There hasn't been much written lately about the Lucas appeal of the 51st district convention, still being adjudicated by the 51st district committee.
But there are some ominous signs that some people are done sitting on the fence waiting, and are moving on -- something I strongly urge Julie Lucas to do as well, for herself if not for the party.
Congressman Tom Davis has now endorsed Faisal Gill for Delegate. As his chosen representative is the head of the 11th district committee which will next hear this appeal, this is not a good sign for those chances. I don't imagine Davis would endorse a candidate if he expected his committee to overturn that candidate's nomination, and I don't expect Becky Stoeckel will be as willing to step out on the ledge for her endorsed candidate Julie Lucas now that her boss has accepted the decision of the delegates of the 51st convention.
I could be wrong, and the Davis endorsement could mean nothing. But Davis is a major figure in Virginia politics, so I expect his endorsement to be a bellweather.
