Sandy the blogger was at the Hanover Tomato Festival (Let me tell you, dear readers, I hated tomatoes until I moved here and now I ask for tomato to go with lettuce and mayo on my hamburger!) this morning and he went with his oldest daughter Clarissa who hates politics.  Well, maybe not so much now!

I went to encourage future Congressman Dave Brat and we did!

There will be pictures of Sandy the blogger with Brat, with the Libertarian candidate, James Carr, and we also got to meet Senator Ryan McDougle (I introduced him to Clarissa as “Senator McDougle” and he said, “Ryan” and I met Mrs. Senator McDougle who much prefers Robin.) while on location.  (I do not think we have any McDougle pixs!)

I met Carr’s campaign manager, Jill Anderson, and also Brat’s unknown volunteer too.  Both tried to win Clarissa to their candidate.  She explained the details of door-to-door and phone banking.  Clarissa and I might go soon to the main HQ.  (Brat’s HQ is at this website and here is Carr’s website.)  I understand that the Democrat congressional hopeful Jack Trammell was there, too.  I also briefly visited the Hanover GOP HQ.

I’ll update with pictures!

UPDATE with CORRECTION:  It was Kim Singhas, volunteer and Tomato Festival Coordinator not Amanda Chase that I met at the Brat booth.  I have corrected the title and person.  I thought I heard the title campaign manager in my discussion.  Many apologizes to Kim.

UPDATE AGAIN:  Now I owe Kim and an unknown volunteer an apology – easy in the blogging business to lay an egg!  I do not now know the volunteer to tried to recruit Clarissa for the Brat campaign.

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