#7 is not exactly true, Webb and DNC has run some negative ads, and has made some negative comments about Allen. You need to understand Allen has very popular governor in the Commonwealth before he was the Senator and has Warner supporting him in the southern part of Virginia big time. And unfortunately the racist thing- Confederate Flag behind his couch in his log cabin (who the f has log cabin on East Coast) and the noose in his office, haven't really hurt him before in elections.
