Old Outlook: Leans Republican
New Outlook: Slight-Lean Republican
Today's Republican convention can only be considered an amazing gift to the winner of the George Barker-Greg Galligan primary. Give Jay O'Brien credit though- he saw how damaging this would be to his campaign far in advance and worked his butt off to stop it from happening. Sadly for him, the few votes short Julie came up today may also cost Jay his seat.
No question, this is now the #2 Senate race in Virginia.
