Democrats are hoping for a strong turnout tomorrow.

Former lobbyist Harris Miller and former Regan official Jim Webb are vying for the Democratic nod in the Virginia Senate primary election.

Both candidates are against George Bush, against George Allen and against the war in Iraq, but local Democrats hope people will come out to vote because they say there are some clear differences between the two Democrats.

“Miller is supported by many of the traditional elements of the Democratic Party, and Webb is a former Regan official who says the party left him,” said Former Democratic Chair Lloyd Snook.

The polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow. The winner will face Republican Senator George Allen in November.
