How Do You Feel About Your Political Party? / Hampton University Mobile Vaccine Clinic

Tuesday, March 2, 2021

Virginia Republicans will hold a drive up convention to select their nominees for statewide races, rather than a primary. If you are a Republican, will that affect your decision (or ability) to vote for the candidate of your liking? We'll discuss the details of how the convention will work, where it will take place, and who can participate. We also want to know how you're feeling about the direction of your political party following a busy election season. Finally, we'll hear about a new mobile vaccine clinic that Hampton University has developed to reach the Black community. Join us at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM. 

Today's Guests:
Richard Anderson - Chairman, Republican Party of Virginia
Chris Saxman - Executive Director of Virginia FREE, Former Republican Delegate in Virginia's 20th District
