GOP Who?

Rosalind Helderman

Here's one word you won't here in Bob McDonnell's new ad, featuring cameos by his wife and five children, nor in his earlier ad about his experience: Republican.

Not once does the former attorney general mention that he's seeking the governor's mansion as the GOP's soon-to-be nominee.

It used to be Democrats in Virginia who played that game, running for statewide office without mentioning their party affiliation. That it's now the Republican says a lot about how purple the state has become--and how much the GOP may be worried theirs is a damaged brand, particularly in liberal Northern Virginia.
