VA Governor's Race
Normally I would not promote my own state's elections, but with just two (NJ and VA) gubernatorial races this year, it is more note worthy than most. NJ seems to be a lost cause for the Dems, so look to VA for lots of $. The RNC just yesterday pledged to spend $7.5 for Bob McDonnell who had a huge lead until a report found out about a master's thesis where he said, among other things that married women should not work outside of the home. But here is an interesting tidbit from Larry Sabato showing that of the last eight VA governors, all have been elected from the opposite party of the president.
