Good Profile of Perriello vs Hurt 5th District Race

The Roanoke Times has a good profile of the hotly contested 5th District Congressional Race.

Challenger Robert Hurt, a Republican state senator from Chatham, is running a campaign like a front-runner: skipping debates in recent weeks and leading in the polls as his campaign continues to paint U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello, D-Albemarle County, as an ally of President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Perriello is pushing his independence, including an ad running in recent days that he broke with his party on numerous issues, including his support of a balanced budget, family farms and his A rating from the National Rifle Association.
It should be noted that Hurt also has consistently earned an "A" rating from the NRA as a member of the Virginia General Assembly and has always supported the rights of gun owners and sportsmen.
