FROM THE CHAIRMAN DOUG SMITH
What a successful year it has been for the Rockbridge Area Republican Committee—a Sixth District Convention, a General Election, and finally, a Special Election—all accomplished! Enthusiastic voters and supporters of the Republican Party of Rockbridge, Buena Vista, and Lexington contributed large margins to elect Ben Cline to the U.S. House of Representatives. After that, we nominated and then elected Ronnie Campbell to replace Cline in the Virginia General Assembly’s House of Delegates. This past year has also seen a revitalized core of new and experienced volunteers, the formation of a Republican women’s group under the leadership of Catie Austin Brown, a revamped web site, and an ever entertaining and informative Facebook page. Above all, and aside from local and impressive victories, we continue to support our courageous President and Republican leaders throughout this great nation which we serve. Merry Christmas to all!
