Some Virginia residents didn’t get a break from excessive campaign ads for long, according to the Virginian-Pilot.
South Hampton Roads and Eastern Shore Virginians are seeing and hearing from candidates vying for Sen. Ralph Northam’s (D) seat. Northam was elected Virginia’s next lieutenant governor, leaving the Norfolk-based seat vacant.
With a Jan. 7 special election, candidates Wayne Coleman and Lynwood Lewis are all over local airwaves with messages appealing to voters.
The ads primarily focus on the backgrounds of the candidates rather than mud-slinging, which is a huge relief from this year’s high profile campaigns.
