Virginia Republicans Must Swear Allegiance To GOP To Vote In Primary
This is SO telling.
RICHMOND, Va. – Voters in Virginia’s Feb. 12 Republican presidential primary will have to sign an oath swearing loyalty to the eventual GOP ticket.
The State Board of Elections on Monday approved a state Republican Party request that all who apply for a GOP primary ballot first vow in writing to vote for the Republican presidential nominee next fall.
Want to know why?
Voters in Virginia do not register by party. Since the mid-90s, the state’s Republicans have fretted that Democrats might meddle in their primaries, which are open to all registered voters.
Yeah, I’m sure Democrats will be streaming to the polls to vote for Republicans instead of Democrats. Okay.
