Goode Out, But Count On Stiff Challenge to Perriello

Rosalind Helderman

The GOP clearly believes Democratic Rep. Tom Perriello is vulnerable -- but the man Perriello beat for the job won't be the guy carrying the Republican flag in 2010.

The Martinsville Bulletin reports that former Rep. Virgil H. Goode Jr. says he doesn't plan to run for the seat in 2010.

But someone's clearly going to do so. That's the clear signal from new Republican National Committee radio ads running in Perriello's district, hitting him on health care.

It's part of a $1 million, multiweek effort by the RNC targeting 60 Democratic representatives in swing districts. Also on the list in Virginia: Reps. Glenn Nye and Rick Boucher. The ads instruct listeners to call the targeted lawmakers and tell them "to say no to this dangerous experiment."

Dems aren't taking such efforts lying down. President Obama will hold a town hall to push health care reform in Bristol later this week.
