But I thought we were voting for Chairman of the Party ... not for Emmett.
From Thursday's Staunton News Virginian:
While noting the connection between some of the candidates and the state senator, [Kurt] Michael said it is “Emmett Hanger vs. Kurt Michael.”It seems clear this election was not about Kurt Michael not being an effective leader. This election was about Kurt Michael supporting Scott Sayre in last year's primary.
Emmett Hanger said Wednesday that this is not the case. “That’s what he wants to make it,” he said.
