Dem: Obama wouldn't win Virginia today

Washington (CNN) – Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) said if the 2012 presidential election was held today, President Barack Obama wouldn't win Virginia, a state he carried in 2008.

Speaking on local Washington radio station WTOP Friday, Connolly said, "In my opinion, no, today he would not win the state."

Despite security concerns lawmakers return to public life

WASHINGTON (CNN) - A week after the assassination attempt against Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, her colleagues in Congress have a message for constituents: their job is not changing.

"What do you think about health care?" two-term Congressman Gerry Connolly, D-Virginia, asked a fellow diner at a restaurant in Falls Church, Virginia, Friday.

Congressional rematch in Virginia

ANNANDALE, Virginia (CNN) - With just ten days before the highly anticipated mid term elections, the candidates for Virginia's 11th Congressional district were out on the campaign trail Saturday. Democratic Congressman Gerry Connolly and Republican candidate Keith Fimian walked along the parade route of the Annandale Fall Festival trying to woo voters.

Rep. Connolly is hoping to win a second term in battleground Virginia where polls currently show him with a tenuous lead.

CNN 100: Virginia 11th rematch could set tone on Election Night

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption =" The CNN 100 takes a look at the top 100 House races, from now until Election Day."]Editor's Note: In the final 100 days before Election Day, CNN has been profiling one race at random each day from among the nation's top 100 House races, which we've dubbed "The CNN 100." Read the full list here. Today's featured district is:

Virginia 11th – Rep. Gerry Connolly (D) is seeking a 2nd term
Primary: June 8, 2010
Location: Northern Virginia/D.C. suburbs
Days until Election Day: 90

Though Virginia's 11th district has no greater strategic importance or significance than any of the other 434 congressional districts in the nation, Republicans would probably still get an extra kick out of defeating its freshman congressman, Democrat Gerry Connolly.
