Dr. Ralph Northam, Democratic candidate for Virginia governor, made a campaign stop in Sperryville last Saturday. Andrew Haley and Lila Helms hosted a fundraiser for the gubernatorial hopeful at Haley Fine Art on Main Street, which attracted about 75 area residents. A new Quinnipiac University poll gives Northam a 10-point lead over Republican opponent Ed Gillespie ahead of the Nov. 7 election. Other recent polls, including one from Mason-Dixon Polling, find the race to be much tighter, if not a dead heat.
