We've got our 2009 Republican ticket, right? Let's see, it's Bob McDonnell for Governor, Bill Bolling for Lt Governor and Ken Cuccinelli for Attorney General. Well, not so fast. I am hearing that Western District US Attorney John Brownlee is seriously considering a run for Attorney General. And I couldn't be happier to hear it.
Competition within the party for our statewide offices is a good thing. Not the nasty name calling and personal attacks like we've seen of late. I mean a good, healthy race. I hate the idea of locking into a ticket over a year away from the Convention. Lets have a race and a discussion of issues. It would seem the most likely place for that to happen is with the AG spot. And John Brownlee may be close to announcing his run.
