Walker & Wilkins In The Sixth

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.

  1. This will not be the only race decided by June, the primary race for the 6th District Congressional Seat will also be decided in Primary. The Democratic Candidate Bruce Elder dropped from the race due to health concerns, leaving Bob Goodlatte to defend his seat from the Republican challenger Paul Bevington, a Constitutional Conservative from Buena Vista, VA.

    1. Quite so. I wish the contest for the House seat was determined at this convention too, but that is a very important race as well.
