Virginia Notebook: Transportation Predictions

So what's going to happen next week during the special session on transportation? Probably not much, but who knows? So we are not even going to try to make a prediction. We'll leave that to others. Here is a sampling of predictions -- as a well as a few partisan shots -- from current and former state legislators and lobbyists....

Walter Curt Heads Up GOP Fundraising

Del. Jeffrey M. Frederick (Prince William), the newly elected chairman of the Virginia Republican Party, continues to shake up the leadership of the state party. Since defeating former lieutenant governor John H. Hager for the chairman's job last weekend, many of the state party's senior staffers have resigned or been dismissed. Frederick plans to announce today that Walter M. Curt, owner of Power Motors Inc, a Harrisonburg-based technology firm, will be the party's new finance chairman. Curt replaces Fred Malek, who resigned from his finance role at the state party last week. Malek still serves as the deputy national finance chairman for Arizona Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign....

House Republicans and Democrats Continue Squabbling

Republicans and Democrats in the House have been bickering since the legislative session started last week. First, there was the flare up about changes to the rules, then committee assignments and yesterday, it was the question of whether raising per diems would be used later in campaign attack ads. Today, Del. Timothy D. Hugo (R-Fairfax) brought the per diem issue back for a second day in a row by accusing Democrats of trying to smear GOP candidates in last year's legislative elections....

McDonnell Has $500,000 in the Bank

Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell's campaign committee, McDonnell for Virginia, raised $605,040 in the second half of last year, according to newly released financial reports. He contributed more than $123,000 to local and state Republicans in the November election. The committee has $585,812 on hand that could be spent on candidates for office -- that includes his own possible run for governor in 2009....

Va GOP Has Edge in Money

After being badly outspent by Gov. Timothy M. Kaine and the Democrats in last year's state legislative elections, Virginia Republicans have at least one reason to be optimistic as they gear up for this fall's elections. According to year-end campaign finance reports released today, the Virginia Republican Party has twice as much money in the bank as the Democratic Party of Virginia. Republicans reported $219,524, compared to the Democrats' $71,900....

Pollard to Run for House

Democrat Albert C. Pollard Jr. announced today that he will run in the Feb. 19 special election to fill his old House seat. "I have always enjoyed public service and we are in a better financial position to serve than when I stepped down,'' he said in a statement. "For these reasons and because of the outpouring of encouragement to run, I am declaring my candidacy." Pollard represented the district for three terms until he left in 2005. The recent vacancy was created when Rob Wittman left to run for Congress....
