WASHINGTON - "None of the above" could be the deciding factor in the Nov. 5 election for Virginia governor.

Getting people out to vote has been the focus for both Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Ken Cuccinelli over the last two weeks, perhaps a bit more than usual, says University of Mary Washington political science professor Stephen Farnsworth.

"Both of these campaigns are really fighting a great deal of hostility to basically everybody in government right now," he says.

Farnsworth says that sentiment could keep people at home on Election Day.

"Neither campaign has been all that effective in making the argument that they themselves are the good choice," he says.
