Beside the federal elections in November, Republicans in the Sixth Congressional District of Virginia will have the opportunity to choose who will lead the GOP in this region. Today, the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County Republican Parties hosted the candidates at their monthly First Friday meeting. The two choices are: Wendell Walker, the 6th District Chairman for the last three years, and Vance Wilkins, the former Speaker of the House of Delegates. Each presented his vision for the future of the party, both philosophically and tactically as well as offering a brochure outlining his experience.
On April 26th, Republican delegates will select between the two men to be their leader for the next two years at the 6th District convention at the Lord Botetourt High School in Daleville.
