The Long Shot's Long Walk

Democrat Jeff Barnett is taking on 15-term Rep. Frank Wolf in Virginia's 10th district. While the race is not expected to be competitive, Barnett sought to drum up support and media attention by walking the 80-mile district in six days.

The Wolf campaign says it has left no stone unturned this election.

Its [Barnetts] prerogative to do whatever he can do to get attention, said Dan Scandling, spokesman for the Wolf campaign. Hes going to run his race and were going to run ours like were 10 points behind, which means meeting with constituents, small businesses and rotary clubs in every corner of the district.
