For those patriots who have been following the Virginia Tea Party Federation vetting weekend process of listening to and voting on the candidates for Lt. Governor and Attorney General - the results are:

Corey Stewart for Lt. Gov.
Mark Obenshain for Atty General

The members of Tea Party groups all over the state convened at the Life Church in Mechanicsville, VA, for two straight days (Friday and Saturday) of this past weekend.   It was a first time effort by the Federation who joined with The Middle Resolution for this event.  They did an amazing job.   It was a grueling process of listening to the same 32 questions presented to each candidate separately on stage, one at a time, and then answers scored as they responded.   These questions were kept in strictest confidence and no candidate was informed of them in advance and not privy to or aware of any other candidates performance.   I commend the Federation/Middle Resolution for the propriety with which this was handled.  It was impressive that all candidates agreed to participate in this event.    Those participating in the scoring from our group were Bob & Sue Sherrill, Elena Siddall, Dave Davis, Keith Ellenberger, Cheryl Hugo, DeWitt Edwards, David King, Don Mitchell, and myself.   Thanks to all of you.  I think you will agree, it was an enlightening event.

It is the intent of the Federation to be able to support one candidate for each position with the full backing of all the State Tea Parties combined going into the Republican Convention on May 18th.     I will discuss this in more detail at our next "working meeting" on May 6th.  Be prepared to participate in some way.
