More Advance News

Another addition to the hospitality suites at the Advance. Americans for Prosperity will be in Suite J with former Senator George Allen. The suite is hosted by Delegates Brenda Pogge and Ben Cline.

Americans For Prosperity has been a unique force in Virginia politics over the past few years. One of their biggest initiatives was to get recorded subcommittee votes. They’ve also been pushing hard for a comprehensive energy policy for the state as well as a generally business friendly climate. Phil Cox, campaign manager for Bob McDonnell, is a former employee, and Tim Phillips continues to have alot of street cred. Allen was honored earlier this year at a dinner by the group, and in his speech he touched on a number of issues that became core points behind McDonnell’s platform.

This, combined with the fact that Allen’s wife is speaking at the Saturday luncheon, indicates that the Allen’s aren’t finished yet. I find it hard to believe that George Allen would ever be satisfied with the title of party elder. Might he smell blood in the water for a 2012 rematch against Jim Webb? And Cline–with Saxman out of the way (for now) Cline is increasing his already sizable presence in the 6th District as a pragmatic conservative. Observers will recall that he was Goodlatte’s Chief of Staff in the 90’s. With several terms in the House, a law degree and wife to his name, might Ben Cline be looking to the stars? If there’s a group with a ready made base to mobilize in a place like the 6th once Bob Goodlatte retires, its AFP.

Lincoln Day DInner Tonight

Tonight the Shenandoah County Republican Committee will gather for an annual tradition, its Lincoln Day Dinner. The event is such an integral part of Committee tradition that no one’s entirely sure when the first one was held–it dates at least back to the 1950s. For many, many years it has been the premier event for the party. However, its role as the party’s main fundraiser traces back only to last year–however, its already starting to prove its worth, as last year we made nearly $1,000 (much needed when we discovered we had to buy our own supplies), and this year we are looking to shatter records for both fundraising and attendance, as keynote speaker former Governor George Allen is bringing many people out of the woodwork. We’ll also be joined by Delegate Todd Gilbert, Senator Mark Obenshain, and all three candidates for Attorney General. 

Tonight begins, hopefully, another new tradition–digital documentation of the event. I hope to bring updates to you via Twitter, along with video with excerpts of speeches and tons and tons of photos. So stay tuned if you aren’t able to make it, and be sure to come back tomorrow if you’re going to be there.

Allen to Headline Shenandoah Lincoln Day Dinner

February 16, 2009 Leave a comment

George Allen will be the featured speaker at the Shenandoah County Lincoln Day Dinner at 6 p.m. on March 14th at the Yellow Barn at Shenandoah Caverns in Mt. Jackson. Allen has been making the rounds of recent vintage, indicating to some that he may be pursuing elective office sometime in the near-future. Allen has some Shenandoah County ties: Walt Smith of Toms Brook was one of his biggest supporters, driving then Congressman Allen around the state in his RV during the insurgent days of his Gubernatorial campaign against Woodstock’s own Clint Miller. Additionally, Delegate Todd Gilbert served on both Allen’s Congressional and Campaign staff. 

Also slated to speak are Bill Bolling, Todd Gilbert, Ken Cuccinelli, Dave Foster, John Brownlee, Bob Goodlatte, and Jeff Frederick. It’ll be a great night of politics. The Lincoln Day Dinner has slowly morphed in recent years to become the premiere fundraising event for the county. The event is very affordably priced for a fundraiser. For those who can’t quite swing it this time, be assured that there will be plenty of chances to catch our statewide candidates as they swing through Shenandoah County, including our annual Unity Picnic, an old tradition to bring together our team for the final fall stretch that was revived last year.
