The Race Between Cockburn and Riggleman Is Now A Toss-Up

Nate Silver’s 538 says the race is our Congressional District is now a toss-up. We're confident Nelson County is one reason why.

That this district which has traditionally leaned Republican can be this close this early speaks to the strength of Leslie Cockburn’s message and to the enthusiasm of Democratic voters to Flip the 5th and create a Congressional check on Donald Trump's GOP.

We're working hard to see that Nelson County pivots into the Democratic column. Nelson can’t do it alone, of course. All Nelson Democrats want to shout out to their family and friends in Albemarle, Appomattox, Buckingham, Campbell, Madison, Rappahannock, etc., that we need to elect Leslie Cockburn to the U.S. House of Representatives.

The range of possible outcomes is wide and Democrats’ prospects are far from certain. Relatively small shifts could allow Republicans to keep control of the House, or could turn a blue wave into a tsunami.
