GOP tries to tie Charlottesville protest images to Democrat in Va. congressional race (Washington Post)

Stephen Farnsworth, a University of Mary Washington political scientist, said the power of those images makes them irresistible.

“In the 5th District and in Charlottesville in particular, these are not half-remembered memories,” Farnsworth said. “The images of Charlottesville a year ago still resonate very powerfully. That’s one of the things to draw from this flier. Asking a politician to forgo an opportunity is probably likely to leave one disappointed.”
