Virginia by the NumbersBy
RACE TO WATCH: The race to succeed retiring U.S. Senator Jim Webb (D) may be the most-watched Senate race in the country. George Allen, the Republican former governor who lost his Senate seat to Webb in 2006, is running as a fiscal and social conservative and trying to make the contest a referendum on President Obama. Tim Kaine, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, is emphasizing his own record as governor and billing himself a consensus builder.
