Virginia GOP Ticket Begins 3-Day Statewide Fly-Around

On Sunday, a day after the dramatic Republican Party of Virginia convention in Richmond that picked Ken Cuccinelli as the party’s standard bearer for the Governor’s office, and tapped E.W. Jackson for Lieutenant Governor and Mark Obenshain for Attorney General, the trio wasted no time hitting the campaign trail. 

Their three-day, statewide fly-around began in Virginia Beach on Sunday afternoon and will include campaign events a total of ten cities before it ends in Fredericksburg on Tuesday night.

Sunday night, they will be in Fairfax, and Monday they will be in western part of the state, beginning at Weyer’s Cave in the Shenandoah Valley, then moving south to Roanoke, on to Abingdon in the southwestern corner of Virginia, and ending the day in Martinsville.

Tuesday begins in Lynchburg, moves on to Charlottesville and Winchester, before ending up in Fredericksburg.

The Republican ticket has a one month head start on the campaign trail over the Democratic ticket, which will not be picked until a primary in June.
