9 Days Out

Churches all over the state are going to be blitzed this morning. Often times the harshest rhetoric of a campaign comes out today the 2nd to last Sunday. I like to call this day in the campaign "Bloody Sunday." What did you all see this morning?

In particular we're interested in what the black churches in Richmond were doing this morning in regards to the McEachin-Miles and McClellan-Law primaries. Also, we're sure Culpeper, Madison and Orange county churches were flooded by minister Mark Jarvis, challenging incumbent Ed Scott. Chantilly and Loundon churches are likely being covered by youth minister Chris Craddock, who is challenging Gary Reese. Also we'll see if Bill Bolling covers my church in Chesterfield County this morning.

This thread is open for you report on "Bloody Sunday".

Mark Jarvis spent most of his morning scowering the Unitarian churches for votes.

All quiet in the 54th. Plenty of Kenney signs and a couple of good articles in the FLS (article plus QandA session in the Opinion section), but all quiet.

Mark Jarvis hurt himself so badly in Madison's debate with Ed Scott Friday night that Mike Sharman cut it off after 40 minutes.

I saw plenty of Bulova signs on Braddock Rd this morning as well as a bunch of Fitch signs and Mason signs.

I've seen some internal polls from the Puckett camp.

Apparently only 32% of likely Democratic primary voters are aware that Leslie Byrne eats babies.

Get off Leslie... that ship has sunk. I'd start talking shit about Bskerville if I were you.

NLS:

There is something that I think is really important for you to disclose. It's been holding lots of people back from giving you tips, I'm sure.

You need to tell us whether you are on either party's committee or connected to the inner workings of either party. It's a bit unfair if people are emailing you anonymous tips and you're passing them on to candidates on one side.

Personally, I'm assuming that you're either (1) a journalist or (2) a professor. If you're connected to a campaign (even if it's a governor's campaign) I think that's a bit unfair.

I am not involved on any statewide or Delegate race right now. Tips are not forwarded around. Thanks for giving me the chance to clarify.

Thanks for that.

In the 71st it still feels like Law by a wisker...Jen's money is keeping her viable but my gut tells me she comes up short....in the 74th Miles has not done anything to put a dent in McEachin's lead...Miles has sent a lot of mail dealing with education...McEachin has done the same, but has also put out a piece taking Miles to task for voting to allow guns onto school grounds

NLS-How effective do you think mail will be this week. I assume the statewides drop mail this week...then all the Delegate Primaries will drop more this week...will anybody read the stuff...are there any true undecideds left to persuade?

NLS, while you are on the defensive I would like you to confirm or deny that macaroni and cheese is your favorite meal.

Seriously, folks - If NLS was involved in a campaign would she really be sticking it to both sides on a regular basis?

So, what happened down in Chesterfield County? Did Bolling or any of the others blanket your church with literature?

Mark Jarvis found out that Unitarians were unlikely to vote for him. A strategic mistake.

Here is another tid bit from the 74th....Miles ducked out on a debate with McEachin in Charles City County....the forum was set for Saturday evening...Miles was a no show although a spokesman said he had the proverbial "prior engagement"

anon- that was a VERY funny original post on the Unitarian churches, sorry I didn't respond right away.

anon- I ended up not feeling so well, so I skipped church this week. I heard in 2004 that church attendance was a good predictor of presidential vote- so I would like to assure everyone I attend exactly 50% of the time... :)

Baril has been calling into Northern Virginia houses with a nasty pack of lies about McDonnell. Looks like that last desperation punch (to the nuts) before getting knocked out.
