Charlottesville Republicans hosted a picnic in Pen Park on Saturday, June 2. About 100 people turned out to hear guest speakers, including former Virginia First Lady Susan Allen, U.S. Senate candidate E.W. Jackson, and Fifth District Congressman Robert Hurt.
In a one-on-one interview with the Charlottesville Libertarian Examiner just as the event began, Congressman Hurt spoke about the most recent jobs report from the federal government and how to improve economic conditions in the Fifth Congressional District.
