Also, see President Obama’s speech at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum “about honoring the pledge of ‘never again’ by doing everything we can to prevent mass atrocities and genocide.” The question today: what to do about Syria, where the regime has murdered thousands of its own citizens and continues to do so as we speak.

    After the second round of 5th District caucuses, Peyton Williams plans a brief appearance at a John Douglass for Congress campaign party in Charlottesville this evening.  Williams was campaigning in Prince Edward County until 9pm and expects to deliver the following remarks some time after 10:30pm at the event.

    Hello, I’m Peyton Williams.  First of all,  I want to thank John and his campaign for taking the time this afternoon to personally invite me and my staff to this event.  I also want to say that John has been running  an energetic campaign – he’s doing very well and I want to congratulate him.

    I want to thank my wife Bobbie, my campaign manager, Erin, and my wonderful staffers, Kelley, Jac, Johanna, and Leonore.  They have worked harder than I thought possible to put together an organization across a huge district in just a matter of weeks. I want to thank my supporters and delegates all over the district for believing in our campaign.  I look forward to seeing them at the Convention and to all of us working together over  the next six months to re-elect Barack Obama, elect Tim Kaine and replace Robert Hurt.
