communist dictators?
The Prince William County Republican Committee has issued their call for a convention with a filing deadline of February 23rd, and an overview of the call and convention dates are in an article at PWC News Network. Don’t wait to submit your delegate form, get it in now.
Some folks might have a few more questions about […]
Bill Card won the chairmanship of the Prince William County Republican Committee today by a pretty comfortable margin. Both candidates ran excellent, upbeat races and are to be commended for their dedication to the Committee and commitment to help it succeed. There’s no indication at all that there will be any residual animosity and every sign points […]
This is one of those years when local committees reorganize themselves, and this year Lyle Beefelt, who has done an utterly outstanding job of sheparding the PWCGOP through the perils of committee politics is not running for re-election. That has left an opening for Tom Whitmore, a dedicated activist who currently serves as Vice-Chair, to […]
Incumbent Gainesville school board representative Don Richardson got trounced by Alyson Satterwhite 42-13 at tonight’s committee meeting, putting a long-awaited, thundering nail in the political coffin of a board member who angrily told parents to “grow up” when they expressed concerns about the county schools. Congratulations to Alyson Satterwhite who has been working a long time for this.
Tonight the Prince William County Republican Committee will choose which candidates for school board will receive their endorsement. One of the contested races is in Gainesville, where Alyson Satterwhite is seeking to replace incumbent Don Richardson. Both have received important endorsements, as the following videos demonstrate.
Chris Royse made his official announcement of his campaign for Woodbridge Supervisor at last night’s meeting of the Prince William County Republican Committee, and while I wasn’t set up to record video I figured that readers would be interested in seeing what he had to say even if the footage isn’t quite up to my […]
Campaigns in Prince William County are getting in gear as filing deadlines rapidly approach. Looking at the progress candidates have made (or not) gives us a good idea of just who is serious about winning, and who is not. Here’s the breakdown:

For those of you that missed last weekend’s PWCRC Convention, here’s a highlights video for you. Enjoy.
Here’s the video of Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli at the PWCRC Lincoln-Reagan Dinner last week. Seeing how clearly and convincingly he makes his arguments, it’s not hard to understand why liberals get so incredibly upset with him. Ken is a real threat to the liberal agenda, making him one […]
Last night’s PWCRC Lincoln-Reagan dinner at Heritage Hunt went way beyond expectations for a local committee’s fundraising dinner. Sure, you had the usual speeches — and they were very good, especially Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s keynote address, but it was the extras this year that put this event way over the top. The committee brought […]
For those of you who missed the 2009 Patriot Dinner hosted by the Prince William County Republican Committee a while back, you missed a great event. Here’s an overview of what happened that night, and as you can see not only was the place packed, but the program was absolutely tremendous. […]
There was a big turnout at last night’s rain-soaked opening of the headquarters of the Prince William County Republicans last night where Attorney General nominee Ken Cuccinelli and local elected officials helped kick off the general election campaign. This was a great gear-up to this Saturday’s surge when volunteers will knock doors in precincts all […]
Among the candidate endorsements at this weekend was perhaps the strangest candidate endorsement ever given. Congressman Tom Davis is apparently interested in being a delegate to the Republican National Convention, which comes as little surprise. Congressman Tom Davis wasn’t at the PWCRC Convention, which is also unremarkable, given that the FCRC Convention was […]
A few hundred Prince William County Republicans gathered today at Woodbridge High School for a convention which ended up being a lot more interesting than I think most delegates expected. Since the PWCRC Chairmanship wasn’t contested, few expected this to be anything other than a pretty mundane coronation of Lyle Beefelt, but there are […]
The filing deadline for candidates for Chairman of the Prince William County Republican Committee expired at 7:00 PM Saturday, and unofficially, it looks like Lyle Beefeldt is the only candidate. Not only does the PWCRC get an competent and trustworthy chairman, but it appears so far that there will be no internal fight to […]
In April the Prince William County Republican Committee will select new leadership, capping off several months of behind-the-scenes jockeying for position that began about a year ago when the Tom Kopko faction of the committee began it’s quest to install Faisal Gill in the House of Delegates. After a pretty strong start as Chairman, Kopko […]
Got a few free hours on election day? There are a number of open opportunities for volunteer poll workers to hand out sample ballots and campaign materials at the polls. It’s a fun time, and it definitely makes a difference. Last year I coordinated and helped out at Stonewall, Sinclair and Westgate precincts, and despite […]
The Republican 11th District Committee met last night to consider Julie Lucas’ appeal of Tom Kopko’s decision, and the appeal was denied not on the basis of any arguments made for or against the appeal, but because Julie hadn’t obtained an additional twenty-five signatures to support it — a requirement not found anywhere in the […]
