Stephen J. Farnsworth, a political-science professor at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, said the fact that Stewart is focusing energy in southwestern Virginia shows that he is still trying to build support among Republicans.

“The fact that Corey Stewart is spending a lot of time in the Southside and southwest Virginia – an area that he ought to have, politically speaking, in his pocket – suggests that he is still trying to energize the Republican base,” Farnsworth said.
