Ben, I do know a little about this district being a BOS member in Floyd Co. Before this could be considered a swing district I would think there would need to be a small showing from the local democratic party. Here in Floyd there are no local elected Democrats and a year ago when most seats were up only Republicans ran. I don't know how you could field a competitive candidate without some sort of local party support. Rush has been active in the community and is well liked by all I have spoken to. I expect it will be his seat as long as he wants it.

Lauren, you nailed it- can't have a race without two parties wanting to compete. I just can't understand how Dems have gone from winning many of these precincts in similar races to be unable to field candidates in just a couple of election cycles.
