We’ve been talking about his moment since November of last year–lots of talk about how we’re going to take back our government from the Trumpettes and their ilk.
Now the time has come, and it starts with the Virginia primary election next Tuesday, June 13.
This is the first election leading up to the main event in 2018, when every single seat in the Virginia House is up for grabs, as is the Governor’s and Lieutenant Governor’s seats.
Next Tuesday, voters will decide some of the Democratic candidates who will go up against their GOP opponents in 2018. The bad news is that primaries held in off-election years are poorly attended. In fact, the last time this odd-year primary was held in Virginia, only 315,000 voters turned out.
