Should the SCC rescind the “Statement of Affiliation” on Republican Primary ballots? As we reported here, there are some major problems with the loyalty pledge on the primary ballot, problems that could result in our Virginia delegation being challenged at the National Convention in July. If you opposed the loyalty pledge/statement of affiliation on the ballot, or even if you support it, let your representatives on the State Central Committee know your feelings prior to their next meeting in January. Contact information for all members of the State Central Committee members is here. Please send an email to your representatives so we can put this mess behind us and so our Virginia delegates will be able to participate at the National Convention in July.
Contact Information for State Central Committee

Nice graphic. How about we figure out which State Centrals voted for the dumbass primary and demand that they retract that vote as well. AND, I’d like to see some of them with enough backbone to call out our ineligible nominees.
I think we can get that information. It was a close vote for the primary, all the usual establishment suspects, and a few of the conservatives crossed over to join them. I’d love to ask them “How’s that workin’ for ya”?
I think the primary is such a stupid idea that forced the RPV to transcend that with the milquetoast ‘Statement.’ Primary people don’t care, they’re more interested in disenfranchising conservative strengths.
Which nominees are ineligible?
Cruz and Rubio of the current. Jindal. Don’t worry, ¡Yeb! et al will use it around convention time and if they’re unsuccessful, Alan Grayson will have at it, and then the media firestorm ending with our fine Supremes giving it to the dems.
The graphic I ‘borrowed’ from Rollin Reisinger because I too thought it was a great graphic. It seems the establishment and the grassroots are somewhat united on this subject.
Establishment got their Primary, Trump gets a stick in the eye, and non-Republicans get to choose VA nominee, grassroots get screwed, business as usual.
Darn right, the SCC should rescind the loyalty oath! Thanks for the link to the SCC members’ emails. All of us Virginia Republicans should make our voices heard.
Guess the RPV can call an emergency Executive Committee meeting anytime. Or they could wait for their upcoming SCC meeting, which may be soon.
But when EXACTLY IS the next SCC meeting? It’s in January, correct? Isn’t there a minimum 21 day prior notice requirement in the SPP for their SCC meeting calls? Too bad the next meeting info is not listed anywhere on the RPV’s website – virginia.gop . One would get the impression, the SCC simply does NOT want the rank and file to know such things! A political state party should keep their website current. Even if all the details are not known, that’s still no excuse for the complete lack of information – the word “tentative” works just fine.
Let’s have a lot more #transparency, please RVP.
Steve Albertson – you are on the SCC; can you please provide details on the next SCC meeting?
Errr, have you been to any of these meetings — talk about your Republican suppression activities. No need to mob rush the meetings when we can stalk and harass the members from our pajamas.
Also, if you’re in the Commonwealth of Virginia, you can ask your unit chair, officers, or even directly the SCC members on this blog. It’s not like they’re Congressmen hiding from constituents.
By the way, it’s totally swell and awesome to see the collective Republican wisdom up, active, and outraged against our SCC/RPV for having the bold uncalled-for audacity to demand that a Republican admit to being a Republican. Oh the humanity!
And we wonder why we can’t seem to be a winning party.
Most of us don’t think loyalty oaths will grow the party and put us in the winner category.
We’ve had such great results with the ‘open tent’ party. Pandering our nominating process to non-Republicans doesn’t work on the left or right — Not to grow the party, nor to let us win.
I don’t think a call has gone out for the next SCC meeting. I thought only a 10 day notice was required but I could be wrong. In early December we were told SCC would have a meeting in January. Mark Berg’s appeal is expected to be on the agenda and I would expect this subject to also now be on the agenda. .
