Howie Lind for Virginia's 10th Congressional District GOP Chairman at tomorrow's GOP Convention in Warrenton, Va. Howie has been a strong supporter over the years of Conservative values and beliefs and he is the true "Reagan Conservative" of this race! He has done a remarkable job over the past two years on the State Central Committee representing the 10th District and has a wealth of personal and professional experiences, including serving as a Naval Officer for 20 years, Bush appointee, and now an industry executive, all of which make him the right candidate for the job.
Lind started considering a run for Chairman back in 2008. "I looked around and realized after 2008 that if every one of us didn't pick up a tool and start rebuilding our Party and our nation, nothing would change," Lind told the RC Blog. "This is in the true Reagan mold - we, the people need to be responsible. I saw this specific position as the place I could serve the most effectively."
He added, "We have many great challenges here in Virginia, but our greatest is to return to a 'narrative' of why Conservatism - the Constitution - matters to every American. I will bring passion, honesty, and a willingness to work, work, work to elect Conservatives in the 10th District of Virginia."
In reflecting on what it means to be a "Reagan Conservative", Lind said, "Individual liberty and God ordained government - where every citizen is the captain of his or her future, and the state is a minimal intrusion. Freedom works! The great conservative agenda of Reagan is the continuing historic vision of our Founders."

Editor's Note: The RC Blog has received a number of emails since last night about a Dave Schmidt email that was widely distributed to convention delegates from "ReaganConservatives". Let me assure you that it did not come from my site or blog. Mr. Schmidt sounds like a nice gentleman and family man who has been instrumental in the party out in the Leesburg area, but this site and its contributors have been in Howie's corner since the day he announced he was running.
