Allen gets a pass, extends lease on the RV through '08
Governor Mark Warner announced today that he will not challenge incumbent George Allen in next year's U.S. Senate race. Warner did, however, pledge to find a "strong Democrat" to run against Allen. I'm sure that Virginia Democrats are breathing a sigh of relief that Warner didn't commit to running a "weak Democrat."
In any case, this is good news for Virginia's political junkies who get two more years to speculate about a potential battle royale between former Virginia Governors for the White House in '08.
