Former Virginia Lieutenant Governor John Hager with then-7th Congressional District Chairman Linwood Cobb … 2014.

Birthday greetings to one of the hardest working Republicans in Virginia — former Lieutenant Governor John Hager! He travels all over the Commonwealth to events and supports candidates, something he continues to do. He’s everywhere! Together with wife Maggie, they are in-laws to the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush, and former First Lady Laura Bush. Their son Henry is married to the Bush’s daughter Jenna. Here are just a few of the many photos I have taken of the LG at GOP events throughout the years with a sincere thanks for all he has done to advance the causes we all believe in. Happy Birthday, John Hager!

Linwood Cobb


























By Lynn R. Mitchell

Linwood Cobb, 7th Congressional District chairman, at Saturday’s Chesterfield County Republican Committee Lincoln-Reagan dinner and U.S. Senate candidates forum.

Linwood has done an extraordinary job as chairman of the district that is represented by Congressman Eric Cantor who is now the U.S. House Majority Leader. Together, they have worked to build the party by bringing in voters with events like the annual Republican Roundup held each fall and the annual Eric Cantor breakfast that hosted 1,200 people this year.

We need Linwood’s leadership to continue as chairman when the 7th Congressional District convention is held this Saturday.
