Virginia is Halfway there! Will you help us finish the race?
We finished strong in the Virginia General Assembly this year! As you know, HJ3 passed the House of Delegates two weeks ago despite heavy fire from aggressive, slanderous, ill-mannered opponents who made a spectacle of themselves during committee hearings in the House.
On Friday, March 4th, an incredible group of Virginia patriots stood up, showed up, and spoke up at the General Assembly (pictured above), and the Senate Rules Committee voted to carry the resolution over to the 2017 session. This delays action by the Senate, giving us several more months to secure those last few votes we need to pass in the Senate.
Friends, we are halfway there in Virginia! Halfway to becoming one of the 34 states that must stand up and take illegitimate power away from Washington, D.C.!
PLEASE CONTACT THE FOLLOWING SENATORS AND ASK THEM TO COMMIT THEIR SUPPORT TO HJ 3 SO THAT WE CAN ACHIEVE FINAL PASSAGE IN VIRGINIA!

Your e-mail might say something like this:
Our federal government is out of control. I know that you, as a state legislator, have the power under Article V of the Constitution, to put Washington, D.C. back in its constitutional box. I understand that Virginia is very close to becoming one of the 34 states needed to trigger an Article V convention for this purpose, but that you have so far refused to stand up and use your constitutional power.
As a Virginian, I am asking you to reconsider your position and to emulate our forefathers, who stepped forward in courage to resist tyranny and to preserve liberty for the people. I am asking you to do your constitutional duty by committing your support Delegate Lingamfelter's HJ3.
