Augusta County calls mass meeting for faux 24th senate district convention

Republican elephantBy Lynn R. Mitchell

Another waste of time? This one, however, is closed — if you didn’t prefile by March 27, you cannot attend. Closed proceedings to electe “delegates” to a closed convention. And the beat goes on. (See Primary, or convention in 24th Senate District? and ‘First they came for the volunteers, and I did not speak out’).
