Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

A Few Hours to Go

By most accounts, it looks like the turnout should be pretty similar to the 2005 dem primary.
Leslie Byrne won that primary and she endorsed Webb. Even so, the people who voted for her showed they wanted the person they agreed with; not the most likely candidate to win.

Heres the question, with most of today's voters being the same ones as 2005; which course will they take? Will they vote for the Leslie Byrne type candidate Harris Miller or for the Leslie Byrne endorsed candidate Jim Webb?

    Dude, they all endorsed Webb: Leslie, Chap, Puckett, and Baskerville.

    So you can't go by endorsements, or this would be a breeze for Webb.

    Your Lt Gov primary was more ideological, but ours was (and is) personality-driven. Totally different dynamics.

    Maybe so Adam, but most everyone voting was doing it based on who they wanted vs. who they thought could win.
    You guys probably have that more than us (a former GOPer vs dem activist?, come on).
