The party's governing body has voted by acclamation to no longer require a Statement of Affiliation to vote in the March 1 GOP presidential primaryToo bad, I was really enjoying this (e.g., that shouting match between right-wingnut David Ramadan and Trumpista John Fredericks is classic!) and hoping to see a bunch of pissed-off Trump supporters storming out of the polls here in Virginia on March 1. :)
The Republican Party of Virginia’s State Central Committee (“SCC”), meeting in Richmond, today voted to remove the requirement it had adopted in September 2015 to require voters in its March 1 presidential primary to sign a statement indicating they are Republican.
The move comes after outcry from various quarters of the party, notably from Donald Trump, who excoriated the party for what he alleged was a move designed to exclude voters sympathetic to his candidacy. However, this does not seem to have made any impact of the SCC’s decision.
