A second poll this week puts Wexton in the lead against Rep. Comstock

Democrat Jennifer T. Wexton holds a seven-point lead over Rep. Barbara Comstock (R) in a Northern Virginia district where President Trump’s low approval ratings could have a drag on the incumbent, a new poll shows.
The findings, from the Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University, echo the results of a separate poll from Monmouth University released earlier this week.
The CNU poll found that Wexton, a state senator, leads 51 percent to 44 percent among likely voters. More Democrats, 75 percent, say they are “very enthusiastic” about voting in November, compared with Republicans who said the same, 59 percent, according to the poll.
Independent voters are breaking for Wexton, 55 percent to 37 percent, a key factor in a district where those voters will make the difference on Nov. 6.

On the road to 100 Town Hall Meetings — Anthony Flaccavento hosts #93!
Anthony Flaccavento hosts 93rd town hall on Virginia Tech’s campus
Democratic candidate for Virginia’s 9th Congressional District Anthony Flaccavento held his 93rd town hall in New…
“Tonight is our 93rd town hall meeting. For you math majors, that’s 93 more than my opponent has done. We’ve done them in every one of our 22 counties,” Flaccavento said. “It’s a great way for you all to get to know one of the candidates, which is hard to do in this day when so much of the information is confined to a virtual medium or TV. So, I think it’s been useful for the 5,500 or 6,000 people who have collectively come to one of the town halls. It’s certainly been very valuable for me.”
Anthony Flaccavento puts people first. Town Hall #100 will be on October 23. Let’s support his huge accomplishment!
