But it's not the reason he lost.

I agree. Hopefully the RPV will let the grassroots select the candidate next time instead of the party bigwigs. Bill Bolling and Bob McDonnell should have the opportunity, if they so choose, to run in a primary. The RPV selected Jerry Kilgore very early on. Kilgore was an excellent AG but not necessarily the right candidate for governor. I also agree with those who said his loss was due to the lack of a resonant message and poor advertising choices.

I'd have to disagree there. I announced the "Kilgore for Governor 2005" campaign on FR the day after Horseface was elected.

Kilgore would have been an excellent Governor. But he ~turned into~ a lousy candidate.
