WTF Virginia? Republican Party requiring loyalty oath in presidential primary
Del. Robert G. Marshall, R-Prince William, is criticizing the state Republican Party for requiring a loyalty oath in Virginia's March 6 presidential primary. Anyone who wishes to vote in the primary must sign a form pledging to support the party's presidential nominee.

The pledge is unenforceable. No one knows whom a voter casts a ballot for in the general election.

Anyone who wants to vote must sign a form at the polling place pledging to support the eventual Republican nominee for president. Anyone who refuses to sign the pledge will be barred from voting.

Re: WTF Virginia? Republican Party requiring loyalty oath in presidential primary
Meanwhile, Virginia's presidential primary ballot currently only includes two candidates -- Ron Paul and Mitt Romney. The rest did not meet the state's signature requirement, though the other candidates are challenging their exclusion in court.

I'm sure it's about this...and they want to change the amount of required sigs, too. Wow! I mean Ron Paul got his required sigs...

The once legitimate republican party has allowed itself to be taken over by their raging lunatic fringe. If the American public permits more of them to assume office, they will make these insane 'pledges' enforceable by law and people will be jailed for refusing to become their sheep.

This is sheer insanity.

Re: WTF Virginia? Republican Party requiring loyalty oath in presidential primary
wtf I thought maybe they were requiring the candidate to swear a loyalty oath, to this country and our Constitution, because that would be a good thing.
This, though, is a mega-load of unAmerican bsflag
They are basically saying that they are going to nominate someone other than the candidate who gets the most votes. Hmmm, who are they scared of ?

So are they going to select their own candidate, not necessarily the one that "won" the primary or are they worried about Dems voting in this primary to skew the results? Or something else entirely? blink

Sounds like an ego trip for some party hack that needs to go OR a pretty cleverly placed story. If true, the VA GOP should immediately refute or face massive defections.

Re: WTF Virginia? Republican Party requiring loyalty oath in presidential primary
A bit extreme...yes. However, in some states, you do not have to be a registered democrat or republican to vote in their primaries or even be registered ahead of time.

I recall one eastern state, might have been New Jersey or Connecticut, where you didn't even have to be a resident just say that you intended to be a resident sometime soon and you could vote. Busloads of people from New York were bused in to vote for Hillary Clinton in the last set of primaries.

I don't think a loyalty oath is needed but certainly they could require that you be registered in the party you want to vote in for a primary and that is the only ballot you get.

Re: WTF Virginia? Republican Party requiring loyalty oath in presidential primary
While the signature requirement has been law for awhile, this new 'loyalty' oath was just voted in. It seem they are freaked out about VA being an 'open' primary state and with Dr. Paul pulling support from across the spectrum (left, independent, right) they fear a massive turn out in his favor.

Oh, and they despise the idea of folks writing in Paul if he fails to win the nomination....

examples of pledge levels

Virginia, Texas Delegates that result from the primary are require to pledge loyalty to vote for the selected candidates as apportioned

Colorado, Wyoming does not require a pledge of loyalty however should one be volunteered it is binding.

Michigan is an unpledged apportioned state, some delegates are explicitly required not to be pledged.

South Carolina is a winner takes all pledged state
