Safe Republican- 13th District

13th District
Outlook: Safe Republican

Democrats have a pretty good candidate in the 13th District this year. Retired Firefighter Bruce Roemmelt has started with strong fundraising and is seen as an energetic and articulate opponent to incumbent Republican Bob Marshall.

Doesn't matter. The 13th is the most conservative in Northern Virginia. Bob Marshall didn't win there by accident. This election may be entertaining- but not competitive.

Well,you may be right, but Marshall is so focused on hot button social issues, that he's very vulernable on issues that a lot of voters in this District are worried about -- gridlock, public education, and public safety. Moreover, Marshall is not just conservative, he's extremely conservative. If Bruce can sell himself as a viable alternative, and make in roads with moderate, and even moderately conservative voters, who are worried about basic government services, he can make this thing in teresting.

Bob Marhsall is NOT conservative. He's a religious zealot who believes it's appropriate for the government to interfere in private family matters. That's so far from small-government true conservatism that he's pissed off a lot of true Republicans (as opposed to religious fundamentalists) in his district.
