"Should Frank Wolf be Worried?"

From today's Hotline:
Dem control of VA Senate means they can't be shut out of the post-'10 redraw. Given the drubbing the GOP has taken in NoVa for the last two elections, it's hard to believe cong. Dems will cut the same deal they did in '02. Should Frank Wolf be worried?

Short answer: yes! Longer answer: look what's happening in Virginia generally, as the state moves from red to purple to blue. Look what happened to Wolf's soul mate Jill Holtzman Vogel, who barely held on to squeak out a victory (by 660 votes) for State Senate over Democrat Karen Schultz. Also keep in mind that the 27th Senate district includes Winchester city plus Clarke, Fauquier, Frederick, and Loudoun counties -- all of which are in the 10th Congressional district. Note that Democrat Margi Vanderhye picked up the 34th House of Delegates seat, also in the 10th CD. And, of course, recall that both Tim Kaine and Jim Webb carried the 10th CD, which continues to trend in the Democratic direction.

Combine that with Frank Wolf's record of rubber stamping George W. Bush (on Iraq, stem cells, etc.), and yeah, I'd say Frank Wolf should be worried! :)
