Just under 200 people attended tonight’s Loudoun County Republican fundraiser in Purcellville. Many elected officials attended, including Senator Dick Black and delegates Dave LaRock and Tag Greason. Supervisors Janet Clark, Geary Higgins, Ken Reid, Eugene Delgaudio, and Suzanne Volpe were also there along with Sheriff Mike Chapman, Commissioner of the Revenue Bob Wertz and school board members Jill Turgeon and Bill Fox. Most of the current candidates for office attended including Senate candidate Shak Hill. Ed Gillespie was not in attendance but he was well represented by many staffers. All but one of the candidates for Congress in the 10th came to the event. No doubt the readers of this blog can guess which candidate failed to appear, the ever elusive Rob Wasinger. He apparently has no interest in engaging with voters in the 10th district. Barbara Comstock worked the crowd with support from a very large group of staffers, well over 20. Comstock signs lined the parking lot and the street approaching the venue. Her presence was felt throughout in the room. Therefore it was not a surprise when she won the straw poll. The results, in order, for Congress in the 10th district:

Results were reported by Loudoun Republican Chairman Mike Haynes but he did not report the number of votes or percentages in either race saying that some candidates would be embarrassed by the lopsided results. “The results were not close”.
