1st Congressional District Convention...

Rob Wittman pulls out the nomination over heavier favorites like Paul Jost.

Podium-endorsed James Bowden made it to the 4th ballot before being knocked out by a surge of Dick Black voters (why people would rally behind Black instead of Bowden is beyond my comprehension, but oh well).

I can't say I know much about Rob Wittman, I'll have to look him up and see how he stands against the Democratic Party nominee, Phil Forgit.

Ben at NLS has a really good report and analysis of the convention. Virginia Virtucon's coverage of the convention was set to be really awesome, until their internet connection completely botched and they were unable to blog the whole event...but read their post anyway, especially to get a sense of what it was like to attend the event.
