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!
I'll be voting for Marshall on Tuesday and will attend the convention on the 16th.
