Vicious Virginia Republican Infighting Continues in HD-97. Is Tomorrow’s “Firehouse Primary” Still On? Is It Legitimate? Does Anyone Know?

Crazy times in the crazy Virginia Republican Party. Here’s the latest lunacy from the 97th House of Delegates district. For some background on this, see No “Peace” for Virginia Republicans…at Least Not in HD97 Between Del. Chris Peace and Scott Wyatt (Wyatt claims he’s the nominee; Peace says Wyatt is “misleading voters”) and Where the Heck Do Things Stand With the HD97 Republican Nomination Fiasco? (Del. Chris Peace (R) and His Challenger, Scott Wyatt (R), Trade Barbs, Accusations, Narratives About Who Is the Nominee). Also see this take from the pro-Peace side of things: Attempt to Cancel HD97 Voting Fails; Why Saturday’s Canvass is Still On and this from the pro-Wyatt side. So…who the heck knows at this point, I guess, but maybe we’ll find out tomorrow? Or not? Meanwhile, as Democrats and progressives, I’d recommend popping up some popcorn and enjoying the show, as various right-wing factions within the Virginia GOP rip each other apart.
