Md., Va. Delegates Go to the Circus

ST. PAUL -- Dominion Resources, the energy company, treated the Virginia and Maryland delegations to a lunch-time circus performance today that included acrobatics and fire juggling.

The event was put on by Circus Juventas, a non-profit organization in St. Paul that trains children in performance art to inspire artistry and self-confidence. Many members of the audience reacted with "oohs" and "ahhs" when watching the intricate acts that included ropes, swings and fire.

Chuck Gast, second vice chairman of the Maryland Republican Party, said the event was a great chance to meet people from other states.

Dominion hosted the event for the Maryland, Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania delegations. A similar event was held Sunday for the West Virginia delegates.
