GREAT piece Chris. Also worth noting: the Sully incumbent was also nominated at a Mass Meeting.


There is nothing in the party plan that states a canvass can't be conducted for a majority (rather than plurality) outcome. It is typically not done that way, but it would only require an ordered preference ballot (first choice, second choice, etc.) with lowest first choice getting dropped off after the first round of ballot counting, and so forth. You can also call a pre-canvass to determine who will be on the ballot for the actual canvass (i.e., the top two vote getters). Just because the model call for a canvass doesn't do it this way doesn't mean the Plan prohibits it.

I live in Sully and have been a precinct captain for Stone North and South for many years. I would have voted for the mass meeting as well but with 3 kids and 1 on the way I haven't been an FCRC member for a few years. It is sad that people outside Sully are making the decisions for us.

Small correction to Steve Thomas: Michael Frey was first nominated in 1991 by convention, not a mass meeting. He beat Robert Stuber (now living in Spotsylvania County) for the nomination.

Since then, Michael has always been unopposed for renomination. I know he was renominated by primary in 1999, 2003, 2007, and 2011. I strongly suspect he was renominated by primary in 1995, but I haven't been able to confirm that.
