DPVA Steering Committee Meets – 53 Days to Election

  • by
DPVA Chair Brian Moran, Secretary Steve Bunn, Vice Chair Gaylene Kanoyton

The Democratic Party of Virginia held a very substantive Steering Committee meeting last night, focused primarily on the tasks necessary over the next 53 days to elect Barack Obama, Tim Kaine, and our Congressional candidates.  The Committee also voted to recommend to the full Central Committee that the Party chose its 2013 nominees for Governor, Lt. Governor, and Atty. General by primary, and oppose this fall’s constitutional amendment regarding eminent  domain.  The full Central Committee meeting this morning.  Some highlights of last night’s meeting.Read More »DPVA Steering Committee Meets – 53 Days to Election

#DNC2012 Actions, Schedule

I’ve been to five conventions, but I have never seen the party so unified, enthusiastic, and positive about putting forth our candidate and message.  From the business perspective, the Convention adopted the Credentials, Rules, and Platform Committee Reports, and elected officers.  I posted the platform yesterday and will post the Rules and Credentials, but there is nothing controversial.  Delegates signed the pettition to nominate President Obama.  I am looking forward to another exciting day.  Again, thanks to DemConWatch, here’s today’s schedule (complete schedule below).  Highlights will include Bill Clinton’s nomination speech for President Obama, Convention Chair Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa, Elizabeth Warren, and Barney Frank and the Roll Call.  I don’t know about venue plans for tomorrow – still planning on Panther Stadium and hopefully the rain will end today.  (BTW, Politico picked up my recent post re the credentials committee, here.)Read More »#DNC2012 Actions, Schedule

Gov. Martin O’Malley, Keynoter San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, and First Lady Michelle Obama.  The Convention adjourns at 11, to be followed by a party or two.  Full schedule below
