This chapter examines the role of the Christian Right in politics in Virginia. It suggests that a Christian Right politics can be successful at the polls, but it does have its limits. This is because it tends to falter electorally if waged with utter impunity and a heavy-handed lack of finesse. Religious Right politics in Virginia has learned to flourish only by having its preferred candidates demonstrate a willingness to compromise and by shrewdly emphasizing the most popular parts of their conservative agenda.
