Jean, they're calling it "Debate Virginia," perhaps to add gravity.
But one or both of these candidates may decide to use the second of three
scheduled debates-- and certainly their most visible forum to date-- to
generate some real excitement in this most important of Virginia campaigns.
Joining the ever-snappy Doug Wilder on the panel tonight are political
analysts Bob Holsworth and Larry Sabato.
Sabato says despite the dead heat in the polls, Beyer's perceived as the
underdog, and the one to watch.
