Jeff Frederick Update: Growing Grassroots Support, and Please sign the Petition

Over the past week the grassroots movement in support of our party chair has continued to grow. Last Monday a rather mean spirited facebook group popped up calling for Jeff Frederick to resign. The following day I began a facebook group supporting Jeff Frederick. Within four hours the group supporting Jeff Frederick grew to have a membership 70% the size of the opposition, by midnight the group supporting Jeff had about sixty more people than the other group, and right now Chairman Frederick's facebook supporters outnumber his detractors 215-133.

On Wednesday the Augusta Co. Republican Committee became the second committee to pass a resolution supporting Jeff Frederick. Two of the three counties to pass resolutions along these lines have passed them in favor of Jeff Frederick. After results like these, I am working very hard to keep myself from making sarcastic remarks at Bob McDonnell, Eric Cantor, and others who claim they represent the grassroots on this issue.

Right now we are working on gathering petition signatures from Republican activists across the state. If you haven't signed the petition, please do it asap and encourage your friends to sign it, as we send a strong message to state central that the grassroots supports Jeff Frederick.

The following is a very good article by a state central member from the 1st congressional district.

If you would like to get involved in the We Support Chairman Jeff Frederick movement, please join us on facebook, or the RPVNetwork, sign the petition, and contact your state central members and the McDonnell campaign.
