BRISTOL (WVVA) - Voters in Virginia's Ninth Congressional District will decide Tuesday whether incumbent Congressman Morgan Griffith has earned another term, or whether challenger Anthony Flaccavento has successfully made his case for the seat.

The Republican Griffith and his Democratic adversary square off in the 'Fightin Ninth,' which includes all Virginia counties in the WVVA viewing area.

The two candidates squared off in a debate in Tazewell County two weeks ago. You can re-watch the debate here.

WVVA's Rachel Lucas is stationed in the Bristol area today and will have reaction from both sides as this race develops throughout the evening.
