McAuliffe Gears up for "Tour" of Virginia
Former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe appears to be inching closer to making up his mind about whether he plans to run for governor next year.
McAuliffe was a guest on the Larry King Live show on CNN last night in support of Democrat presidential nominee Barack Obama.
King asked McAuliffe if he will run for governor next year.
"Well, we are going to get through Tuesday with Senator Obama and then I'm going to take a tour around the state of Virginia and talk to the voters, let the voters tell me where they think we stand and I'll make a decision quickly thereafter," McAuliffe said.
King responded, "That sounds like he is running."
GOP Strategist Terry Holt, who was also on the panel, then said, "He already sounds like a politician. He won't give a straight answer."
McAuliffe responded, "Barack Obama, Mark Warner."
One of McAuliffe's potential opponents for the nomination, Del. Brian J. Moran (D-Alexandria), will get his turn on the national stage this evening. Moran is scheduled to be a guest on MSNBC with host David Shuster to discuss Virginia's role in the presidential race. Attorney Robert F. McDonnell, the likely GOP nominee for governor, will also appear on CNN's Situation Room this evening.
