#9 of the Top 10

#9

99th District, incumbent, Albert Pollard, all of King George, Lancaster, Northumberland, Richmond, and Westmoreland and part of Caroline County.

Outlook: Likely Republican (PICKUP)

The 99th District is one of the most Republican seats Democrats currently have. In 1999, the 99th District was opened up, and a young environmental activist Albert Pollard surprised Virginia with a victory. With Pollard retiring to spend more time with his young family, Democrats need another surprise.

The challenge for Dems is that not only is Pollard retiring, but he basically endorsed Republican Rob Whittman to replace him. Democrats found a candidate in Linda Crandell, but nothing so far indicates that she can even keep this election competitive.

I was under the impression that no Democrat had filed in the 99th. Not true?

Whittman's in a bit of trouble with the King George GOP. Seems he won't fill out the pro-life survey the committee put forward.

The church-going conservatives might be a bit lukewarm on this one, so don't be surprised if this turns into more of a race, especially if Kaine grows coat tails.

NLS-
Where'd you hear that Del. Pollard endorsed Rob Whittman?
