Virginia Fifth District Race - #2352 - VIDEO: Perriello Supporters Say "Socialism is Cool!"


Perriello Supporters Say "Socialism is Cool!" - Great video from Ben Marchi from Americans for Prosperity from last nights Obama/Periello rally on the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville. Seems Obama and Periello supporters think Socialism is Cool!


Gop Eyes Sweep of Close Virginia House Races - Townhall - A short while ago, I received a phone call from a reliable source who's very plugged-in with Virginia Republicans. He told me he's just seen private polling data from all four competitive House races in the state that should encourage conservatives. He said the numbers show each of the four Republican candidates relatively well-positioned to win, suggesting that an Old Dominion State sweep is attainable. The four contests he mentioned areVA-02: Incumbent Democrat Glenn Nye vs. Republican Scott Rigell. My source says the new data he's seen shows Rigell in command with a double-digit lead. That's a much more comfortable margin than the latest independent polls have demonstrated.  VA-05: Incumbent Democrat Tom Perriello vs. Republican Robert Hurt. The insider says although this race isn't quite as out of reach as it once appeared, Hurt maintains a solid lead in the high single digits. Politico notes that Democrats and Dem-affiliated groups have pulled out all the stops to save Perriello.  VA-09: Longtime incumbent Democrat Rick Boucher vs. Republican Morgan Griffith. It comes as no surprise that the new data indicates this is the closest race of the four. Still, Griffith has surged slightly ahead -- by the thinnest of margins. This seems to confirm the final numbers from Survey USA.  VA-11: Incumbent Democrat Gerry Connolly vs. Republican Keith Fimian. My source says Fimian has jumped in front of Connolly by a modest margin -- just slightly larger than Griffith's microscopic lead in the 9th District. The DCCC apparently agrees that Connolly is in trouble: They're spending an astonishing $1 Million on this race in the final week of the campaign alone.  Article contributed by Steve Peters.


Obama Urges Virginians to Reelect Freshman Perriello - Washington Post - CHARLOTTESVILLE - President Obama made his first campaign stop this fall on behalf of an individual House member Friday night, a direct appeal to young voters and African Americans in this college town to cast their ballots for freshman Rep. Tom Perriello........ 
 Perriello's rival, state Sen. Robert Hurt, has accused the congressman of being in lockstep with Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi by voting for their signature issues - health-care reform, emissions limits and government bailouts that he said could cost the region 11,000 jobs. "I think the White House, the president, recognizes that his favorite congressman is in trouble and he's coming down to lend a hand in an effort to energize a base that heretofore has not been energized,'' Hurt told reporters earlier Friday. "It's clearly payback for being a loyal foot soldier for the Pelosi-Obama agenda."
