Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

New Lynchburg GOP

Tonight the Lynchburg GOP Committee picked a new chairman. Mark Peake won the nomination after current chair Wendell Walker pulled his name from contention.
Apparently Walker was a big supporter of Robert Garber, who ran against Preston Bryant in the primaries. I suppose the Lynchburg GOP was ready for a new leader, as Walker has been chairman for the past 10 years.
Hopefully Mr. Peake will begin right away at recruiting a candidate to field against Shannon Valentine in 2007.
