Virginia's Next Governor: Ken Cuccinelli, Terry McAuliffe or... ?
Does the commonwealth need another name on the ballot?
Republican Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling took himself out of Virginia's race for governor last week, leaving, at least for now, what's shaping up to be a two-person race.
The choice for the Old Dominion's next governor, seven months before Election Day, seems to have boiled down to presumptive Republican nominee Ken Cuccinelli, the state's socially conservative attorney general, against likely Democratic nominee Terry McAuliffe, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee and a McLean businessman.
The Republican Party of Virginia will hold its convention on May 17 and 18 in Richmond to formally select its nominee.
Democrats go to the polls on June 11 to cast their ballots in several races, including governor and lieutenant governor.
So what do you say: Are you happy with the choices that are in line to be on the ballot for Virginia's next governor, or do you think someone else needs to throw their hat in the ring? If so, who?
