“Despite the Republican attempts to make this a national election, people understand the difference with local and state elections,” he said. “In this case, it’s really a question about the direction Richmond is going to take.”
Moran, the state party chairman and brother of Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), agreed.
“Next year’s race is going to be competitive regardless of what happens on Tuesday,” he said. “But, obviously, both of them have been working very hard on behalf of their party candidates.”
