Eric Herr, who is Republican chairman of the 1st Congressional District, posted a threat to the GOP Wednesday on Facebook:

“If ‘Mitt’ or ‘Jeb’ is the nominee, I PROMISE to lead the fight for a VIABLE third Party in Virginia.”

Herr most recently had entered his name for the position of chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia until he bowed out in December. Reactions on Facebook were varied including this:

What the heck kind of names are ‘Jeb’ and ‘Mitt’? Of course I am the person who insisted America would never elect a President named Barack Hussein Obama!

To which another responded:

Recipe for GOP marginalization: 1) Focus on the name of the candidate, not the philosophies nor the principles of same; 2) Belittle ones own nominees to inflict sufficient harm our candidate during the general election; 3) Most importantly, waste time, talent, energy, imagination and opportunity by attacking the personality of our opponent in lieu of exposing the dangerously stupid ideology of our opponent. Voila! Dems dominate forever.
