George Allen,  James Webb

VA-Sen Poll Watch: Jim Webb 49% Vs. George Allen 45%

Former Virginia Senator George Allen and Senator Jim Webb

This Senate contest in Virginia will be a battle royal.

We polled the Jim Webb/George Allen rematch that’s now become a reality late last year and found Webb ahead 49-45.

Senator Jim Webb has really not made a move to run for re-election, but it is assumed that he will. George Allen will announce his candidacy later in the day.

In a state where the Republican nominee for President must win, if he or she is to beat President Obama, this race may revolve around turnout. This contest will involve a lot of personal campaigning and plenty of television ads in one of the most expensive Senate races in the country.
