Now onto the Senate campaign in Virginia- it appears the 20 million dollar race for the U-S Senate is tightening up in the final days.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]


This week's NEWS-7 Mason-Dixon polls shows 47 percent of likely voters say they support George Allen.
44 percent support Democrat Chuck Robb.
That leaves nine percent still undecided.
One month ago, Allen had a more comfortable 48 to 41 lead over Robb in our poll -- with 11 percent undecided.
The shift seems to be coming almost exclusively from WOMEN voters, 51% are lining up behind Robb... 40% behind Allen.
That's an expansion of Robb's 46 to 40 advantage in September.
And it's a significant change from July, where Allen and Robb were neck and neck with women voters, both polling 43 percent support.

Not to confuse matters, but another poll released today, done by Virginia Commonwealth University, shows George Allen with a much more commanding lead.
