|Last evening, the Executive Committee of the State Central Committee met to discuss â€œmatters related to the selection of a nominee in the 97th House of Delegates district and related Party actions”.|
After a lengthy discussion, they voted to approve the following motion:
“The position of RPV regarding the 97th House Legislative District nomination process is that the ruling of the 1st Congressional District Republican Committee of May 20, 2019, is in full force and effect unless that ruling is appealed and the State Central Committee rules differently, and that all actions and statements by RPV Staff, the RPV website, and the Chairman reflect this position.”
That motion was approved by a 7-to-4 vote. The ruling of the 1st Congressional District Republican Committee has been affirmed and is in force. As a result, tomorrowâ€™s canvass is still cancelled. References to it have been removed from RPVâ€™s website.
With the passage of last nightâ€™s motion, the 97th LDC, the 1st District Committee, and the RPV State Central Executive Committee are all in
The May 4 Convention was valid;
â€¢ The June 1 Canvass is not and is canceled; and
â€¢ Scott Wyatt is the Republican nominee for Delegate in the 97th House District
The cancellation of the Canvass by every controlling Republican Party of Virginia committee that could have acted prior to tomorrow has been unanimous. That has not deterred those holding the event, members of the now-disbanded committee on arrangements. They, along with the Peace campaign, will continue to promote the now-canceled canvass.
The voices and actions of those who signed up to be a delegate, participated in the Mass Meetings, or attended the May 4 Convention have been heard and validated. I am thankful to you for having taken part in the process of selecting our Republican nominee for Delegate, Scott Wyatt.
