See below for some reactions to the VA GOP’s and Youngkin campaign’s latest “PR stunt” – a “hail Mary” attempt to force Terry McAuliffe off the ballot, which obviously isn’t going to happen, just coincidentally on the same day that a high-quality poll by AARP and CNU’s Wason Center found Trumpkin…er, Youngkin down 50%-41% to McAuliffe. Pathetic.

  • “Today, Terry McAuliffe is up 9 points in credible polls and Trumpkin throws a tantrum”
  • “His campaign clearly sat on this to get a press hit”
  • “This nothing more than a desperate Trumpian move by the Virginia GOP to deprive voters of a choice in this election because Terry is consistently leading in the polls.”
  • “I’ve seen a lot of dumb lawsuits by the GOP. This is a really dumb lawsuit. I would note that not a single law firm is on these pleadings. Not even the Kraken lawyers” are ‘on these pleadings.'”
  • “Total nonsense”
  • “It’s not a good look when you have a set of polls that say you’re behind and now you say [McAuliffe] didn’t file the paperwork properly for the Democratic primary so disqualify him…You should win the election fair and square with the electorate
  • The violation is harmless & the remedy sought — removing McAuliffe from the general election ballot…is extreme…would scramble a lot of plans & frustrate a lot of voters, all in service of a minor rule (so minor that no one noticed the error earlier)”
