Monday, May 20, 2013Congressman Bob Goodlatte introduces the Republican ticket.
The Republican ticket of Ken Cuccinelli for governor, E. W. Jackson for lieutenant governor and Sen. Mark Obenshain for attorney general started barnstorming the state the day after Saturday’s convention. They touched down Monday morning in Roanoke at Landmark Aviation.
It’s all about keeping the momentum going from Saturday’s exhaustive energetic convention and coalescing around the nominees.
Many of the 80 supporters wore E. W. Jackson hats. Jackson’s four-round nomination was a coup for the Roanoke Tea Party. Though thrilled he is the nominee his Tea Party supporters expressed surprise in his nomination.
