Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, Pat Mullins, made the following announcement today:
“I’m very pleased to let you know that the Republican Party of Virginia has informed the State Board of Elections that the “loyalty oath” will be rescinded.
We informally polled the GOP State Central Committee over the past week and there was an overwhelming and near unanimous feeling that we should rescind the loyalty oath.
The Executive Committee of RPV voted last night unanimously to have me inform the State Board of Elections, that having heard from nearly all members of the GOP State Central Committee, that we would have an overwhelming majority vote to rescind the “loyalty oath”.
We will formally approve this on Saturday.”
