I wrote about the convention in a story that ran on the front page today, paying particularly close attention to the likelihood that Franklin County native Virgil Goode could well win that nomination for president.
Goode spent 24 years in the Virginia Senate and 12 more in Congress, and that elected experience has led some to say he’s got an edge in the nomination contest.
What do you think? If Goode does win the nomination and can get on the ballot in Virginia, would you consider voting for him over incumbent President Barack Obama and likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney?
You can read more analysis of a possible Goode presidential candidacy from Dwayne Yancey in these two past posts on the Blue Ridge Caucus:
