New candidate emerges to challenge Griffith

Radford University religion professor Carter Turner today announced his bid to unseat House majority leader Morgan Griffith, R-Salem. Turner replaces Ginny Weisz as the Democrat on the ballot. Weisz withdrew from the race last week. The Roanoke Times notes Turner’s announcement here, but, for the real scoop, we went to RateMyProfessors.com. According to students’ ratings, Turner earned an overall quality score of 4.3 (out of 5), with a perfect “hotness” total of 5. His bio page shows he has an interest in “the religious and theological dimensions of the American Civil War.” An engagement of the candidates should prove interesting. By Peter Vieth
