The article focuses on the Senatorial election which appears to be a close race in Virginia. According to Rasmussen poll, former Governor Mark Warner is leading the top potential Grand Old Party (GOP) rivals by 20 points. Moreover, several Republicans in the Congress have built up Senate-worthy war chests, but have expressed concerns on Representative Davis and former Governor Jim Gilmore. In addition, Democrats are looking to make the race close even without their popular governors.
