Former Rep. Tom Perriello’s upstart campaign has edged ahead of Lt. Gov. Ralph S. Northam about two months ahead of the Democratic primary for governor and either Democrat tops GOP front-runner Ed Gillespie by double-digits in a new survey by Quinnipiac University. More than half of the voters remain undecided ahead of each party’s June 13 primary and most voters do not know enough about the candidates to form an opinion. In the Democratic primary, Perriello, the former 5th District congressman, received 25 percent to Northam’s 20 percent, with 51 percent undecided.
