The AFP on WREL: Oct. 29, 2010

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

The segment begins with a look ahead to next week’s congressional elections. Will Republicans make the big gains that the analysts have been projecting for months? What will it all mean once the dust settles?

The next topic is the Sixth District race, with commentary on incumbent Bob Goodlatte’s prospects going up against two third-party oppponents.

We wrap with a report from Chris on the latest in the ongoing work on Interstate 81 improvements.
