Biggest Republican Round-Up ever ... 4,600 turn out to hear Rep. Eric Cantor

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-7th CD), Minority Whip in the U.S. House of Representatives, rallied the crowd of 4,600 at the 6th Annual Republican Round-Up held at Innsbrook in Henrico County. The crowd was on its feet when he came on stage and after his remarks, and cheers and applause greeted his "Let's win in November!"
Congressman Cantor.

Mike Thomas and Judi Lynch, RPV Western Vice Chairwoman.

Marcy Hernick and Marissa Pugmire (political director for Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling).
My parents, long-time Chesterfield County Republican volunteers.
Lynn Fairchild Martin, First Vice Chair for Central Republican Women and volunteer all over the place in Lynchburg.
Barb's cheerful as she waits for Eric Cantor to speak. Barb is a long-time Republican volunteer who worked in Georgia, Virginia's First District, and then moved to the Sixth District.
Always-faithful volunteers ... Fay Williamson, President of the Virginia Republican Women, worked the sign-in table.
The crowd was huge as everyone rose to their feet and joined in as the band played Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the U.S.A." ... "I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free...."
Brenda Campbell, former president of the Virginia Republican women, worked the check-in table.

It was great to see people, people everywhere....

Steve Rossie (Family Foundation) and Tom White (Virginia Right!).
Bretiss, long-time hard-working volunteer with the Chesterfield Republican Committee, with Marissa.
Allison (former ED of RPV) and Mike Wade (Chairman of 3rd Congressional District). I asked Mike for a photo of him for my blog ... he thought I asked for a photo of him with a blond ... and went to find Allison.
Kristi Way, Chief of Staff for Eric Cantor, and Mike Wade.
Is Chris watching me ... or is he asleep behind those sunglasses?

Matt Wells ... I've known him since he was a CR at UVA.

And as we left the Round-Up just before dusk, a hot air balloon quietly drifted over Innsbrook....
