I got to Richmond, Va. Friday afternoon with time to spare before my meeting with the Republican Party of Virginia’s nominations committee to see if I would be selected as one of Virginia’s 13 at-large delegates to the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida.
A number of other candidates milled around outside the room; former Congressman Tom Davis and former Gov. Jim Gilmore each had meetings with the committee to see if they would go to Tampa.
A number of Ron Paul activists from Northern Virginia asked me to toss my hat into the ring, so I put together a bio and stated my case. I ran for office at a young age, helped out on a number or Republican campaigns and traveled to train conservative activists nationwide.
