See below for an interesting Twitter thread from Darren Samuelsohn of Insider.com. A few highlights include:

  • “Trump aides say there’s a reason he is staying away from Virginia, where Biden won by double digits. He mainly doesn’t want to get tagged a loser if his pick gets clobbered this fall by Democrats.”
  • “Still, Trump’s absence is making for significant chaos as Virginia Rs get ready to go to the polls Sat to pick from a wide-open gubernatorial field that includes a woman who bills herself as ‘Trump in heels,’ & an establishment player backed by Sarah Huckabee Sanders.”
  • Virginia’s current MAGA-size endorsement hole also offers a poignant look into a post-Trump party that is shaping up to be bonkers, Virginia Republicans tell @thisisinsider
  • “GOP operatives used various phrases like ‘frustration,’ ‘confusion,’ and ‘uncertainty’ when Insider asked about the procedures in place headed into Virginia’s voting…’Anybody who tells you they know what is happening is full of s—‘.”
  • “November’s general-election winner is expected to give a useful glimpse into the mood of voters as Biden and Democrats defend their narrow House and Senate majorities in 2022.”
