Fifth District gets competitive, at last.

The Cook Political Report has upgraded VA-05 from from “Likely Republican” to “Leans Republican.” This is big, big news in this race, perhaps the biggest of the campaign. Cook is the first and last word in race competitiveness, and the district has never before shown up on their radar. Combine that with the $600k $300k that the DCCC just agreed to toss into the mix (putting the campaign over the $2M mark, by my count), and we have ourselves a competitive race. It’s a first for Goode, and a possibility that I’d lost all hope of seeing.
