Kaine tells enthusiastic Virginia Democrats he needs more time

Hundreds of Democrats from across Virginia descended on the capital city Saturday night to raise money for the state party, catch up with longtime friends and, of course, speculate about who might run for U.S. Senate next year. The state party's biggest fundraiser of the year turned into a guessing game as activists contemplated who among their party might run to replace U.S. Sen. Jim Webb in one of the most-closely watched Senate races of 2012. Timothy M. Kaine, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, former Virginia governor and possible candidate, was greeted by enthusiastic crowds of activists in his hometown by those wanting him to run. Numerous party leaders, including U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner and the state's congressmen, urged him from the stage to jump into the race.

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.

Terry McAuliffe schmoozes Richmond

Terry McAuliffe, the once and (likely) future gubernatorial candidate who has been trying to buy a paper plant, build energy-efficient cars and lay the groundwork for a second possible run at the governor's mansion, has been prowling the halls of Richmond talking to anybody who wanted to talk this week.
