In congressional district-level conventions held throughout the state, pro-convention candidates gained seats on the state central committee with support from tea party activists and backers of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul. Cuccinelli endorsed many of the winners, but Bolling was not as active in the committee elections.
I know all of that, I read the same article as your second paragraph comes from.
I agree it was premature, but it was done and candidates have been operating under the impression there would be a primary is all I’m saying.
I understand all the arguments both pro and con on both sides. And even after 9 years, I’m still uncomfortable with Virginia’s policy of open primaries. OTOH, convention politics left me with a seriously bad taste in my mouth after all my years involved in the GOP of Delaware. I know, I know, VA is not DE (Thank the Good Lord,) but living on the Eastern Shore we kind of get left out. Many of us, for various reasons can’t come to Richmond........
My preference is Cuccinelli and I have no intentions of arguing against them if on Friday they opt for a convention - I was just expressing an opinion.
BTW I’m voting for Jamie Radtke tomorrow!
