Thanks again to everyone who attended the 2012 RPV Advance this past Friday, November 30-Sunday, December 2 at The Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach. Over 500 attendees from all over Virginia gathered to hear about the plans for 2013, meet the candidates, discuss the past elections, and socialize with fellow Virginia Republicans.

Among the highlights were excellent speeches from Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, discussing the upcoming campaign for governor; Gov. Bob McDonnell; Congressman Scott Rigell; and former congressman Artur Davis.

Congratulations to the 8th District’s Tim Nank, who won the 2012 GOP Outstanding Outreach Volunteer Award for his veterans’ coalition projects, and the Fairfax County Republican Committee, which won Outstanding State Unit of 2012 for its incredible door-knocking and phone-banking efforts.

Attendees also heard from each of the 2013 candidates for Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General. This weekend showed that we have no shortage of great candidates for these offices.

Thank you to everyone who attended, and after a break to enjoy the holidays, let’s come back ready to go in 2013!
