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.

Reid Retiring

As many of you have probably seen, Del. Jack Reid is retiring. He is supposed to have a press conference at the Capitol tomorrow to make his formal announcement.

It appears that Jimmie Massie III will be the GOP nominee for the seat. I don't know very much about him other than he owns some type of consulting business (James Massie III Inc) and is a local Republican activist. The GOP local leadership is going to get behind Massie so it appears a shoo-in for the nomination.

Its a solid GOP district, so I cannot imagine the dems having much of a chance here. We will see if they even run anybody.

    I am fairly certain Linwood will not be running for the seat (although I would love to see it).

    I can assure you that Linwood Cobb in not running for Delegate Jack Reid's House seat. I am 100% behind James Massie's bid for the Republican nomination in the 72nd.
    Jimmie is a very respected and accomplished businessman with deep family roots in Henrico. Jimmie has been a strong supporter of the Republican party and our candidates as well as a strong supporter of conservative causes.
