Thursday, December 07, 2006
Some afternoon bits:
North Carolina: From kos, via Blue Sun Belt, via Raw Story, Elizabeth Dole's camp denies speculation that she's out and says she's planning on being a candidate for re-election in 2008. Virginia: Despite John Warner suggesting that he's leaning toward running for re-election, Washington Post's Chris Cillizza looks at both Parties' potential candidates if Warner doesn't run again. Cillizza looks at Democrats former Governor Mark Warner, state senator & former state AG candidate Creigh Deeds, and former Congresswoman & LG candidate Leslie Byrne, and Republicans soon-to-be-former-senator George Macaca Allen, state AG Bob McDonnell, Congressman Tom Davis, and former Governor Jim Gilmore. Colorado: More buzzing on Denver as the 2008 Democratic National Convention site: 10 Senators and Senators-elect from the western half of the country sent a letter to the DNC urging for the Denver selection.
