John Warner Not Running
— Ace

Not good news though, because Virginia is trending Democratic, Mark Warner could run from his seat, and I think I was told that John Warner's preferred protege is a RINO in his mold.

As a life-long VA resident, I'm legitimately heartbroken that our once proud state has essentially turned into a new blue haven.


I'm sadly expecting the Dems to pick up his seat.  Good riddance to Warner, but as RINOs go (and recent idiocy on his part aside), he wasn't the most offensive one out there

Oh dear God, don't tell me he got caught 'in a wide stance' in a mens room too!

3 It's really only blue in Northern Va the bulk of the state is still RED, baby and this state loves it's guns so whomever runs on the left better be a second amendment lover or they are toast before they even start.

4 No wide stance, he's just old and dopey and worn out.

5 Good riddance to his ego-encrusted arrogance.  If we can get people like Ensign (how's that fund raising going you dumb fuck?) and other shamnesty supporters to leave, maybe we can get some conservatives to run and then the GOP has a future.  Otherwise it is dead.

The blue of Northern VA and the urban areas of Richmond are strangling the red portions of the rest of the state.  It's why Webb managed to win, "Macaca" notwithstanding. 


I have no doubt that Mark Warner could win it, if he runs.  He's well beloved in VA, and nowhere near the buffoon that his chosen successor (Kaine) is.  Davis would give him a run for his money, but I think he'd go down.  Which could have further disastrous effect:  I do NOT want Gerald Connolly in Congress.  Guy's as big of a crook as they come.

I think VA is much less "blue" than most people think.


The Dems who are elected to state wide office run like Republicans. It's usually hard to figure out which is which during the campaigns.


You know, until they're elected and they start governing as Dems.

Given that most of the GOP is content to spend and legislate like Democrats once they reach Richmond it's plenty hard to figure out which is which after the elections too.

12 The Dims are just going to keep mirroring our New England strategy, i.e. nominate a social conservative who hates Bush and Republicans so he won't upset the Kos Kiddies too much.

13 Pity.  I would have enjoyed voting against him in '08.  Ah well.  Hopefully the VA GOP can get their collective shite in order and pick a better candidate.  If not, I'll vote Independent again like in '06 (hey I'm mad, not crazy to vote Democrat).    Also, I wouldn't be too concerned about Virginia.  It's a largely conservative state even with the blue regions.  Yes, the Dems have been doing well recently but that's because the GOP here has been doing so poorly.  If the Repubs have been messing up on the national level, sheesh you should see what they are doing here.  Chichester and his love of taxes is only the beginning...

14 One more thing:  the GOP in Virginia needs to do a better job of picking candidates than North, Gilmore and Kilgore.  Guys like those have been costin them BIG.

15 Oh no! Whom will Chrissy Matthews run to when he needs a Republican to repudiate the Bush administration? Warner was the MSM's new McCain. Quick! Get Linc Chafee on the phone!

16 I just wonder what kind of judges are being put into office when Dems elected. We're paying the price here in Iowa with gay marriage being legalized by some loony judge. Not sure how he got into office though.

17 Agree with commenter #1. Warner used to be good - you used to be able to count on him to be a very strong supporter of the military. But when people stay in office too long, it often seems like it becomes more important to them to be Collegial with their Esteemed Colleagues than to be right.
