"It's no newsflash that sometimes the Senate frustrates me."

-- Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), in an interview with NBC 12, when asked if he was contemplating another bid for Virginia governor next year.

I'd prefer Tom Perriello or Glenn Nye, but this is okay. Maybe when Warner wins he can appoint Perriello or Nye?

Mark Warner is the only Dem who could compete in VA if Obama is president in 2013.  Look up the state's voting history.

How would that work? Wouldn't Warner have to resign from his seat to run for Governor thus triggering a special election or an appointment by the current governor?

Yeah, your right, sorry. McDonnell would be the one appointing. I'm thinking Nye or Perriello could run in the special election to replace Warner in that situation.

Why would Warner have to resign from his seat to run? He would just resign from his seat the day before he was sworn in as governor.

A lot of times politicians in the days after the election and before being sworn in, they resign from their current seat to begin a transitional period to the next.

McDonnell will appoint some flunkie and then run for the vacant senate seat in 2014.

I'd actually heard this a while ago from our County Prosecutor, who's relatively in with the Democratic Party in NOVA.  It'd be very interesting, if true.  It would also give me hope for a Warner '16 run.

So unlimited number of terms, but you have to pull a Grover Cleveland each time?

But why would Warner do that in this case, when doing so means that McDonnell gets to pick the state's next senator?  Warner would obviously wait until the last possible minute to resign, so that McDonnell doesn't have time to pick the replacement senator.

Just my luck: finally get an institute named after me, but the institute is about Mark Warner. Sad

If Warner is elected governor in 2013, and appoints his own successor in the senate, then that appointment would last for less than a year anyway, because there'd be a special election for the seat in November 2014, correct?

Does McDonnell then decide to run for that seat in 2014, rather than waste his time on a longshot presidential bid in 2016?

Yeah I can see that happening.

No special election - term ends in 2014.  I imagine McDonnell would run for the seat, rather than risking a 2016 run.  Of course, it could risk a fight with Cuccinelli and Bolling.

Bob McDonnell will not run. There is nothing remarkable about him. He will never be remembered as anything. If Cuccinelli wins (Which probably won't happen) I could see him as a failed presidential candidate who is invited to a few debates. That's as far as he's going, though.
