George Allen announced today that he has hired Mike Thomas -- the man who ran his 1993 campaign for governor -- to manage his attempt to regain the U.S. Senate seat he lost to Sen. Jim Webb (D) in 2006.
Virginians eager to hear whether Timothy M. Kaine will jump into next year's Senate race will have to wait a while longer: No decision is coming until at least next week.
Rep. Gerald Connolly (D) definitively took himself out of the running for the seat being vacated next year by Sen. James Webb (D-Va.), reiterating his hope that ex-Gov. Timothy M. Kaine would be the Democratic nominee for the seat.
While Democrats keep waiting to see whether former Gov. Timothy M. Kaine will jump into the race to succeed retiring Sen. James Webb (D-Va.), a new poll shows former Sen. George Allen in a strong position in the Republican primary.
