Virginia's 11th District Likely to Flip, Cillizza says

Tim Craig

Washingtonpost.com's Chris Cillizza ranks the seat of retiring Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.) as the second most likely congressional district in the country to flip from one party to the other in this year's elections.

Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Gerald E. Connolly, who secured the Democratic nomination 10 days ago, is running against Republican businessman Keith Fimian in Virginia's 11th District.

No other Virginia district makes Cillizza's top 20 list this week, but some Democrats believe Rep. Thelma Drake, a Republican who represents Virginia Beach, is vulnerable. Virginia Democrats are also hopeful they can give GOP Reps. Frank R. Wolf in Northern Virginia and Virgil Goode in Southside tough races, even though they represent Republican-leaning districts.

OBAMA-WARNER-CONNOLLY.

That is unbeatalbe, although both Warner and Connolly will have to put up with Byrne's negative comments recycled by the republicans.

If Connolly isn't indicted first, he may pull it off.

Connolly will help carry the ticket in Northern Virginia.

Rolland's comment is recycling a false claim made by a discredited NoVA blogger. Both Rolland and the blogger are sore losers because Connolly swamped Byrne in the primary despite the best, but futile, efforts of the "progressive" blogs.

Rolland more like to be troll than Byrne supporter. She didn't have that many.

Wow, you've actually hit the bottom of the barrel in reporting. Your "news" is reporting on something someone else in your office said.

Journalism, RIP.
