Salem's Mass Meeting - Another John Brownlee Win?
Roanoke Valley Republicans has great news about last nights mass meeting. Check out "Salem Sets Convention Delegate Record - Another Win For Brownlee?"
Greg reports record numbers of people turning out to be delegates!
"Once again we packed the Salem Courthouse (time to look for a new location). More exciting than that though was the number of Delegates who signed up. Last year Salem took 6 delegates to the Convention. This year we have 85+ signed up."
AWESOME! Same thing for my tiny unit in Wise County. We will be sending twice the number of delegates as last time and we are united to support John Brownlee. Salem is not completely united, but Greg reports -
"As for who "won" the Delegate count, I can't give a precise answer. What I do know is that the Brownlee people personally delivered about 20 Delegates, Cuccinelli personally delivered about 10 Delegates (handwritten on a crumpled up piece of paper) and Foster didn't deliver any Delegates. Adding in the other "committed" folks I'm aware of I'd say Brownlee has +/- 50% of the Salem Delegates and Cuccinelli probably has +/- 15% of the Delegates. The remaining 35% are either undecided or have not indicated their preference."
I would say advantage Brownlee for sure! I hope they can unite behind Brownlee like Wise County has.
