  •  Well... Virginia now has two former Democratic (3+ / 0-)

    Governors serving as US Senators. One of them a former DNC chair too. Now it will have another former DNC chair running for Governor. He lost his last try which was also his own first try for office. He should be able to raise a bunch of money and he should be able to define himself well and his opponent as an extremist. I'm no McAuliffe fan but I'd definitely like to see him win if he's going to be the Democratic candidate and I'd rather not see a divisive primary that opens the door for another Republican Governor of the state. It's time for Democrats to start taking control of Virginia. They need to lock in the federal dominance at the state level as well and then start spreading it at the lower levels throughout the state.
