Call him the man with the momentum.
Jim Gilmore's five point lead from last week has almost doubled in our latest NEWS7/Mason-Dixon poll.

VO-NAT


Today, he's got a nine point lead and our pollsters call him "a solid favorite" going into Tuesday's elections.
Gilmore has a 49 to 40 edge over Don Beyer and has narrowed the gender gap among women to just two points.
The race to watch now becomes the lieutenant governor's race, where Democrat L-F Payne's lead has shrunk to three points-- within the margin of error.
Republican John Hager could now clearly benefit from Gilmore coattails.
The attorney general's race is static for now, with slightly fewer undecideds than last week.
But with Republican Mark Earley at 44- percent, he's still up by five points over Democrat Bill Dolan.

Here's his proposal: PREPRO
The state will reimburse the city or county for the tax on the first 20- thousand dollars of your car or truck.

Kimberly Morris serves from the near court for the Knights, and after a nice job setting up the ball, Amil Davis winds up with the solid return.
