You’re correct that Virginia will be a pickup seat in 2012. Not so correct that Bill Bolling will go for it. He wants to be Governor. Look at it this way.
Bill Bolling will run for Governor in 2013 - he stepped aside in 2009 it’s “his turn”
Ken Cuccinelli will run for a second term as AG in 2013
Possiblities for the Senate
Delegate Bob Marshall (ran against Gilmore in the 2008 primary)
Prince William County Chairman Corey Stewart
Congressman Randy Forbes
There may be others in the mix. But I don’t see anyway it’s either Bolling or Cuccinelli. Not yet.
I hope to God you’re wrong. George Allen is a meathead. A mere Delegate is a tough sell. Forbes is ho-hum. Stewart might be good.
