VCAP: "Don't Vote Tuesday!" UPDATED
This just in from VCAP (via email):
Don't vote Tuesday!
In 2004, the Virginia Republican State Central Committee passed a new party rule that states you may be barred from participating in future Republican conventions, mass meetings, and primaries if you have voted in a Democratic primary.
Please ensure your right to elect conservative Republican candidates in the 2007 Republican nomination process by NOT voting in the Democratic primary on Tuesday.
Not sure if this will become entangled in this.
UPDATED: Around 6:00 p.m. this afternoon VCAP sent out the below email with the subject "Clarification for vote tomorrow":
Point of Clarification.
In 2004, the Virginia Republican State Central Committee passed a new party rule that states you could be barred from participating in future Republican conventions, mass meetings, and primaries if you have previously voted in a Democratic primary.
VCAP is a non-partisan PAC that supports fiscally and socially conservative candidates. We have no affiliation with the Republican Party of Virginia or decisions made by the State Central Committee. We merely wanted to pass along information we had learned of regarding changes to the Republican Party Plan and how it may affect your ability to vote in future Republican primary elections. We are recommending people reference the following blogs on Baconâ€™s Rebellion to better understand why State Central passed this amendment to the Party Plan in the first place:
You can clearly vote in whichever elections you choose. VCAP is not trying to suppress your vote. Rather, we wanted to share information with you that we had learned and how it could impact your ability to participate in future Republican primaries.
I hope this makes sense. Sorry for any confusion we may have caused.
