Seven Virginia House Candidates Fail to Make Primary Ballot
Yesterday, the Virginia Board of Elections kicked seven candidates running for the Virginia House of Delegates off of the ballot for the June primaries. These candidates failed to get efficient documentation in on time.
Sarah Deitz (D) - HD-14 [Safe Republican]
Randall Wolf (D) - HD-20 [Safe Republican]
Matt Rogers (D) - HD-47 [Safe Democratic]
Caitlin Coakley (D) - HD-65 [Safe Republican]
Michael Jones (D) - HD-69 [Safe Democratic]
Julie Perry (R) - HD-86 [Safe Democratic]
Jordan Gray (R) - HD-93 [Likely Democratic]
Thankfully for five of these candidates, they can still be nominated by an alternative method chosen by local party officials, such as a firehouse primary, by June 1st. The only two candidates whose candidacies are now over are Michael Jones of HD-69, who was trying to primary incumbent Democrat Betsy Carr, and Matt Rogers of HD-47, who was trying to primary incumbent Democrat Patrick Hope.
A win for the House Democratic caucus for sure, as this saves resources they would have had to spend in these two primaries.
