Warner’s stop downtown

Brent Finnegan -- October 2nd, 2008

Mark Warner stopped in downtown Harrisonburg earlier today, bringing with him several Republican endorsers. Riley Murray has good coverage of the stop on his blog.

Why candidates continue to stop at Jess’s is beyond me.

    ’bout time the default venue were switched to someplace more elevated –the oasis gallery or maybe the new library.

    I believe it is so that they interact with the “common folk”.

    They should go to the Grill in that case.

    It is beyond most who write on this blog. Not all who have eyes see. Not all who have ears hear. Emmy has understanding.

    I was kind of joking. I think it used to make more sense and now its just tradition. But, Jess’ is still very busy and you see people from all walks of life going in for a bite. Personally, I’d be more inclined to show up if it were at the library because I don’t eat at Jess’ or the Grill and would feel weird going in there just to see him. But, that’s just me.
