A Virginia Republican lawmaker who voted to expand Medicaid lost his seat to a primary challenger.
Del. Bob Thomas lost to Paul Milde Tuesday in a GOP primary.
Thomas is one of three Republican lawmakers who voted for Medicaid expansion last year and faced a nomination battle this year. Milde blasted Thomas for that vote.
Thomas was heavily funded by top GOP House lawmakers.
The Fredericksburg-area seat is expected to be heavily contested during the November election and could help determine if Republicans can maintain their slim majority in the House of Delegates.
