We’ve been hearing for years now that despite not having party registration in Virginia, members of one party or the other have never really been able to make mischief for the loyal opposition in a primary.
Well, a new PPP poll showing that the three Dem. Gov. candidates are all essentially tied and will likely face low turnout in next week’s primary may provide the perfect opportunity for those so inclined to meddle in the process.
With a week to go until the Democratic primary for Governor in Virginia the state of the race is as muddled as ever, with all three candidates within five points of each other. Creigh Deeds has a slight lead with 27%, followed by Terry McAuliffe at 24%, and Brian Moran at 22%. All three candidates are within each other’s margins of error and if the election was today any of the trio could plausibly finish first or last.
We’ve already seen gun owners urged to “crash the party” and vote for Brian “Don’t Call Me Jim” Moran. Will others also engage in such acts of mischief? We’ll find out next week!
