A Swath of Editorials from The Washington Post

So I was away this weekend taking a break from politics and school and the Washington Post just exploded with news on VA Delegate races...

45th District

This is an open race in a staunchly Democratic (re: No Chance Republicans) district. There are SIX candidates and they are all going for blood. Even though the Post has endorsed James Lay, Libby Garvey and David Englin are the front runners in my opinion. Stay tuned...

67th District

This district is very Republican. So Republican that the Anti-tax wing of the Republican party is running a candidate to the right of the incumbent Gary Reese. Chris Craddock, a political newbie, is running a plank of tax reform saying that Reese broke his pledge as a Republican to not raise taxes. This one will come down to the wire.
