  •  I don't think he'll be able to moderate . . . (3+ / 0-)

    his image as McDonnell was able to in 2009 (even though, in reality McDonnell was anything but).

    I was a McAuliffe skeptic last time, but I'm on board this go-around.  He burned through a lot of money in the primaries and finished third, in part because he didn't have a natural base or any real ties to local state parties.  He was arguably the hardest working candidate out of the bunch though, and I think he will have much stronger support with local county parties, because he has continued to work actively since then.  He can make a strong go at it this time.

    I kind of hope that Warner doesn't run, because it will be especially hard to retain his seat in the Senate.  However, he would win the Governor's race easily if he chose to run.
