The College Republican Federation of Virginia is out with a solid analysis of some of the Commonwealth’s most competitive House of Delegates Races. They’re pretty optimistic, predicting victories for incumbents Del. Joseph Yost (R-12), Del. Chris Head (R-17), Del. Barbara Comstock (R-34), and Del. David Ramadan (R-87). They also think Republican Scott Taylor will pull out a victory in the open race in the 85th:
Taylor came out on top of a highly contested primary that gained statewide attention and will be facing Democrat Bill Dale in the general election. This district seems to favor the GOP. Although the district had less than a point of difference between Obama and Romney in 2012, McDonnell and the GOP ticket swept 2009, and the seat is being vacated by a retiring Republican. All signs point to a win for Taylor.
Let’s hope they’re right. Read the whole thing.
