Perriello pulls to virtual tie in Fifth

By appearance, anyway, Fifth District Congressman Tom Perriello has made up a huge gap in his race with Republican Robert Hurt.

Two new polls out this month, including one released on Tuesday, have the race as a virtual dead heat. A Benenson Strategy Group poll commissioned by the Perriello campaign has Hurt, a state senator from Southside, in the lead by a 46 percent-to-44 percent margin, with independent Jeff Clark at 5 percent.

A Global Strategy Group poll released on Sept. 7 had a similar two-point margin for Hurt, with Hurt at 44 percent and Perriello at 42 percent, and Clark at 6 percent.
