Kaine, Allen Deadlocked In Virginia's U.S. Senate Race

The Senate race between Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican George Allen is too close to call six months before the election, a Washington Post poll out today shows, ensuring that the race will be one of the most fiercely competitive heading into this fall's election. 

The poll shows Kaine and Allen are tied at 46 percent each among registered voters in the race to succeed retiring Sen. Jim Webb (D). That's the same place they stood in a Post poll taken a year ago. 

Both parties say they believe Virginia could determine which side controls the Senate as the presidential campaigns look to Virginia as a key swing state.
