Signer looking ahead to political future

I caught up yesterday with Mike Signer, and realize even more now what I like about the guy who I endorsed in his unsuccessful bid to become the Democratic Party lieutenant-governor nominee. “I’m just calling to say thanks for all of your hard work, and to get your input on what you think I ought […]

Vindication – Deeds takes Democratic nomination in dramatic fashion

When Creigh Deeds announced his candidacy for the 2009 Democratic Party gubernatorial nomination back in December 2007, it was not exactly with the full support of the Democratic Party decisionmaking set. The whispers at the time and for months after were that party leaders had been trying to persuade Deeds to make another run at […]

It’s time we get past the divisions that we’ve allowed to hold us back the past several years in Richmond and get Virginia moving forward, and most importantly get our economy moving forward.

And then there were two – Bowerbank suspends LG campaign

I’m not sure what to make of the news that Jon Bowerbank has decided to drop out of the race for the Democratic Party lieutenant-governor nomination.

Poll has McAuliffe separating from Democratic pack

Another poll has Terry McAuliffe opening up a double-digit lead in the race for the Democratic Party gubernatorial nomination.

While all three are good people, over time […]

Moran, Wagner take leads in pre-primary polls

Brian Moran has moved into the lead in the governor’s race, and Jody Wagner seems to be running away in the battle for the Democratic Party lieutenant-governor nomination, in a new Public Policy Polling survey out Tuesday.

McAuliffe, Moran neck and neck in new poll

Terry McAuliffe has a slight lead in a new poll measuring support in the race for the 2009 Democratic Party gubernatorial nomination, but Brian Moran is within the statistical margin of error, and Creigh Deeds is not that far behind. The poll conducted by Public Policy Polling over the weekend has McAuliffe, a former Democratic […]

Signer shares vision for LG job

What does the lieutenant governor in Virginia do? Tim Kaine was a pretty good LG back in his day, I think in large part due to the fact that he took what is basically a part-time job with limited constitutional responsibilities and turned it into a full-time gig as Mark Warner’s eyes and ears out […]
