Mason Adams has a very good story on the contest here in the 10th district. His story, headlined "Armstrong, Young differ on governing styles" offers some insight to a race that some outside the area have conceded to Armstrong.
Young is very popular in Patrick County, while Armstrong has lost much of his appeal in the Henry County area.
The people of Henry County that I talk to (both parties) feel he has been too sophomoric in many of his antics on the floor. They also notice, as Adams points out, that Ward has never been very effective.
