Keys to the Election - Overview
As most of you know, Virginia is basically a big GOP area with pockets of democrats. Unfortunately for us GOPs, those dem pockets are highly populated. Essesntially the election map breaks down into how far out the break-even line is from the center of the democratic stronghold (for example how far from Richmond city you have to go for the dem margin in Richmond to be elminated by the suburban GOP strongholds).
I will have 6 parts to this: the Roanoke Metro area, the 9th congressional district, Charlottesville area, Richmond Metro area, Hampton Roads, and Northern Virginia. I will break down these 6 areas and show what has happened over the past few years. I will also show what the basic strategy will be for this year.
I will have the Roanoke post up sometime tomorrow.
