Went to a Perriello town hall tonight.

I told him I was disappointed with his flip on the Stupak Amendment. I was hoping for a Time Kaine type "well, I'm personally, pro-life, but..." response. But he actually told me he wants a state constitutional amendment protecting access to abortion. I don't think Northam has even gone that far left.

He also had LuAnn Bennett introduce him; her campaign last year basically emphasized all the issue I disagree with the party on. She said she's not running again.

He keeps talking about nationalizing the race, which I don't like. Seeing nationalization used against other Democrats in the south during the Obama era, I want local races to be more nuanced than that.

Overall, I'm still leaning towards Northam.

And a pic:

NARAL endorsed Northam.

Makes Perriello's switch on this look even worse, IMO.

Thanks. I had NY as D+11, but I trust Cook got this one right.

I did those myself. NY was a tick over D+11.5, so I rounded up.

I calculated the state PVIs a while back, but I'm not sure if Cook has released them yet.

Excuse the normal color scheme:

I don't like either obviously, but I'm rooting for Northam. Perriello was the point man for the fake Catholic organizations discussed in John Podesta's emails and a lengthy resume of fake moderateness from back when he was pretending to be a blue dog. I don't agree with Northam on much, and at face value he's the more hostile of the two toward the pro-life movement, but he's still better than Perriello.

I'm still trying to decide. I've always liked Perriello, but for some the reasons TJ said, I'm tilting Northam.

Mostly this. I'm also not really happy with how Perriello is trying to delocalize the race (outside of the issue of Medicaid expansion, which is low-hanging fruit) and make the election a referendum on Trump. It already is, for the most part, but making it more overtly so probably helps Perriello. However, that doesn't make me any more confident that he would actually be a good governor of Virginia, which I'm afraid he won't be.

Along those lines, I think that Perriello would want this to be part of his national profile, while Northam just wants to be Governor of VA.

Seeing Jindal put his national ambitions ahead of governing has me a bit weary of that, even on my side.

I've heard from some who know him that Perriello, deep down, believes abortion is wrong. I wish he'd just own up to that, and the endorsement he got from the NRA in 2010, instead of running from it.

I saw in a photo that he lost his leg, but has a new one.  I wonder if he's the first person in Congress who's lost a leg? 

The district is swingy.  I guess Patrick Murphy could run for it again.

Off the top of my head there's Tammy Duckworth, and I'm sure there have been others before.

John Stennis lost a leg to cancer.
