(CNN) - Two Virginia political heavyweights on Sunday said the presidential race in the Old Dominion, a crucial battleground state, would come down to a nail-biter.
Sen. Mark Warner, a Democrat, and former Rep. Tom Davis, a Republican, each argued on CNN's "State of the Union" that his party's candidate would carry the state - but they agreed the final results will be close.
(CNN) - With Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama focusing on Ohio and Virginia in recent days, two former leaders from those battleground states added their input Sunday on who will carry the states this fall.
Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, a Democrat, said the outcome will be close in November. But he argued that in the end, the president will take the Buckeye State.
(CNN) – Tom Davis, the former Republican congressman who has become a leading moderate voice within the party, says it remains to be seen if the Tea Party movement will prove to be a positive force within the GOP's fold.
"The courtship between the [Republican] Party and the Tea Party at this point is ongoing," the former seven-term Virginia congressman told a gathering of reporters Wednesday. "It's a trust-but-verify thing. At one point the Tea Party had a higher approval rating than the Republican Party, but of course they've never had to govern anything."
