The AFP on WREL: Oct. 22, 2010

AFP editor Chris Graham joins WREL’s “Online with Jim Bresnahan” to talk Virginia news and politics.

The segment begins with Chris providing an update on the latest news in congressional races in the Fifth, Sixth and Ninth. Republicans appear poised to hold onto the Sixth District seat and take back the seat in the Fifth from Democrat Tom Perriello. The Ninth District race is interesting with Democratic incumbent Rick Boucher and Republican challenger Morgan Griffith dueling to the wire.

The segment wraps with a discussion of the new 70-mph speed limits on many Virginia interstate highways announced this week by Gov. Bob McDonnell.
