Badly Divided Loudoun GOP Barely Reelects…THIS GUY as Its Chair, Demonstrating Yet Again How Off-the-F’ing-Deep-End the Trumpified/MAGA GOP(Q) Has Gone.

This guy attacked Women's History Month and asked, “Do you think the sea level would lower, if we just took all the boats out of the water?”

Yesterday, the Loudoun GOP held an election for chair — and it was as crazy and nasty as you’d expect (according to former Trump official Nick Minock, who now works as a “journalist” at right-wing-propaganda Sinclair’s WJLATV7, tweeted, “A few folks described the race to me as “bare knuckle” “off the rails” and filled with ‘personal attacks'” – such as the incumbent Chair, Scott Pio, accusing his opponent, Paul Lott, of “abusing his wife and Children in 2024”). In the end, incumbent Chair Pio (see below for more about him) barely held off a challenge from Lott (who Del. Rip Sullivan, in his “Flip-and-Defend-a-District-Friday,” described as “focused on Critical Race Theory, banning books, attacking transgender students…taking away a woman’s right to choose…a right-wing extremist”; Lott also claims that transgender “ideology” is “contrary to human history, biology, and commonsense”) – by 37 votes out of 1,159 cast, in a highly divided party (note: the former VA GOP Chair hates Pio, as you can see from his tweets, below).

For more on Pio – including his bizarre question, “Do you think the sea level would lower, if we just took all the boats out of the water?”, see below. And remember, this isn’t an aberration; sad to say, but THIS is the Trumpified, MAGA, extremist, off-the-deep-end, definitely-not-your-parents’-or-grandparents’-Republican-Party.

John Whitbeck, from Loudoun County, is the former chair (from 2015 to 2018) of the Virginia GOP.
