Virginia Republicans will hold a convention instead of a primary to choose their candidate to succeed retiring U.S. Sen. John W. Warner, upsetting critics who say it makes the party appear closed off. The state party's central committee voted 47 to 37 on Saturday in favor of a convention. No date or location was decided. Former Gov. Jim Gilmore and U.S. Rep. Thomas M. Davis III have expressed interest in seeking the GOP nomination.

Sen. John W. Warner handily dispatched former federal Budget Director James C. Miller III in Virginia's Republican primary Tuesday, even though the conservative challenger had the backing of state GOP leaders. In South Carolina, meanwhile, Strom Thurmond, the oldest senator ever at 93, easily won nomination for an eighth term against a Republican who tried to make an issue of Thurmond's age.

As one who has been an active, enthusiastic Republican for over 35 years, I have always taken considerable pride in our party's positions of law and order, patriotism and personal responsibility. The fact that most GOP politicians rank high in "character" has added to the esteem with which I have held my party. However, my love affair with the GOP suffered a severe jolt on June 4 when Republican delegates in the great state of Virginia saw fit to nominate Oliver North for a seat in the United States Senate.
