Suppose They Had A Primary And No One Came?

It looks that way today in Arlington for the Republican primary to challenge Jim Moran in November. We haven't seen more than one car today in the nearly 20 parking spaces wastefully set aside at our local precinct.

Why couldn't the five Republicans here in the County have just had a convention, in a phone booth?

I'm shocked that there are enough Republicans in Arlington to even justify a primary. Shoot, I figured the one that was left would've kinda automatically become the official candidate to challenge Moran or something!

Speaking of primaries, as you are a native South Carolinian, what is your take on the conspiracy theories swirling around the recent Democratic primary there? Did one or more Republicans pay for Greene to run, did large numbers of Republicans vote in the Democratic primary, or did large numbers of Democratic voters simply vote for the first name on the ballot?

I talked to my father about it, and he says so far there's no evidence of some conspiracy or fraud. He's willing to believe Greene.
For my part, I've seen the dirty politics in SC, and it wouldn't surprise me a bit if something nefarious was up.
But hey, don't you think the Nikki Haley sex scandal is more fun!
