  •  It's the Clinton machine (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    which while not particularly strong in Virginia, can help make or break people in a Democratic primary thanks to money and the value of the Bill Clinton endorsement.  After all, it seems the Lanisters Clintons always pay their debts and it doesn't take too much imagination to think that Bill has been manipulating things behind the scenes for McAuliffe.

    It also doesn't hurt McAuliffe that there isn't really anyone with a lot of stature to challenge him.  Deeds was an embarassment, Periello is too obscure by now, Moran, Connolly, and Scott are all too liberal, Warner and Kaine seem fine with the senate, we hold no other statewide offices, and a lot of potentially attractive state Senators would probably put their seats at risk by running.

    NC-06/NC-04; -9.12, -8.62; Yellow Dog Democrat
