Video: Jeff Schapiro on Cuccinelli's Calculation in Governor's Race

Friday, December 2, 2011

According to Richmond Times-Dispatch Virginia political reporter Jeff Schapiro, speaking this morning at the NOVA Democratic Business Council breakfast in Tysons Corner (which I attended, along with about 50 others):
Clearly the Attorney General is gambling, calculating...that the governor may not have the juice to make the difference, and that Bolling is insufficiently strong to carry the governorship for the party.
I'm not sure about either of those assumptions, as Bob McDonnell is highly popular in his party, and in Virginia generally speaking. I mean, if it were just Bolling vs. Cuccinelli one on one, Kooky would win easily. But if McDonnell throws significant political muscle behind Bolling, I'm not sure how it will play out. Thoughts?
