Mason-Dixon: Downticket races still wide open; A1
Further down the ticket, the races for attorney general and lieutenant governor remain very much open contests, according to the latest Mason-Dixon poll.
"With the governor's race still very competitive, it is hard to predict how these races might break," said J. Bradford Coker, the managing director of Mason Dixon polling and research. "The attention of most voters will likely continue to remain at the top of the ticket."
A large segment of voters do not recognize any of the four candidates.
State Sen. Bill Bolling, R: 39 percent
Former Rep. Leslie Byrne, D: 36 percent
Undecided: 25 percent
State Sen. Creigh Deeds, D: 33 percent
Del. Bob McDonnell, R: 36 percent
Undecided: 31 percent
All four candidates have also reported their financial status as of Sept. 1.
