VA-Sen: Candidate TBD

Posted by Bob Brigham

IMHO, Virginia's 2006 senate race is more important than this year's gubernatorial race. Next year is shaping up to be a great year for Democratic challengers, but we can only take advantage of the backlash if we have good Democrats running. That is why I was glad to see this mention from the AP:

RICHMOND, Va. - Gov. Mark R. Warner pledged Tuesday to find a strong Democrat to oppose Republican Sen. George Allen next year after removing the most formidable Democratic challenger — himself — from consideration.

Every district in 2006, especially Virginia.

Virginia is definitely winnable with the right Democrat running... unfortunately Warner may be the only "right Democrat" when it comes to the Senate seat. I know there is a Draft Warner movement out there (http://www.warner2006.com), but I don't know if there will be ANY way to convince him to run.
