Delegate Chris Saxman's decision to end his re-election bid came as a shock. Here's a quick take of what he's been up to the last week.
Friday, July 10 - hosts meeting with Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling. YankeePhil takes lots of pictures.
Tuesday, July 14 - has interview with Chris Graham of Augusta Free Press. Talks about school choice but not re-election. Decision to end run has been made but not released yet.
Thursday, July 16 - Harrisonburg Daily News Record gets the story. Saxman confirms in a phone interview. Unless they are in the habit of cold calling politicians to see if they'll quit, then someone tipped the DNR about what was going on.
