Even as much of a political junkie as I am, the Sheriff's race would have completely escaped my active attention if it weren't for the Republican and/or Cooper attack on current Sheriff (and Democrat) Stan Barry regarding his retirement. Naturally, as a Fairfax County resident, I added my name, e-mail and zip code to get the updates about this alleged corruption. To this date, I haven't received a single one. Now, maybe they saw my name (I don't use a dummy name or e-mail -- if I write something or communicate about VA politics, it is always under my own full name.) Or more likely, there's just nothing there to say.
