Television time for Virginia politicians
Partisans on both sides of the aisle can look forward to seeing their elected officials featured in slightly unusual television appearances in coming days.
Tonight, U.S. Sen. Mark Warner (D) will appear on an episode of Top Chef, joining MSNBC commentators Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski as a guest judge. Warner is the only senator who will be featured on the show this season, which taped in D.C., though we've seen promos for upcoming episodes that indicate House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will appear at some point.
Meanwhile, Richmond residents should keep an eye out for Greta Van Susteren on Monday. The host of Fox News' On the Record will visit the state capital that day to tape a segment for her show with Virginia Attorney Gen. Ken Cuccinelli (R), according to his people.
Cuccinelli has appeared on Van Susteren's show several times but has always before visited her studio in Washington. This time, Van Susteran will tape the interview in Cuccinelli's office.
We assume the main topic of conversation will be Cuccinelli's suit against the federal health care law. U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson said earlier this month that he would rule by the end of July on whether to dismiss the suit out of hand or allow it to proceed.
