Dems record turnout

News ArticleRapp News

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.

A record crowd turned out for the Rappahannock County Democrats annual brunch.

The food was fabulous, thanks to Gwen Bates, Judy DeSarno and a host of cooks and volunteers. The meeting drew to a close with a rousing rendition of “Stand by Me” first by Tristan Shields and then by the Rappdems singers, who lip-synched the song for what has all the makings of a viral video.
