    Yes, Eric the Red keeps getting reelected, but with ever smaller margins.  In his first few races in the 1990s he got well into the 70s against little or no opposition.  He has had increasingly credible opponents since, and his margin fell below 60% - 59/41  in 2012 against Wayne Powell, a strong, energetic, reasonably well-funded opponent.

    So, things are moving in the right direction, and we keep pushing.  Help us out by telling the DCCC and anyone else in the party establishment that Va-7 is top of mind.
