Local Politics Goes National
Virginia going for Obama wasn't the most exciting political news around the Charlottesville area this last week. That honor belongs to the 5th congressional district race between Republican incumbent Virgil Goode and Democratic challenger Tom Perriello. The story has even made the front page of Slate. While a recount may be forthcoming, right now it looks like Perriello is headed to Washington--a very encouraging (if surprising) result.
