New Caucus Chair
I have seen or heard that there are several people in the running including John Cosgrove, Sam Nixon and Tim Hugo as well as Kilgore and maybe even Saxman.
I obviously am a big fan of Saxman so I would be supportive of him getting the job. He would also pick right up where Landes was being that they are from neighboring districts in Augusta County.
I have talked to Cosgrove at both the gala and the advance, and I think he knows what is going on and has some good ideas as well. He is also from a relatively safe GOP district in hampton roads, so he could be able to help campaign around the state if he so chose.
My biggest concern for having Kilgore as caucus chair is that he is the furthest away of anyone in the whole state and I don't know how effective he could be at helping with other campaigns. Also, with Morgan Griffith being from Salem; our caucus already has a SWVa guy in the leadership.
Conversely, someone like Tim Hugo would be good being from NOVA except that he will probably begin to have tough races himself; making it hard for him to campaign elsewhere.
What is everyone else's take on this situation?
UPDATE: Sounds like Terry Kilgore is the guy.
