Connolly won't enter Senate race, hopes Kaine will run

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.

Tim Kaine, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, quickly became the first choice for many Democrats, but the former Virginia governor previously said he was not interested in running. Former Virginia Gov. L. Douglas Wilder (D) said that may change if President Obama asks him to run. "The President needs to have Virginia in his camp next year,'' Wilder said. "Who is that person that can galvanize and bring support from the base? As Governor Kaine said before, you can't turn the President down." Other potential candidates include two Democrats who lost their congressional seats in 2010 -- Reps. Rick Boucher and Tom Perriello. Mame Reiley, a longtime Democratic consultant and Democratic National Committee member who worked for former governors...

The letter, dated Jan. 19, follows the National Defense Authorization Act for 2011 requirement that the secretary of the Army create a transportation plan for the Base Relocation and Closure, or BRAC, movement to the Mark Center at I-395 and Seminary Road within 90 days. "Though we have serious doubts that the full implementation of BRAC #133 [Mark Center] will lead to any result other than failing levels of service, the Army can mitigate this by implementing the following recommendations," the letter read. The recommendations include waiving defense department rules and paying the $20 million for short- and mid-term road improvements at the site; subsidizing local transit and...
