Verga is competing in the GOP Primary for the opportunity to unseat freshman Democrat Tom Perriello. Cook Political Report classifies the seat as an R+5 on the PVI index, making it one of a handful of Congressional districts held by a Democrat, in a Republican leaning area.
As a pledge signer, Mr. Verga has made a commitment to the taxpayers in Virginia that he will fight to ensure that their taxes are not increased. Congressman Perriello is not a pledge signer, but ATR encourages him and all candidates seeking Federal office to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge.
