Three Floydians filed to seek one of our county’s two Bernie Sanders spots at the state and 9th District stage of selecting Virginia’s delegates to the Democratic National Convention. They are Rima Forrest, Adam Lake, and Tara Orlando. Thus our weekend caucus will let Sanders supporters choose two. All who filed on time to participate in this online vote will get an email on Friday explaining their next step.
Four people filed to seek our one Joe Biden spot, but some 9th District localities had fewer contenders than their allotted seats. Thus all four — Dean and Kim Chiapetto, Meredith Dean, and Dolly Moore — get to participate in a district on May 2 and the state one on June 20. Both will be virtual events, for the safety of all participants.
