Voters will decide Virginia’s next governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and members of the House of Delegates as well as a few local races on Nov. 5.

But elections officials say it doesn’t look like many voters will be making those decisions.

    Why bother voting? This election has been over for months now.

    Or if you believe in the place of government in the womb but not in environmental responsibility and a assault weapon in every home, vote for Cuccenelli.

    Okay look at it another way.

    If you like ObamaCare, gun control, late term abortions (including w/o parents consent or knowledge), politics as usual downtown Washington, DC style, restricted speech, amnesty for illegal Hispanics, higher taxes and higher gas prices (increased EPA mandates) among just a few similar things, then vote for Terry McAwful.

    If you don't like the mess we've been forced to live in for the last 5 years, vote for Ken Cuccinelli.

    This is a tough election. both sides have gone straight to mudslinging, name-calling and just about anything else "high school". Hard to decide which one of these men are good fro VA.

    The first lines of the article read, "Voters will decide Virginia’s next governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and members of the House of Delegates.."

    This article was written as an attempt to bolster Democrat voter turnout because the DNC is very, very concerned that they are not going to win control of Virginia. That is why the Clintons and shortly Obama stumped for Terry McAwful.

    They know that an "enlightened" voter turnout means that they're Virginia power grab has failed.

    The mention of other candidates in this article are window dressing salt and pepper space fillers all of which depend heavily on the race for governor.

    Instead of picking the fly crap out of each others breakfast pepper Republicans would be smart if they went to the polls and voted for Ken Cuccinelli. If they don't Virginia better bend over and brace itself. Once under Obama's control Virginians will be treated like any other unwanted step-child - A fool and his gold are soon parted.

    ccw, this article, as far as I can tell is about low turnout. I don't understand your rant unless I did not read as thoroughly between the lines as you. Please enlighten us...

    Right on track, and predictably on schedule the Dems never miss a lick - If you cannot dazzle them with brilliance then get in their face and baffle them with BS.

    Let's see - according to all of the recent polls Terry McAwful is so far ahead that there isn't any sense in having the election.

    So, if this is true why is it that the twin kisses of death Bill & Hillary showed up to stump for McAwful? Traditionally this only happens when somebody important way up there in hogs-liberal-vile heaven is worried.

    More polls come out - and McAwful is really stomping mud-holes into Ken Cuccinelli's political coffin... But... just to make sure the deal goes through the king of all things murky and magic, Obama will stump for / with McAwful shortly.

    So, it's all over now for Cuccinelli and the Republicans - - but... just to make sure a little bit more we have a few slightly slanted left articles like this one on InsideNova.
