2003 rarity - "closely-watched" race for a Va. legislative seat

The Washington Post has this article on the Virginia Senate campaign between the incumbent, Senator "Edd" Houck, "a Democrat who has long represented a Republican-majority district," and his Republican challenger, Robert G. Stuber.

According to the Post, "Stuber opposes all new taxes and proposes returning millions of dollars that the government receives from the personal property tax on cars and from families with children who attend private schools or are schooled at home, as Stuber's two children were."

The election is made interesting by the changing demographics of the district, in the outer sphere of the D.C. metro area.
