Does the DPVA know this???


    Here’s a couple of paragraphs from a Sunday, 3 July, WashPost story describing the upcoming Virginia General Assembly primaries:…

    Already, Republicans have far outpaced Democrats in recruiting. Republicans have candidates running in 108 of the state’s 140 General Assembly districts – compared with just 75 for the Democrats, according to the Virginia Public Access Project, a nonpartisan tracker of money in politics.

    In the Senate, Democrats have candidates in the 24 districts where they hold the seat or where it is up for grabs, including the two newly added districts. They have not yet fielded candidates in any of the seats where a GOP incumbent is running. Republican have candidates in 36 districts, 25 of them already certified as nominees

    Do you suppose the DPVA knows just how far behind we are in fielding candidates?

    Does the DPVA Chairman know?

    More important, do they care?  Are they doing anything about it?

    Guess not.
