Virginia GOP Picks Hard-Right Senate Candidate

Corey Stewart (R) won the Republican nomination to face Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) in November after fighting off two challengers, the Washington Post reports.

“Stewart, who nearly won the GOP nomination for Virginia governor last year, has gained notoriety for his embrace of the Confederate flag, hard line against illegal immigrants and past association with men who consider themselves white nationalists.”

“He has promised a ‘vicious’ campaign against Kaine, who is popular in the state and is seeking a second term.”
