Reverberations from the '84 Stafford campaign

This Sic Semper Tyrannis post details how a bunch of the young people who worked on the unsuccessful campaign of the late Jeff Stafford against Rick Boucher in 1984 became Virginia Republican VIPs.

Somewhere in the archives in the basement is the college paper I wrote about that race - they lost despite being on the ballot with Reagan and Warner, and with Boucher only a one-term incumbent, and even though there were something like a dozen debates. Reading of the pep of Stafford's staffers causes me to marvel once again at the outcome of that campaign.
