It is a very tight race between Virginia's governor hopefuls. Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Ken Cuccinelli both stand at 38% among registered voters in a poll by Quinnipiac University Wednesday. Another 21% said they were undecided between the two candidates. The Quinnipiac University poll was conducted by phone from February 14-18 among 1,112 registered Virginia voters. The sampling error was + or - 2.9 percentage points. Virginia will officially decide the new governor in November. "Although the folks in Richmond are paying close attention to the political maneuvering around the Governor's race, most Virginians have not yet begun focusing on it," said Peter A. Brown, assistand director at Quinnipiac. It will be interesting to see what happens in November.

As far as I know, these candidates are both first time runners. I think it will be interesting to see who is elected and what the new governor will do once in office. What happens in the state locally may be altered with the tight economy, federal sequestration, etc. I'm interested to see what happens in the future.
