The challenge to the Internet pioneers that are out there is getting the swing voters looking at the Internet - the people who aren't engaged in politics through the traditional mediums.

Raising money can be the toughest thing for a candidate to have to do, and it can be a factor that leads some people to decide not to get involved in politics.

More often, it's people who already have some knowledge of the campaign and the candidate generally seeking out more information beyond what they're getting - whether it's on television, whether it's on radio, whether it's in print.

It's definitely a bigger hill for a Republican to climb in a city that's heavily Democratic like Charlottesville. The situation has to be right, and the candidate has to be right, for a Republican to win.
