“We have reached a confidential agreement with our landlord, Hub Properties, that will allow us to fulfill our obligation to them,” state party chairman Pat Shortridge said in a statement late Monday night.
He said the GOP’s landlord will ask for a continuance at Tuesday’s hearing, which allow the time to finalize the agreement.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
