Former Rep. Tom Davis (R): The government shutdown has made the race not quite “unwinnable,” but “really uphill…I recovered because I had a year; Cuccinelli has a month, Republicans are by and large taking the hit on this…Ted Cruz has become the face of this…[Cuccinelli] is having trouble with his base…he’s between a rock and a hard place.”

Former Rep. Tom Perriello (D): It’s a “good situation” for Terry McAuliffe, because he’s “been able to show himself to be pragmatist and a deal maker through this…[whereas] Ken Cuccinelli is so deeply associated with the far right, he can avoid the photo op with Ted Cruz but it doesn’t change anyone’s perception that that’s where he stands.”

That about sums it up, huh?
