CRFV Race Heating Up

A friend brought this to my attention. Apparently, the College Republican Federation of Virginia will be voting on its new statewide officers this weekend at the Republican Advance at the Homestead. So those organizations that claim they made a combined 90,000 phone calls for the statewide Republican ticket this fall, as well as knocking on 16,000 doors, will be determining their direction in the future.

When I was involved back in the day, we had our elections in the spring, so apparently it's changed.

I hear the UVA College Republican chapter chaired by Brian Gunn, an alleged native of Louisa County, claims responsible for 15,000 of those calls made by the CRFV. Not too shabby, my fellow Hoos.

Apparently a native of Lousia County? What an odd thing to say.

I'd vote for Maloney!

To bad I haven't been in college for a long time.

I would vote for Lamar...

The guy organized, raised money to fund, and sent EIGHTY plus CRs to Pennsylvania to work for Bush in '04.

Busted his butt for no pay to help the entire Republican ticket in '05.

Has been cited as a fundamental player in the efforts of such VA politicians as Mark Cole and Speaker Bill Howell in the Fredericksburg metro.

He's grown a CR chapter to over 100 members at a school with about 3,000 students. Lamar's been getting it done for Republicans for the entire three years he's been in school.

Maloney is a good and likable guy, but as far as I can see, the only person he's ever helped is named Maloney.

Don't believe me? Ask somebody from SU how many members attend their CR meetings.

And then the CR's will graduate and go run the YRFV. Good luck this weekend. Fun! Fun! Fun!
