    who will forego the convention to go fishing - in West Virginia

    what the article on the Lt. Gov. battle does not mention is that Jeanne Marie Devolites Davis is the (2nd) wife of former Congressman Tom Davis who had wanted to run for governor, but was also squeezed out by a convention.  As a moderate Republican from Fairfax County with strong ties to the high tech community, he would easily have won a primary -  Virginia has no registration by party so you can vote in either party's primary.  He was hoping Jeanne would succeed him, but she lost her reelection to the state senate to Chap Petersen by 10 points in a somewhat purple district covering parts of Vienna and Fairfax City among other places.
