One would think with the power of the woman’s vote in Virginia, one time Stafford Supervisor Susan Stimpson who’s attempting to unseat Delegate Bill Howell in the June 9th primary, would have at least left a calling card at the Virginia Federation of Republican Women’s Convention over the weekend.
Sadly for the tea party loyalist, there was no card and no message of sponsorship, unlike her opponent. Stimpson was just a no-show. But that did not stop several hundred Republican women from gathering at the Hilton in Short Pump, Va., to foster common goals of advancing conservative principles and candidates.
Still it’s amazing to this independent observer that Stimpson would “snub” such a powerful group of women. Now I’ll give it to Stimpson that she found it more critical to actually be out campaigning. But what ever happened to courtesy? Yeah, there’s that tea party attitude I’ve come to know.
