ICYMI – While Virginians were enjoying barbecues and parades over the holiday week, commonwealth Republicans were in meltdown mode over new extremist comments made by three of their most vulnerable senators.
WASHINGTON -- Virginia Republicans, scrambling to defend their last vestiges of power in the Commonwealth, failed to recruit candidates for dozens of seats in this November's General Assembly elections.
"Virginia Republicans aren't just playing defense -- they're in full retreat," said Jessica Post, executive director of the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee. "Republicans' dismal recruitment numbers are symbolic of the party's steep decline in Virginia. The GOP is out of touch on health care, voting rights, choice -- and it's evident in their lack of candidates."
