On the eve of Election Day in Virginia
The Bluefield paper has this article on the race for sheriff in Tazewell County. On Sunday, the Bristol paper reported here all the dirt the Washington County Democrats have accumulated against the Republican candidate for Commonwealth's attorney, including reports that the fellow had some unpaid debts. (The part of the article I liked were the pictures - Congressman Boucher laughing with Fred Parker and Jack White, and in the print edition, Hope Reynolds with her son and nephew.) The Bristol paper endorsed the Democrat, saying that it is wrong for the Republican to promise no plea bargains if elected. The Coalfield Progress reported here on the expenditures of the candidates for Commonwealth's attorney. The Republican nominee, Chad Dotson, still gets the prize for the best (and only) constitutional officer candidate website I've ever seen. This article from the Kingsport paper (registration required) on the race for Commonwealth's attorney in Scott County notes that both candidates were standout football players (which maybe counts for a lot in Scott County).
