Earlier today Virginia Young Republicans held their convention in Arlington. In their straw poll for their choice for Lt. Governor, Susan Stimpson won easily with an impressive 40.5% of the vote in a field of 7 candidates. Pete Snyder came in a distant second with 21.5% of the vote. What makes the vote particularly interesting is Pete’s support is to be found almost exclusively in Northern Virginia (and out of state) and the convention was held in Arlington, the most northern of Northern Virginia, and what should be the very heart of support for Pete Snyder.
