News Flash! Chris Saxman is NOT running for U.S. Senate

In a speech before the entire Republican Advance, Chris Saxman announced Saturday afternoon he would not be running for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. He thanked everyone for their support and help as he explored the possibility.

I had predicted Chris would run because he had a hospitality suite last night, he had lapel stickers made up, his consultant was with him as he worked the crowd, a camera crew followed him as he greeted people, and he had College Republicans volunteering handing out invitations to the hospitality suite.

It was brilliant. His name recognition rose tremendously the past three weeks setting him up for a possible run at statewide office in the future.

Chris Saxman is my delegate and I'm proud to be represented by him.

Its not yet Saxman's time. Running against Warner, considering his popularity is risky and a screw up can hurt, even if you are running to get name recognition. I hate that Gilmore is the presumptive nominee. Is he the only one left that doesn't get that he's not a good politician?

Very disapointing that Chris has decided not run. However, I respect his wishes.
