VA 11th District: Andy Hurst (D) ad taking on Tom Davis (R)
No question that Andy Hurst has an uphill struggle against Tom Davis, who has parlayed constituent service and his original reputation as a relatively "good government", moderate repub into substantial cross-over strength in a district that is fairly evenly split (or even marginally Democratic), even though Tom has clearly jumped the shark and no longer deserves his reputation as a moderate.

Whether Andy can pull off the upset is a question, but he's making a better run at than anyone has in years (in 2004, Kerry and Bush each got 49% of the vote in the district, while Davis trounced his Democratic opposition by a 60-39 percent margin).

Andy has an ad that he's going to start running on TV that could really give him a boost with those that don't know him and don't know Davis' real record.
