A lawyer from Stafford County, Mr. Rashid had 52.87 percent of the district-wide vote with 243 of 245 precincts reporting as of Wednesday morning.

FT? Fauquier Times? This is FauquierNow.

What a biased headline: "Fauquier helps Gade win GOP Senate nomination ". Didn't Fauquier help Webb win Democratic 5th CD Nomination? What gives? Even if each candidate got only one vote out of Fauquier, it would help their victory on the statewide/districtwide level.

subtle, institutional racism.
FairandBalanced · June 24, 2020 at 6:59 pm
who is gade? he has no chance against Senator Warner. why does the FT choose that headline when EVERYONE knows the big news is Cameron Webb won the Democrat nomination for the US Congressional race in CD5! Congratulations future Congressman Webb. Perhaps by the time Juneteenth comes around the FT will lift the news to the proletariat about future Congressman Webb's historic election win! i'm calling the FT out as racist.

Your reading comprehension fails miserably.
Rover 530 · June 24, 2020 at 12:18 pm
This is nonsense. If you are tried and then imprisoned, you have received due process.

What's this all got to do with an article reporting on political primaries?
AmericanPatriot · June 24, 2020 at 11:38 am
Democrats are hardly 'democratic'.

Note the democrats calling for police to be tried and imprisoned without due process.

The GOP today bolsters lower charges, free-market private enterprise, solid national protection, weapon rights, deregulation, the death penalty, and limitations on trade guilds; it contradicts premature birth. When I was reading the best essay writing service uk reviews then I read this information so I know about it.
