According to Barbour, that's if Perot stays in the race and splits the vote.
But new poll numbers from The Washington Post show Clinton has a 22 point lead over Dole, and Perot with only eight percent.

(( Defense lawyers are dissecting Nicole Brown's life and the image they're presenting is not flattering. Robert Baker's opening argument includes stories about promiscuity, parties with drugs and prostitutes. Then there was an abortion after he said she got pregnant during a relationship following her divorce from O.J. Simpson. Baker said, she confided in Simpson about the pregnancy, that he was her friend and confident, not an angry stalker. ((LORI LEVINSON: INSTEAD OF JUST RESTORING O.J.'S CHARACTER, HE WENT AHEAD AND ATTACKED THE VICTIM. )) It was too much for Nicole's mother and sister Denise, who left the courtroom in the middle of Baker's statement. The defense statement followed the last plaintiff lawyer, who said Simpson had an uncontrollable rage regarding Nicole, that he was obsessed with her and wanted to know her every move. Simpson listened to the lawyer, sometimes rolled his eyes, shook his head and apparently mouthed, that's not true. The next step: calling witnesses. The plaintiff's will be first and they'll try to do what prosecutors couldn t: show that O.J. Simpson had a motive and enough time to kill Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.

Two patients are from Montgomery County, one is from Floyd and the other is from Giles County.
Two are in critical condition, the others are stable.
Right now, state epidemiologists are working with the New River Valley Health Department-- they're also investigating a rise in pneumonia cases in the region.
