In 2008, then newly-appointed Augusta County Republican Committee Chairman Bill Shirley and his wife, Susan, appeared in a reelection TV commercial for 6th District Congressman Bob Goodlatte. The screen captured them standing with the Congressman in front of the duck pond in Staunton's Gypsy Hill Park.
Fast forward four years and Chairman Shirley has endorsed and is supporting Goodlatte's challenger, Karen Kwiatkowski, of Shenandoah County, who has made her own election TV ad.
What a difference four years makes.
