Democrat Terry McAuliffe maintains a 7-point edge over Republican Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II in the race to be Virginia's next governor, with Libertarian Robert Sarvis still pulling numbers that suggest he could influence the final outcome of the closely watched contest on Tuesday.
National Republicans are pouring money into the campaign of Republican attorney general candidate Mark D. Obenshain, attempting to salvage at least one of the top three statewide offices they swept four years ago in Virginia.
A poll released Thursday suggests that Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II's campaign is struggling to reach voters on key points as the Virginia governor's race hits the home stretch, perhaps explaining a new line of attack the Republican's campaign began this week.
For the second time in a week, Virginia poll results suggest an independent gubernatorial run by Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling would have little effect on likely Republican nominee Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II in a contest with Democrat Terry McAuliffe.
