Charlottesville precincts aren’t yet reporting results, but CBS news reports Tom Perriello taking the lead in Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene and Nelson counties. Albemarle, with more than 65,000 registered voters, is to Perriello what Virginia is to Barack Obama, in terms of election-turning results.
*NBC29 says, with 94 percent of precincts reporting, Perriello is ahead by more than 2,000 votes. However, CNN, saying 95 percent of precincts are reporting, has already called Goode the projected winner, though he’s more than 1,000 votes behind Perriello. All projections aside, Perriello might just be poised to win this race.
C-VILLE reported yesterday that Perriello was within three points, pushing the candidate to travel throughout the fifth district today in order to meet with voters and do some last-minute campaigning.
C-VILLE made some visits of its own, meeting with Delegate David Toscano and Senator Creigh Deeds at the Recreation precinct this evening. The two local figures shared their own predictions.
