Virginia Candidates Pin Hopes on White House Race
Before the sun had risen over Langley High School in McLean, Va., Tuesday, LuAnn Bennett had passed in and out of the gymnasium to cast her vote for Hillary Clinton and positioned herself outside the exit.
Standing in front of a table of Dunkin’ Donuts (“free for everyone”) manned by volunteers for the Virginia Democratic party, Bennett, who’s running for Congress in Virginia’s 10th District, greeted early risers who straggled in to cast their vote for president on Super Tuesday.
Normally buzzing with teenagers, Langley High School, partially under construction, was closed Tuesday to accommodate the anticipated crush of primary voters. With the rising sun came a steadier stream of McLean residents, but not enough to stop a school employee from asking, “Where are the crowds?”
