RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The Virginia governor's race has turned into a real-time test of Republican and Democratic positions in the congressional budget battle raging on Capitol Hill. The federal work stoppage directly affecting thousands of Virginia residents has forced Republican Ken Cuccinelli on the defensive while giving Democrat Terry McAuliffe an opening in a race that had been neck-and-neck for months. Now, public and internal surveys show voter support has started breaking McAuliffe's way during the past few weeks. The outcome of the Nov. 5 election in this swing-voting state could provide clues about how the issue will play with frustrated voters in next fall's House and Senate midterm elections.
