Virginia House Bill to Move Presidential Primary on Cusp of Tuesday Vote

It looks like the Virginia legislature put in some time over the weekend to beat the Tuesday cross-over deadline -- when bills must be finished in one chamber to be considered in the opposite chamber. The House of Delegates is on pace to finish up work on HB 1843 -- the bill to move the commonwealth's presidential primary from the second Tuesday in February to the first Tuesday in March -- with an up or down vote tomorrow after Sunday's first constitutional reading and the second reading today.

The bill is now engrossed as a substitute and will more than likely beat tomorrow's deadline with a vote to send it to the Senate.
