Since I was able to out Delegate Frederick in his intentions regarding his race for State Chairman, the decision has become obvious. We must retain John Hager as our State Chairman.
I would suggest to Jeff that he announce today he is ending his Chairman campaign and call for unity in the party. He would then be free to focus on his House district and his reelection in 2009. With our majority in the House of Delegates extremely narrow it is imperative that we hold this swing seat. As Jim Riley, a constituent of Jeffs, at Virginia Virtucon comments in a previous post, Jeff is capable of holding this house seat for as long as he wants it. He may be the only person that can keep it in GOP hands.
Come on Jeff do what's right for the party.
A little bit of additional advice, albeit unsolicited. It wouldn't hurt to have Amy Frederick give the Speaker a call and offer to let her letter to him go down as written in the heat of the moment. An apology might keep young Jeff from being reassigned to 2 or 3 committees that never meet.
