Lynchburg, Va — Incumbent Denver Riggleman attempted to stop the 5th District Republican nominating convention again with a frivolous appeal which failed by a 24-10 vote of the committee membership tonight. “Our campaign has followed the rules and worked with the committee diligently to allow the over 3500 delegates to choose their Congressional nominee on June 13th in Lynchburg” stated Good. “Riggleman’s attempts to thwart the will of the duly elected and certified delegates has been dishonest and will not stand in the way of the convention going forward” added Good. “It’s time for our party to choose their nominee and I look forward to a victory on June 13th. I’m prepared to take on a Democrat challenger and support our President’s re-election in November” said Good.
The 5th District Committee of the Republican Party of Virginia has scheduled their convention for June 13 at Tree of Life Church in Lynchburg. Over 3500 delegates are registered to attend.
