At this morning's Republican Breakfast, Chuck Smith let it be known that he was not running for reelection as Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia Beach (RPVB) and was endorsing Kenny Golden's (current Vice Chairman, Operations) candidacy to be the next Chairman. This will make Chuck the third consecutive one-term Chairman of the RPVB (following Colin Stolle and Mark McKinney). Has the job become that much of a hot seat? The upcoming Republican organizational meetings:
RPVB Mass Meeting: Saturday, April 5 at Cape Henry Collegiate School, 10 A.M. To be chosen will be the new RPVB Chairman, the entire Republican City Committee, and the Virginia Beach delegations to the 2nd Congressional District Convention and Republican Party of Virginia state convention.
Any Virginia Beach registered voter who professes Republican principles may attend and vote. (Others may simply attend.) However, to stand for RPVB Chairman, City Committee member, 2nd District delegate, or state delegate, you must prefile the official registration form by March 21. The forms are available at RPVB Headquarters.
2nd Congressional District Convention - May 3 at Tidewater Community College's Virginia Beach campus.
Republican Party of Virginia state convention - May 30 & 31 at the Richmond Convention Center.
That's where we select Bob Marshall to run for U.S. Senate. If you support Jim Gilmore or Bob Berry, you don't want to go to Richmond.
