Will the Manafort and Cohen Convictions Hurt Virginia Congressional Republicans?

This week brought the news of Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen both being found guilty of federal crimes and the word “impeachment” more frequently being used surrounding President Donald Trump. On this week’s show, Norm and I look at some of the polling data and wonder if this bombshell news might impact any of the Virginia races.
