White House ’08: Saxman gets final say at RNC
Item by Chris Graham
Chris Saxman stuck his neck out there last year when he stepped up to the plate to become the Virginia chair of the John McCain campaign at a time when even Republicans were writing the Arizona senator off for dead politically. Now Saxman, a Republican member of the Virginia House of Delegates and Staunton resident, is getting something of a payback for his faith.
Saxman will make the final motion of the 2008 Republican National Convention tonight, he said in an e-mail this morning. Following McCain’s acceptance speech and then the motion to adjourn the convention, Saxman will make the motion to adjourn the convention sine die.
“It is a great honor and privilege to represent our Virginia delegation and play a small role in this exciting convention. But even more importantly, I can’t wait to get back to the Commonwealth and get back to work to electing Senator McCain as our next President of the United States!” Saxman said today.
