And the Republican candidates for Virginia in '05 are...

It appears that my endorsements made it through. This is not a surprise (and not because of egotism) as these candidates were the more conservative or better known candidates. For Governor, former AG Jerry Kilgore (R) will challenge Lt. Gov. Tim Kaine (D) and Russ Potts (I). For Lieutenant Governor, Bill Bolling (R) will take on Leslie Byrne (D). For Attorney General, Bob McDonnell (R) will take on Creigh Deeds (D).

Early prediction: Russ Potts will show himself to be more liberal than conservative, hurting Tim Kaine and ensuring a win for Jerry Kilgore. Pushing a balance in Richmond, swing voters will give Leslie Byrne the win for the number two spot. And again, the red staters of Virginia will trust a conservative to hold criminal accountable, giving the AG spot to Bob McDonnell.

Of course, the Red Stater will be hard at work helping to make sure that this red state sees a clean sweep.
