The 16th VA Senate Democratic primary race took an interesting turn with the announcement that latecomers to the race, Joe Morrissey and Derik Jones didn’t collect the required number of valid signatures to run as Democrats in the Democratic Primary on June 9.
The !6th has only a small footprint in Prince George County. Courts is the only precinct totally in the 16th, while there are portions of Jefferson Park and Rives precincts included.
There is more behind this story from a local perspective, but there are so many threats of legal suit, that we will leave that back story out of this post to protect the innocent.

See all at the PG Dems meeting on Thursday, April 2 at the Prince George Social Services (Human Services) Building. You may want to take notes. Note meeting begins at 5:30 p.m.
