Ed Gillespie leads GOP candidates for governor in straw poll at PW Republican dinner

Virginia is a unique state that has an election every year. This November, Virginians will elect a Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General. Each party will decide its nominees through a traditional primary election on June 13, 2017. In addition, all 100 members of the House of Delegate are up for election this year.

“Prince William County is a key battleground for us in 2017,” according to John Whitbeck, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia. “It is great to see our candidates prioritize this great County so early in the process.”

The dinner featured a straw poll for all three statewide primary races for June 13, 2017. More than 300 people attended the dinner.
