Lohr pulling ahead in the 26th

All signs in the 26th seems to be pointing more and more towards a victory for Matt Lohr. The opinion page of the Daily News-Record is chock full of Lohr supporters touting his many attributes. Most importantly, the people of the 26th District seem to realize that Matt Lohr views are more in line with those of the majority of residents in that district and that, as a result, Lohr will do a better job of representing them in Richmond. Lowell Fulk is just another Creigh Deeds, someone who talks like the Valley, but votes like Charlottesville.

Not Larry Sabato seems to agree, as he recently moved the race from a 'tossup' to 'Leans Republican.' NLS notes what others have already observed emanating from the Fulk camp, the smell of desperation.

The AFP reviews Monday's debate between Lohr and Fulk, focusing on Fulk's weak attempts to avoid the gay marriage question. Fulk says a Constitutional Amendment protecting marriage is "a waste of time," but Lohr rightly points out that it will be brought to the floor for a vote in the next session and Fulk has still failed to answer whether he would support it or not. And we all know what that means.

Fulk and his supporters have tried their darndest to keep his views out of this campaign, but in the long run, the residents of the Valley appear to be coming home to the candidate who will vote like they would in Richmond.
