The Wapo's blog The Fix by Chris Cilliza mentions the Virginia Senate race even though he thinks it is not worth mentioning at the moment. Chris feels as of now that Sen Allen is in no danger of losing.
The Fix remains skeptical that the Virginia race merits mention in the top-tier of takeover opportunities. First, it's not apparent that first-term Sen. George Allen (R) is particularly vulnerable -- regardless of who Democrats nominate to oppose him.
I think that is what I have been saying. There are no nightmares for Allen. Sure it will be a competitive race but nightmare is a stretch. As we have discussed before the anti war talk will not cut it. The run for the White House wont either. Chris agrees saying
But a potentially distracting White House run isn't going to dissuade voters from reelecting Allen. Democrats will almost certainly try to cast Allen as a clone of President Bush (both politically and stylistically), but Virginia voters have elected Allen to the state House, the U.S. House, the governorship and the Senate over the past decade -- a sign that Allen has found a winning formula in the state.
The bottom line is expect more name calling from the left because neither of the democratic candidates have any real experience in the legislative or executive fields. The lobbyist and the ex republican who got mad and quit working for Reagan. A nightmare indeed.
