GOP activits hear from Lt. Governor candidates

Seven Republicans who want to be the next Lieutenant Governor are aggressively pursuing delegates to this week’s State GOP convention. Five hopefuls made last-minute appeals at the Albemarle Republicans’ monthly breakfast. Steve Martin is a senior member of the State Senate.

Corey Stewart chairs the Prince William County Board Of Supervisors. He believes voters should challenge state lawmakers who say they have reduced spending.

Sue Stimpson says she persuaded the Stafford County Supervisors to eliminate a business, professional and occupational licensing tax. Stimpson says advocates for higher spending came up with doom and gloom predictions.

E. W. Jackson is a critic of President Obama.

Scott Lingamfelter is a member of the House of Delegates from Prince William.

The other GOP candidates for Lieutenant Governor are former State Senator Jeannemarie Devolites Davis and, businessman Pete Snyder.  Republicans will also choose between Albemarle Delegate Rob Bell and Harrisonburg State Senator Mark Obenshain for Attorney General. Democrats will pick their candidates for those offices in a June 11th primary.
