Five Republican campaigns unite around temporary Sixth District convention chair
The campaigns of Ben Cline, Chaz Haywood, Ed Justo, Kathryn Lewis and Doug Wright are backing Jack Wilson to serve as temporary chairman of the Sixth District Convention on May 19th at JMU in Harrisonburg.
Wilson, the Fourth Congressional District Chairman Jack Wilson, conducted the 2016 State Party Convention also held at JMU.
Wilson has accepted the request of the five campaigns to stand for election as temporary chair, according to a press release sent out by the five campaigns backing him on Monday.
The convention plan also calls for fair representation on committees and a traditional rules package that results in a candidate supported by a majority of convention delegates.
The campaigns released a joint statement supporting Jack Wilson: “We must unite around a consensus candidate for temporary chairman that will ensure an open and fair convention process for delegates to select their nominee. We have concluded that Jack Wilson has the experience and the independence needed to ensure a fair, orderly, and unbiased convention for the Sixth Congressional District, and we support his election as temporary chairman on May 19th.”
