Democrat Tom Perriello, who actually seems to have a chance of unseating Fifth District Congressman Virgil ("No habla espanol") Goode, a.k.a. Virgil ("Allah not welcome here") Goode, on November 4, will become the official Democratic nominee at the fifth district nominating convention on Saturday. Mayor John Wilson of Appomattox will be nominating Perriello at the convention, which is scheduled for 11am at Nelson County Middle School in Lovingston. Perriello has been mounting an aggressive campaign, evidenced at least in part by his fundraising prowess in the fourth quarter of last year.
Perriello’s campaign has earned notice and approbation for its commitment to community service, too, with the organization pledging to tithe 10 percent of its volunteer hours to community service projects in the Fifth District, which is the size of New Jersey and extends to some of Virginia’s most impoverished communities in the southwestern part of the state.
Coattail express? Tom Perriello gets the official Democratic nomination on Saturday and then it’s six short months until he puts Virgil Goode out of a job.
