Keeping You up to date on the status of Virginia's 2005 Delegate races!

Campaigns are well known to be slow starting here, right on the North Carolina border. We waited for a while to call these, but we are ready now.

Two Delegates return to Richmond:

60th: Clarke Hogan
61st: Tommy Wright

Nothing exciting to add to this- both district were represented by Democrats for decades, now they are Republican and the Democrats don't seem to care. Neither district is a knockout if the Democrats decided to field a viable candidate.

I just counted it up. You've called 40 for the GOP so far. Also 2 Indy's that caucus with us. That's 42.3 other seats in primaries you rate safe. That's 45. Plus 7 others you have as "likely GOP".

Unless we lose a couple of likely GOPs and even without the rest called- you just called a GOP majority!
