Race for Virginia's Senate seat down to the wire

DailyProgress.com :
"Virginia voters in two days will decide one of the state’s most bizarre and nasty U.S. Senate races and end a contest that could determine which political party wins control of the Senate.

The war in Iraq, taxes and, perhaps most of all, the character of the candidates have become major issues in an increasingly bitter fight for a seat that Republicans have held since former Gov. George Allen captured it in 2000 when he beat former Gov. Charles S. Robb by a 52-48 percent margin.

Allen, R-Fairfax County, this year is facing well-funded Democratic challenger Jim Webb, a novelist and former GOP Navy secretary under President Reagan. Independent Green Gail Parker, a retired Pentagon budget analyst, also is on Tuesday’s ballot."
