Hanover Republicans Come Out In Force Thursday March 10th at 7PM to PURGE NANCY RUSSELL – Feckless Hanover GOP Chairman

(CORRECTION: The Original Title said May 10. It is TOMORROW MARCH 10.)




Nancy Russell has been the chairman of the Hanover Republican Committee far too long.

She is the last local holdover of the Bitter Cantor Clingers in the area. Chesterfield’s Don Williams and Henrico’s Don Boswell (who may have seen the light) are not running for reelection as Chairman of their respective committees.

Eric Cantor was booted out as our Congressman but he is still the man behind the curtain. Nancy Russell has engaged in a war on Conservatives for years. As a former member of the Hanover County Republican Committee, it became obvious that I was expending more energy fighting the Chairman of my own Committee and too little time electing good people to office. The constant battles she has been waging to maintain control of the committee have become counterproductive.

Nancy Russell May Have Helped Elect Mark Warner to Another 6 year Term!!!

Just prior to Eric Cantor’s stunning defeat by local Conservative Economist and professor Dave Brat, Cantor’s right hand man, Linwood Cobb was defeated as the 7th Congressional District Chairman by Fred Gruber. Even before Gruber took over as Chairman, a number of high ranking Republican Officials and Elected Republicans began a smear campaign to nullify Gruber’s term as Chairman according to former Delegate Tom Gear. A vicious and libelous email was sent around the state accusing Fred Gruber falsely of online sexual misconduct. Gruber filed a $1 million lawsuit and named Gear as the defendant.

Gear has now sworn under oath that members of the Republican Party of Virginia were behind the false accusations aimed at Gruber. And Gear told tales and named names. And he claims that many of these same folks behind the smear are the founders and movers and shakers behind the Virginia Conservative Network, a group formed to try and keep the Virginia GOP moving to the left, which has made it almost indistinguishable from the Democrats. If you want to read the sordid and shocking details, Steve Albertson at the Bull Elephant has done a brilliant job of covering this story. Click here to read. It is an unbelievable tail.

And guess who is in the Bitter Cantor Clinger camp (and the Virginia Conservative Network)? Nancy Russell. Russell was not named as a party to the smears, but she, along with several of the members named by Gear as involved in the libelous smear campaign voted to deplete the funds in the 7th District accounts and send it out of the state. Much of it went to the Republican National Committee. Gruber had planned to hire a few temporary workers to oversee remote offices in areas not usually mined for votes by the Republicans in anticipation of the races in 2014. One big race taking place that year was the US Senate reelection race of Democrat Mark Warner vs. Ed Gillespie. IT turned out that Gillespie lost by less than 1% of the vote out of over 2 million votes cast. There is no doubt in my mind that the extra work and voter contact Gruber tried to make happen would have been enough to retire Warner and turn Virginia a little less blue.

The money that they voted out of the 7th district would have made a big difference in culling enough votes to possibly sent Warner into retirement. But we will never know because Nancy Russell voted to deplete the 7th District in what was widely seen as a sour grapes move for the Bitter Cantor Clinger Russell.

How Can You Help?

You can show up. The meeting starts at 7:00 PM but remember, the people behind the Gruber smear and depleting the 7th District are the same ones behind the slating effort that took place in an effort to send a handful of establishment RINO’s to the Convention with the votes of thousands of Virginia Republicans. This was thankfully overturned on appeal, but the dirty tricks never stop. I fully expect that Russell may have a trick up her sleeve to steal the election and remain in power. The location she selected is fairly small if there is a big turnout, so you can bet she will have her people there at least an hour early and the Firs Marshall will be waiting to shut the doors and not allow those that arrive on time to vote. This is the caliber of people we are dealing with.

Who Else is Running?

Glad you asked. The current Corresponding Secretary Russ Wright has challenged Russel for the position of Chairman. I spoke to Russ at length and I am looking forward to once again having a committee that reflects the views and values of most Hanover Republicans and, more importantly, one that will stop the petty power plays, dirty tricks and counterproductive wars within the party.

Russ has a web site here. But his platform includes:

UNITY – There will be a working position on the HCRC for anyone who wants one and who agrees to abide by the Republican Creed. Our meetings will be run in an orderly manner.

EDUCATION – We will spend part of every meeting on education related to topics such as party operations, history, and local, state and national government. The committee will always receive reports from district meetings and other events around the state.

ORGANIZATION – We will strengthen our operations down to the neighborhood block by maintaining a perpetual precinct operation program that keeps recruitment in focus.

TECHNOLOGY – We must compete not only now but in the future. We will do this by bringing technology and data together to bolster our collaboration, recruitment, donations and competitor intelligence.

If you don’t want Hillary of Bernie, SHOW UP!

Nancy Russell has proven that she is perfectly willing to cut off her nose to spite her face. Or more precisely, vote to deplete the 7th District coffers to exact revenge on Fred Gruber and Conservatives in general. Her divisive attitude and unacceptable actions have damaged the Republican brand and there is no end in sight should she be reelected. Her war with most of the Conservatives in Hanover will surely elect whichever Democrat wins the nomination. And this country can’t take more years of Socialism.

Below are the details. Please come and please show up early. You will probably have to sign a pledge or oath, but no matter your thoughts on that, it is simply another road block Nancy Russell will throw up to win.

Don’t Let Nancy Russell Win!

Below are the details. Show up early and vote for Russ Wright. We need unity now more than ever.

Hanover County Mass Meeting will be held on Thursday, March 10th at 7 PM at the Hanover County Administration Building. All registered Hanover County voters who are of one accord with Republican Party principles are eligible to vote for County Chair, Hanover County Republican Committee members, First District Convention delegates and 2016 State Party Convention

  1. Important revelation of how LOCAL politics impacts BAD or GOOD results as we work together to restore Christian self-government in our Republic. Nancy Russell could enormously benefit, personally and professionally, by visiting
    The Hall Slater Christian Library and Teaching Center houses critical rare Primary Resources that will change her perspective on the importance of following the Constitution instead of the politically connected whose mission is to personally benefit from power over the people, versus power of the people. God bless this attempt to RIGHT a WRONG in Hanover County!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
