Virginia Primary: Republicans Veer Right

Latest News

WASHINGTON — In two crucial swing districts, Republican primary voters nominated the party’s most extreme candidates, setting them up to lose control of both General Assembly chambers this November.


“The Party of Trump has taken control of Virginia’s GOP and will cost commonwealth Republicans control of the General Assembly this November,” said Jessica Post, executive director of the DLCC. “Republicans hold just a two-seat margin in each chamber. Paul Milde, Geary Higgins, and the extreme right wing of the Trump’s party just lost the GOP control of the General Assembly tonight.”
