The AFP on WREL: Oct. 15, 2010

AFP editor Chris Graham joins WREL’s “Online with Jim Bresnahan” for their weekly discussion of Virginia politics.

The segment begins with a look at the latest in the midterm congressional races in the Fifth and Sixth. Polls show the Tom Perriello-Robert Hurt race in the Fifth to be neck-and-neck. Sixth District Congressman Bob Goodlatte seems to have smooth sailing ahead, but he’ll have to win without the endorsement of the area Tea Party.

Chris and Jim also discuss the ongoing legal wrangling led by Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli over federal health-care reform and the political resurgence of former governor and U.S. senator George Allen.
