News Round Up from Across Virginia (Real and Fake)


There is a lot of news coverage of our Democratic candidates in today’s papers across the Commonwealth. Here’s a sample:

The Martinsville Bulletin describes Friday’s Henry County Democratic rally featuring Sen. Joe Biden in “Biden calls for change, unity at spirited rally”.

The Newport News endorsed Mark Warner for Senate. So did the Bristol Herald Courier. which has a companion analysis piece looking at the state of the Presidential race in the Commonwealth.

The Danville Register Bee reports that former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle will speak in Danville on Monday and Tom Perriello will debate Rep. Virgil Goode on Tuesday night. The Register Bee also has an editorial questioning the effectiveness of Rep. Goode.

The Winchester Star describes Friday’s debate between Democrat Judy Feder, Rep. Frank Wolf and independent Neeraj C. Nigam.

The Richmond Times Dispatch has details on Sen. Obama’s upcoming visits to Norfolk and Harrisonburg on Tuesday.

And GOP Rep Tom Davis tells MSNBC (on Friday) that “Virginia is still in play at the Presidential level.” Not if I have anything to do with it Tom!
