Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

6th District Update

NLS has a new post on the 6th district race. He is wondering if Annie B can win even though she has almost no support (financially) within the district.
I believe she can. Annie B has "raised" $66,904 and only $6,281 has come from her district.
Even so, Keister has raised $86,272 and has only raised $16,625 from the district ($6500 of that was a donation from himself).
So about 9% of Annie B's money has come from the district and about 12% of Keisters has. Probably this is a very low donor area, but I don't know.
One other point, Keister's opponent 2 years ago, Morgan Morris, only raised $1,000 of the $55,000 from the district. He was outspend 3-1 and still only lost by 51 votes.
I think since Annie B is close in funds w/ Keister, she will probably win it walking away.
She is also having a fundraiser next Wednesday morning with George Allen. Perhaps that will increase her district money flow.
This race will continue to get more interesting the closer to election we get.
