By Jonathan LucciFrederick County ReportSummers in a presidential election year are usually thought o as a quietperiod in between the civil wars o primaries and the time ater LaborDay when most voters truly ocusin on the choices or the all. Tissummer, in our world o 24 hournews coverage and non-stop poll-ing, neither Governor Romney norPresident Obama have taken mucho a break. Still, with the partys’nominating conventions still severalweeks o and with plenty o time toanalyze the inevitable showdown atthe national level, it is a good time totake a look at the races that will ap-pear a little arther down the ballothere in northwestern Virginia.Te Senate race between ormergovernor im Kaine and ormer USsenator George Allen continues to bealmost impossible to predict, as thenumbers now look almost identicalto the numbers as they existed sixmonths ago. A brand new CBS/New York imes/Quinnipiac survey putsDemocrat Kaine ahead by 2 pointsover Allen with a 48 to 46 mar-gin. Te same poll ound PresidentObama leading Governor Romney 49to 45. Ater barrages by presidentialcampaigns, both Senate campaigns,both national parties and a myriad o outside groups the race is still dead-locked. Tis reality, at both the sen-ate and presidential level seems toindicate that despite the controversy over the shocking amount o money being spent on these elections, therace remains a toss-up. Whileneither side is likely to decrease theirspending here in Virginia, it is clearthat money alone is simply not mov-ing the numbers much at all.While both campaigns will con-tinue to target undecided voters withmessaging it seems evident that therace will be so close on Election Day that it will be largely a turnout battleand both senate campaigns have lim-its to how much they can get away rom the men at the top o the ballot.With a small sliver o undecided vot-ers let, it is likely that the unavor-able opinion o Governor Romney being seen among independent vot-ers in most polls can only hurt Al-len. In the same way though, Kainelikely has a certain ceiling keepinghis numbers down because o his tiesto a President seen as weak on thenumber one issue acing voters, theeconomy.While the senate race is still as di-cult to predict as the presidentialelection, the campaign or the 10thCongressional district will requirea bigger surprise to upend expecta-tions. While Northern Virginia hasamously become dramatically moreertile ground or Democrats in re-cent years (i.e Obama 2008), thoseeects are not necessarily enoughto unseat long-time CongressmanFrank Wol. Democratic candidateand ormer ederal prosecutor Kris-tin Cabral does have a ormidable re-sume but lags behind the Congress-man in undraising and is acing theunenviable task o unseating a popu-lar incumbent. In a political climatethat is toxic or political insiders andlong-time incumbents like Congress-man Wol, running or his 17th term,Cabral does have an opportunity topaint hersel as independent reorm-er. Tat message has been ront andcenter so ar or the challenger. Yetwhile the demographics o this regionare certainly undergoing quite a bit o change—and the Democratic base islikely to be stoked by the President’sname at the top o the ballot—it willtake quite a bit to topple Wol whohas served in congress since 1981.Both the local senate and con-gressional campaigns are likely toheat up even urther as the all ap-proaches and both will certainly hitthe airwaves and launch turnout op-erations. Yet none o the races downthe ballot here in northern Virginiacan escape the magnetic pull o thetop o the ballot. For better or worse,the battle between Governor Rom-ney and President Obama will haveas much to say about the results o these other races as the participantsthemselves.
State and local candidates are battling in their own races while dealing withthe unpredictable impact of the presidential campaign. From left are (U.S. Sen-ate candidates) former Gov. Tim Kaine (D), former Sen. George Allen (R), 10thDistrict Rep. Frank Wolf (R) and former federal prosecutor Kristin Cabral (candi-dates for the House.)
