Two of the biggest names in the crowded Republican Primary fight in Virginia's 10th congressional district are getting a little closer with a new Democratic website.

Rep. Frank Wolf, a Republican, announced last year that he wouldn't seek another term, making the race to fill his seat one of the most closely watched in the country.

With Virginia Peas in a Pod, Democrats hope to link Del. Barabara Comstock, R-McLean, with Del. Bob Marshall, R-Manassas.

Comstock was an early candidate in the primary and has pulled in several high-profile GOP endorsements. Marshall is a controversial social conservative attempting to challenge Comstock from the right.

The website from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee argues both are outside Virginia’s mainstream. 

“Bob Marshall and Barbara Comstock see eye to eye on nearly every issue, and in all of those cases they are far outside the mainstream,” said Josh Schwerin of the DCCC. “From opposing the bipartisan transportation compromise to supporting transvaginal ultrasounds, Barbara Comstock and Bob Marshall are two peas in a far-right pod.”

Republicans will select their candidate in a firehouse primary on April 26. Democrat John Foust, a Fairfax County supervisor, is the last announced candidate in the Democratic primary.

I wouldn't call this "news" and I don't think you do, either. It is a blatant ad and is inappropriate for a news site. You even included their artwork. Not good journalism. You did not interview anyone from Comstock or Marshall campaign. Are you really a journalist?

Kathy, thanks. This isn't an article. It's a post about a website. We'll be writing tons of these from both sides between now and November. Thanks, again.

If it is not an article, then it must be an ad. It is not a typical post and you show your bias.

Finally, an actual response from Greg Hambrick the listed editor of Herndon Patch. I just hope he is working on items about the various candidates for Herndon's upcoming town election as he for a congressional race that does not directly effect Herndon residents. The only direct effect would be if our current Fairfax County Supervisor, John Foust, would win the nomination and then the election in November. Then a new supervisor for the Dranesville District would need electing.

Walter, Some Herndon zips are in the 10th.
