In a red House district, a Democrat tries to siphon votes from a conservative with a ‘biblical world view’ (Washington Post)

Stephen Farnsworth, a political science professor at the University of Mary Washington, said disaffected moderates in the sprawling district could end up being the deciding votes — if Webb can muster the strategy and the resources. “There is clearly an element of the Republican Party that would be more pro-Riggleman than pro-Good in the district,” Farnsworth said. “The challenge for Webb will be reaching those people and offering them an effective message.”
