We have just learned that the Northumberland County (VA) Republican Party voted 45 to 9 to nominate former deputy sheriff Junior Fisher (not the brightest bulb on the tree) for the position as Supervisor, Fourth District.
By this action, the Party turned its back on long-time Fourth District Supervisor Tommy Tomlin.
Why did they slap down Tommy Tomlin, a loyal Republican and conscientious supervisor? Two reasons:
- Tomlin dared to vote a few times against the cabal of Ronnie Jett, Joe Self and Richard Haynie (quite possibly the dumbest man in the county); and,
- Tomlin dared to vote WITH Supervisor Jim Long, the sole African-American member of the Board of Supervisors.
This tells us all we need to know about Northumberland County Republicans.
