Tuesday evening brought together supporters from all over the Commonwealth to celebrate George Allen's primary victory. With a convincing win, Allen delivered a upbeat message focused on unifying support for his nomination throughout the Commonwealth.
What is sometimes not effectively covered by the media is the ability for George and Susan to connect one-on-one with citizens. Amidst the swarm of supporters and media, George, his daughters and wife Susan personally thanked their supporters. They took their time shaking hands, taking words of congratulations, autographs and some selective words of encouragement from attendees. In fact, the Allens stayed with supporters well after most of the media had high tailed it down I-64.
