Call to Shenandoah County Republican Convention

This has been posted to RPV.org but not to shenandoahgop.com, so I am providing this as a public service to any Republicans in Shenandoah County interested in getting involved with the local committee. I’ll have a full analysis up later on some interesting (but not surprising, once I explain the math) developments regarding the size of the committee, as well as a look ahead to the event.

Comments? Questions? Angry harangues? Leave it the comments, but remember: I didn’t write this. I only voted for it (and it wasn’t worth the fight to change this year).
