Close races coal country! Our expert can help explain what might happen in Virginia this TuesdayNovember 5, 20181 min read
This Tuesday may be the most watch midterms in decades. Though it is quickly coming cliché to say this might be the ‘most important’ election to date…it is definitely the most important election since the last election.
In Virginia – it’s a fight for key Congressional seats as well as for Senate.
The thing to keep in mind is, midterm voters are not the same group as general election voters, in Virginia, it’s the seniors vote that shows up and demands to be heard.
That could play a big part in the re-election efforts of form Vice Presidential candidate and current Senator, Tim Kaine.
As well, with President Trump keeping his commitment to coal – will that play a part?
There are many issues at play this week in Virginia that will impact not just the state, but potentially the country. That’s where our experts can help.
