On Tuesday Virginia Republicans recaptured the Governors Mansion after 8 years in exile. Bob McDonnell ran a great race, but there are others who deserve some credit. State party chairman Pat Mullins is one who deserves a thank you from all Virginia Republicans. His leadership, his ability to raise money, and rally state party activists was crucial.
Back in May I endorsed him for chairman, writing:
Pat has the grass-roots experience, and a record of success that we need in Richmond. He is a man of principle who has held fast to his conservative values while at the same time reached out to moderates and Independents. Pat believes in a big tent that includes conservatives.
Thanks Pat for a job well done.
