This past Saturday, Rappahannock County Democrats held their annual brunch at the Washington Fire Hall. The attendance was a “record 140 party faithful” (and likely a few disgruntled Republicans).
As usual, Robert “Smiggy” Smith and his amazing music set the tone for a raucous round of speech making by Gene Rossi, who is running for lieutenant governor, and Tristan Shields, a singer and entertainer who is running for the Democratic nomination to fill Virginia’s 18th House of Delegates seat.

RICHMOND, Va. (NEWSPLEX) -- A second Democrat has filed petitions to earn a spot in the race for lieutenant governor on the June primary ballot.
Gene Rossi is a former federal prosecutor.
According to state law, statewide candidates need at least 10,000 petition signatures from registered Virginia voters, and 400 or more from each congressional district.
Rossi will be up against Susan Platt, Joe Biden's former chief of staff, and Justin Fairfax, another former Assistant U.S. Attorney, in the June 13 primary.
