CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - There’s a change in Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball for a central Virginia race, a little more than one month out from election day.

Virginia’s 5th District is now a “toss-up” between Republican Bob Good and Democrat Cameron Webb. The race had been leaning Republican, according to the non-partisan analysis from the University of Virginia Center for Politics.

Good and Webb are vying for the seat in the House of Representatives currently occupied by Republican Denver Riggleman. The seat has been held by a Republican since Democrat Tom Perriello was lost the 2010 election to Robert Hurt.
