13450259, the gop base is batshit crazy. so that reflects in their candidates.|

the only reason they got youngkin as a candidate in va is because the party eliminated normal primaries (imagine if dems did that) and instead uses some convoluted nomination convention thing with about 30 locations for the entire state and a bunch of ranked/weighted machinations with their voting. basically tipping the scale toward more moderate candidates and away from the type of extreme candidates their base in va supports.
