GOP volunteer killed in car crash ... had been certifying primary petitions

A 71-year-old Republican volunteer was killed Friday after leaving Republican Party of Virginia headquarters in Richmond. She and her husband had been part of the certification process to qualify presidential candidates for the March 2012 primary.

Gail Martin and her husband, Bill, of Louisa, were involved in a single-vehicle accident. He has been hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

Many volunteers were on tap Friday to help certify petitions at RPV's headquarters, and this news was a shock after a long day and night. Our prayers go to the family at this sad time.
