It will take more than the handful of competitive primaries to draw Virginia voters to the polls in August's dog days to decide the few unresolved nominees for November's legislative races.
A total of 20 primaries will be on ballots in selected districts on Aug. 23 - 10 each House contests and Senate contests. And most of them are Republican. Only two incumbents - one senator and one delegate - face primaries.
Senate primaries command the most attention.
Fired former state GOP Chairman Jeff Frederick is trying a comeback in Senate District 36 against "Tito The Builder" Munoz, who gained fleeting fame as a McCain backer in the 2008 presidential race.
Former Republican Del. Dick Black is also trying a comeback against two opponents in the Senate District 13 primary.
