Anthony Bedell, chairman of the Fairfax County Republicans, agreed. "Turnout will be very low," he predicted. Because President George W. Bush (R) went unchallenged in 2004, the last comparable GOP presidential primary race to this year's was in 2000 when Vice President Al Gore went unchallenged for the Democrats. Five Republican candidates, including Bush and John …
