Class of 2010 Photo

Five of the candidates for the Republican nomination in the Fifth Congressional District race to select an opponent to incumbent Representative Tom Perriello (D-Ivy) appeared today at the first annual FreedomFest in Greene County. The event, with multiple sponsorships that included the Jefferson Area Tea Party and the Green County Republican Committee, attracted about 150 to 200 people and featured food, drinks, and a moon bounce for the kids.

For the first time (but probably not the last) the five candidates posed for a photograph (at my suggestion).

From left to right: Ken Boyd, Laurence Verga, Feda Morton, Michael McPadden, Robert Hurt.

Video from the event will be posted later today.

Update: More photos from the Green County FreedomFest can be found on Facebook.

Which of them are worth nominating? Which of them are likely to be nominated? (They're not leading questions, I'm totally uninformed about this particular race!)

I'm genuinely undecided and keeping my mind open. Each of these candidates has to earn my vote. Others may still enter the race.

The nominating procedure has not yet been decided, though most bets are on a convention. I don't know which candidate benefits more from a convention than from a primary or a firehouse primary ("unassembled caucus").
