New Convention Details

More information is coming out about the RPV State Convention. Here’s some of the wrap-up of today’s developments:

-Word on the street is that come April 1st over 10k delegates may have been filed. The big question: Can the AG campaigns keep the momentum going through May 30th? And is there just as much excitement for Bob at the top of the ticket? Evidence this might pan out: The Marriott and the Hilton across the street are already completely sold out. 

-Not a rumour: Mitt Romney will be the keynote speaker at the Commonwealth Gala on the 29th at 7 p.m. at the Downtown Richmond Marriot. Tickets are $75 for individuals, $150 for couples. You can find the form here. Will this inspire Palin or the Huckster to swing by on Saturday? 

-Not all of the Mass Meetings and Conventions have waded into the morass, but there are different things coming from different committees. PWC: We support Jeff, unanimous Resolution. Augusta: The committee supports Jeff, but just barely. Hopewell: We don’t back Jeff, but we won’t put that on paper. What else are you hearing? And will any of this make a difference come April 4th? 

-A minor but welcome logistical change: A $35 VIP pass will get you a boxed lunch on the 30th! I’m also hearing that they’re looking into streamlining the voting process and have taken note of the cluster that was last year. I was in the Shenandoah Delegation and we had far too many chairs–the Fairfax crowd ended up bogarting most of ours. They were probably wondering why a flier from someone running for a State Central spot in the 6th was on their chair (that would be me).
