RICHMOND -- Two former governors with sharply contrasting ideas about government clash Wednesday in the first debate of Virginia's nationally prominent 2012 U.S. Senate race.

Republican George Allen, trying to regain the seat he lost in 2006 to Democrat Jim Webb, and Tim Kaine, who served more than two years as Democratic National Committee chairman, debate at 1:30 p.m. in the Virginia Capitol.

The debate wraps up the 10th annual Associated Press Day at the Capitol, a daylong series of forums on Virginia politics and government for journalists at AP member news organizations.

The debate is hosted by the Virginia Associated Press Managing Editors, the Virginia Capitol Correspondents Association and the Virginia Pro Chapter, Society of Professional Journalists.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch is streaming the debate live at http://www2.timesdispatch.com/online/live_video/

I know I am just a stupid TEA guy and the media is much smarter than me... so can you help me read this sentence?

Republican George Allen, trying to regain the seat he lost in 2006 to Democrat Jim Webb, and Tim Kaine, who served more than two years as Democratic National Committee chairman,

So did Allen lose to Webb and Kaine in 2006 or is he running against two people. I did not know two people could serve as senator..

I believe tea parties from Virginia are going there to protest.

Please consider joining them if you are able.

The Tea Party is behind Jamie Radke, who has been campaigning tirelessly in the Republican Primary.
