Politics: 101

Spent today in Richmond attending meetings. It re-energized me as I listened to fellow Republican grassroots volunteers and electeds and heard about upcoming campaigns....

It started with State Central meeting at RPV Headquarters which ended with lunch graciously provided by Lt. Governor Bill Bolling. Then we headed over to the Greater Richmond Convention Centre for a steering committee meeting with former Governor Jim Gilmore as he outlined his presidential race plans. He was inspiring, straight-talking, and there will be more about that in a separate post.

When that meeting finished we hurried across the street to the Marriott where Bill Bolling met with about 200 supporters at one of his ongoing listening meetings with supporters. It, too, was inspirational as we listened to the Lt. Governor and his guests, Delegate John O'Bannon who discussed the transportation bill, and to Senator Mark Obenshain as he talked about eminent domain. More about that meeting later, too.....

It was a good day topped off with a panini from Ukrop's (yeah, I know ... I'm a cheap date) before arriving back in the Valley just before dark. It's good to be back in SWAC Country.
