Judge Edwards?

Anita Kumar

Sen. John S. Edwards (D-Roanoke) is one of five candidates recommended by the Virginia Bar Association for a judgeship on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

More than 20 candidates had expressed interest in the post. President Obama will make the appointment and the U.S. Senate will confirm the selection.

Edwards. who unsuccessfully ran for Democratic nominee for attorney general in 2001 and considered a run in 2005, also may be considering running again. He would face Del. Stephen C. Shannon (D-Fairfax) in the June 9 primary.

Three Republicans are already in the race. State Sen. Ken Cuccinelli II (R-Fairfax), John Brownlee, the former top prosecutor for Virginia's western district, and David M. Foster, former chairman of the Arlington County School Board.
