Basketball Bipartisanship

Anita Kumar

Greg Scanlon, research director for the Democratic Party of Virginia, won Republican guberanatorial nominee Robert F. McDonnell's "bracket madness" last night when the University of North Carolina won the college championship.

Scanlon came out ahead of 786 other participants, largely because of his selection of Michigan State to advance to the national title game last night.

"This guy knows his basketball,'' McDonnell said. "Democratic Party Chairman Dick Cranwell might want to check how much time he spends researching politics versus how much he spends on's win proves our campaign brings Republicans and Democrats together."

The prize is a basketball game with McDonnell and his twin 17-year-old sons, Sean and Bobby. Scalon can pick his two teammates. McDonnell urged him to ask Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) or the three Democratic gubernatorial candidates to play on his team.

McDonnell suggested charging $5 to the game and sending proceeds to the Central Virginia Food Bank.

If he chooses not to play in the game, Scanlon will be treated to dinner at the restaurant of his choice with McDonnell.
