Oleszek May Run Again for Senate
Democrat Janet Oleszek, who lost to Sen. Ken Cuccinelli by 101 votes in last year's election, says she's ready for a rematch in 2011.
At the Fairfax County Democratic Committee Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner Sunday night, Oleszek said she thinks she will be able to beat Cuccinelli (R-Fairfax) the next time.
Before that race, however, Oleszek said she plans to work hard next year to keep Cuccinelli from winning his bid for attorney general.
A Cuccinelli victory next year would actually enhance Oleszek's goal of being elected to the Senate because he would have to step down.
But Oleszek said Cuccinelli is "Fairfax's problem" so she prefers that county's increasingly liberal voters take care him in 2011.
"All I can say is I hope she is running my opponent's campaign" in the attorney general's race, Cuccinelli said. "I don't think she is very good at it."
If Cuccinelli seeks reelection, he will amost certainly be targeted by Democrats. Oleszek will probably not be the only Democrat that tries to take him on in, especially considering she came up short last year, even though two other Democrats won their Senate races in Fairfax County.
