Did you know Virginia is an open primary state? Yup, it is - you can vote in anybody's primary you want.

That means that since the Republican party is handling their state office party candidate nominations this year by convention, every registered voter in Virginia might as well crash the Democratic party primary on June 9th!

. . .

A vote for Moran is therefore the best strategic vote for gun owners for two reasons. First, because a Moran vote is more likely to defeat McAuliffe than a vote for Deeds. And second, a vote for Moran sends traditionally pro-gun politicians like Deeds a signal that compromising on gun rights before they run for state office will not be tolerated.

So where will you party on June 9th?
