Race heats up
Ward Armstrong has long been a verbal opponent of the Republican majority of the Virginia House. Many, including Armstrong, believe that the elimination of Armstrong's old district was an attempt to get rid of him. He has stated "This race has never been about electing Charles Poindexter. It’s been about getting rid of Ward Armstrong." Republicans deny these claims. Republican leaders have since contributed $615,000 to Poindexter's campaign. This over three times the average $200,000 being spent on similar house raises. Armsstrong has raised nearly a million dollars on his own.
In 2009, Poindexter was re-elected to the Virginia House of Delegates. He defeated David Witcher in the General Election.
