More Virginia incumbents find challengers from within own party

Bristol's Senator Wampler is not among the group that will face challenges from within the Republican Party, as in some places scores are still being settled from the last budget session of the Gilmore administration during which the party split on implementation of the elimination of the car tax, according to this report in the Richmond paper. The Washington Post has this story on the primary challenge to Sen. Chichester, another Republican who defied Governor Gilmore on the car tax, and quotes Chichester as saying of his opponent, "The guy is a goofball."
