McKelvey on Hurt: “I refuse to support him, he’s not gonna represent me.”


    Jim McKelvey finished second to Robert Hurt on Tuesday in the 5th CD Republican primary, winning 26% of the vote. Obviously, Hurt will need the (enthusiastic) support of McKelvey and his supporters come November if he hopes to defeat Rep. Tom Perriello. But, based on this video, that doesn’t look likely. Such a shame.

    UPDATE: McKelvey has now launched a PAC, but remains “mum” on whether or not he’ll support Hurt.
