Congressman Scott Rigell (R-2nd CD), Robert Hurt (R-5th CD), and Morgan Griffith (R-9th CD) are the latest to join in the chorus of Republicans throughout the Commonwealth asking that RPV’s State Central Committee postpone the ongoing appeals scheduled to be heard at Saturday’s meeting in Richmond and, instead, move forward in the business of campaigning and electing our candidates in the November election.
Many are appreciative that these three congressmen have shown strong leadership as they recognize the urgent need to work together in a proactive way and set aside the appeals hearings until the December SCC meeting. The number of appeals to be taken up Saturday will have members listening for hours — probably their entire Saturday will be taken up with the process, precious time that could be spent in the field for U.S. Senate and U.S. Congressional candidates.
