Either click on main screen or use these links.  Part 2 ..........,  Part 3..........  Article by WSLS 10 -  The first face-to-face meeting of Democratic Rep. Tom Perriello and Republican challenger Robert Hurt injected two new elements into the 5th District congressional race Wednesday.  Perriello said he thinks “everything should be on the table” to accomplish the goal of a balanced federal budget. The candidates also disagreed on whether Social Security recipients should get a cost of living increase.  After their joint appearance on WSLS-TV 10 in Roanoke, Perriello said a tax increase shouldn’t be automatically ruled out if the president’s budget-study commission were to recommend one.  “I’m going to be totally honest with you, I don’t think a tax increase makes sense right now,” Perriello added.  Hurt, a state senator from Chatham, said he was flatly opposed to tax increases.  Perriello also said during the TV appearance that retired people should receive a cost-of-living increase in Social Security benefits.  Hurt said the government was correct in not raising those benefits this year, for the second year in a row.  Read more.......

SEIU About to Drop 250,000 into 5th District Ads - Hurt Campaign -The hat is about to drop.With less than 3 weeks until Election Day, the SEIU has purchased over $250,000 of television space in the 5th district. In other words, $250,000 worth of TV ads - which is a whole lot in this area - will air over the next 10 days attacking Robert.  Why? Because the union bosses know Perriello is in serious danger of losing his seat. And that means losing a key advocate for their far-left, job killing agenda.  We cannot allow big labor bosses and liberals from across the country to take this election. So we need your help to match the SEIU's ad buy and get the truth about Congressman Perriello on the airwaves in the 5th district.  We hope we can count on you to help match the SEIU's ad buy and get on television with ads highlighting the truth Congressman Perriello's job killing agenda. Please follow this link right away to make the most generous contribution you can afford.  Thank you in advance for your support.
